    Change in a recurring date (2003)

    I have a recurring appointment going well into the future. The past 2 months are set in place. Now I need to change from now forward. When I tried to end the recurrance on the last date necessary in order to start a new meeting, it said it would destroy any exceptions to my recurrance from the past. yuk! Any way around this?
    thanks.

    Sorry, but no. You could go to the trouble of recreating past exceptions as separate meetings, but if the exceptions are in the past, does it matter?

    Yes. I want an accurate record of when the meetings took place.

    I was editing my Post about the time you replied - my revised second sentence is all I can suggest.

    Try this. First, backup your current Outlook data file. Then, export your calendar to a .pst file. Then make the changes you wish to your active calendar. Open the saved calendar. Drag the old appointments from the saved calendar to the active one. It will entries will look to be duplicated but you could note which are the correct ones.

    Good idea! Working from your idea, it might even be easier to simply create a child calendar, copy all items, or just the relevant "exception" appointments, to it, change the recurring meeting, then drag back the exceptions. Almost as many steps, but a bit simpler.

    That is better. You don't have to mess with a separate file and is more straighforward.
