    Copy Calendar (Office 97 on WinNT 4.0)

    A department here wanted a user, Phil, to have a copy of a calendar in Outlook that wasn't Outlook's real calendar. So, they made a blank copy of the calendar for him. (Hope that's not confusing.)

    Phil kept his information on this calendar and was very happy. One day, Phil gets his own machine with his own Outlook. Now, he wants to import the information from his old (copied) calendar onto his new (real) calendar.

    When we tried to Import/Export the information from the old/shared machine to the new/personal machine, a second calendar was created in which his appointments, etc, were stored (on the new/personal machine).

    Is there a way to get the appointments, and other calendar information, from the imported calendar to the 'real' calendar without dragging and dropping each appointment from one to the other?

    Sorry this is so long...Thanks

    Sounds like it imported OK, except for where it imported, am I correct?

    If so, did you try selecting the calendar folder first, then running the Import/Export wizard? On the screen that you choose what calendar to import there should be an option "Import Items in the Current Folder".

    We tried selecting Calendar and then importing. It imported the second calendar just fine. What happened though was that we the imported calendar as a second one that was a 'subfolder' of the real calendar...

    Did you make sure when you ran the Import/Export wizard to choose the option "Import Items in the Current Folder"?
