    Multiple Calendars - single view? (2003/sp1)

    Dear Longers,

    I have a number of calendars which I manage separately and want to continue to do so. However for my own personal planning it would be useful to have a composite view of all of them. There is the import/export option, but apart form the bother of having to manually remember to do it or at least know when you last did it, I am not sure it won't create duplicate entries so I would rather find a more elegant solution.

    Does anyone know an easy way of doing this?

    thank you................. liz

    If you're on Exchange Server, there is a feature called Group Schedules, but that is not available in the stand-alone version of Outlook, as far as I know. See Sharing Microsoft Outlook Calendar and Contacts (again on the Slipstick site) for other solutions.

    If you are on Exchange and have View permissions to the applicable other users Calendars, a side-by-side Day/Week/Month View is available in native Outlook 2003. In practice the number of Calendars you can view side-by-side is limited by screen display size and settings. See the second para in <post#=399532>post 399532</post#>, does that help?

    Edited by HansV to make URL clickable - see <!help=19>Help 19<!/help>

    I don't know if this will work in Outlook 2003 but I use a multi-calendar viewer that I got <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> from MS. I was able to use it to view quite a few calendars, all within one window. You can find it at the following link:

    http://office.microsoft.com/download.../OLMltCal.aspx

    There are instructions on that page as to how to set it up.

    That requires the user to be on Exchange Server.

    If all else fails... it seems that it should not be so difficult to have a "Combined" calendar and write a VBA procedure to clear it and then copy from all the other calendars into it for a period you designate (e.g., current month, current quarter, etc.). But it would be static, just a snapshot in time, so not as good as a "real" view.
