Outlook 2003 Calendar bad entry issue crashes outlook

Q: Outlook 2003 Calendar bad entry issue crashes outlook

Windows 7 pro using Microsoft office suite 2003. The outlook email and calendar application of that office suite worked fine for both separate logged in users of this desktop pc. After user two incorrectly entered a calendar reminder that appears blank and the recurrence symbol shows the diagonal line through the re-occurrence symbol, the bad entry could not be deleted. When that date arrived, as outlook checked for any reminders, the program immediately locked up and insisted it be closed. The user number one has no problem at all with their calendar or email using the same outlook email/calendar program. How can this "false" entry in user two's calendar be deleted without losing all other entries for future recurring or single calendar reminder events? The program itself will not allow the entry to be opened or deleted since it immediately closes when checking for reminders.

I use Outlook 2003 and I am having a weird issue with it; it is something that came up totally out of the blue. In my Calendar (I always have it set on the monthly view that shows all the days of the month and appointments at a single glance) most of (and I cannot see the pattern as to which ones have changed and which have not) the appointments I entered are still on the day I put them on BUT they ALSO span across that day and back another day and the notice now has a black clock icon on each side of the appointment. I have no idea what caused it or how to fix it. I've closed and reopened Outlook and I have even restarted the computer to no avail. Does anyone have an idea what happened and more importantly how to change it back to the way it was before?

Hi all, I'm hoping someone has run into this before because it's driving me insane. I have a user who has created a personal distribution list, (she is not using the GAL) and when she uses this list, she gets bouncebacks (undeliverables) from two employers who are no longer at the company. Neither of these users are in AD at all, neither are (or were) delegates of the DL owner. I have deleted and recreated the DL twice, thinking that it is corrupt, and that has not fixed it. I have deleted the autodelete function, which did not work either. This is ONLY happening in her calendar, not regular email. There are no different permissions in her calendar, either.
Ideas, anyone???

Looked on the forum and could not find any good info.

The issue is that I have multiple calendars. I am trying to merge the two and delete the copy. Can't seem to find a way to do this.

Reason I need to merge them is that not all of the appts carried over in the copy and many of the new ones ended up in the copy rather than the main calendar folder.


A:Outlook 2003 Calendar Issue

Which view were using to copy the appointments over? I would probably look into changing to a list view or making one and bringing both calendars data into an access table. Within here I would run a query on the data to ignore the duplicates and then import the data into a calendar. After this I would delete the two old calendars and rename it if necessary.

Hello. This is my first time posting here, so hopefully I'm doing this right.

I was trying to import calendars (NHL team schedules) from two different Excel file (.xls extension) to Outlook 2003 and not all of the inputs added to the calendar.

For some reason, only 43 entries added from each file (86 total). There should have been 82 each (164 total)

I tried deleting the rows in the Excel file that DID load and just leaving those that did not, and then importing the file again hoping the fewer rows would help. It did not.

All of the inputs that are not loading are in the same format in Excel as those that did, so I know that's not an issue. I also tried changing the dates to see if, for some reason, Outlook has a limit to how far into the future they will allow you to add. Same problems.

I can add appointments into the Outlook calendar manually with no problem, but I can't seem to import anything else from any file.

Can someone lead me in the right direction to see how to fix this? I've never had this problem in the past when doing this same thing.

In tools/accounts/change I selected "Deliver my mail to a new location" and choose a PST file. That wasn't working well for me. So I switched it back to use the exchange server and instead set up a rule to move items from my inbox to my "inbox" folder in my pst file.

My issue is the residual calendar in my pst file. When a meeting notice goes to my "inbox" in my pst file and I accept it, it goes on the calendar in my pst file instead of the calendar in my exchange server.

How can I get rid of the calendar in my pst file that was created when I chose to deliver mail to that pst file?

Hope I'm making sense.

Ive got an Outlook 2003 using Boss and a Outlook 2002 using Assistant who are having issues with sharing their calendar. The assistant is inputting appointment data into her bosses Outlook 2003 Calendar.

The issue is : The 2002 user puts in a whole day appointment on a given day (say 10/10/2004). When she opens her bosses 2003 calendar, the same appointment is still a whole day, but it stretches across 2 days (in this case 10/10/2004 and 11/10/2004). Both users use common Regional Settings (Australia).

Outlook 2002 user is at Office XP SP3.
Outlook 2003 user is at Office 2003 Pro SP1
Exchange Server 2000 (sp unknown)

Anyone have any ideas for me?

We are using Exchange Server
Some staff in our executive branch have brand new laptops (lucky guys) with Office 2007[Of07]. They are creating calendars which need to be shared with other employees, most of which are running only Outlook 2003 [OL03].

Calendar(s) are made, and invites sent for specific calendars to specific groups of users.
IE: Regional Sales Mgr. creates several supplemental "events" calenders he wants to share with his different teams.
---Default, Corporate, Dist1, Dist2, Dist3, Region
---DistGrp1, DistGrp2, DistGrp3
---Dist1 calender --> DistGrp1
---Dist2 calendar --> DistGrp2
---Dist3 calendar --> DistGrp3
---Region --> DistGrp1, DistGrp2, DistGrp3

All OL03 users get an email with a link to Microsoft explaining how to open shared calendars. Off07 users get the icon to click and open specified calendar.

OL03 user then follows MS instructions, and pulls up the Off07 user's default calendar, with no option to open or even locate any other calender.

Is there something lacking here? Anyone have any work-a-rounds for OL03 users to open a shared calendar (other than the default or main calendar) of an OFF07 user?

Thank you.

Within AD (win2003) I have got two separate users accounts one of them is called General Manager and other is called info.

General Manager user has an email address which is : [email protected] and info has an email address which is : [email protected]

While a go a general Manger asked that he wanted a copy of all emails that are delivered to [email protected] to be delivered to his mailbox as well (means emails that are destined to info mailbox should be destined to his mailbox as well )

What I did as below :

Within Active Directory Users and Computers > select the info user account > “ Exchange General " tab > " delivery options " > “ Deliver messages to both forwarding address and mailbox “

What happened after that a calendar for [email protected] was created automatically within the manager office outlook 2003. That means he had two calendars one for general manager and other for info user

These days he asked me to remove the calendar for [email protected] from his office outlook 2003 (not email).

I tried to think about a proper phrase to search via google but I could not figure out that

What should I d o to remove [email protected] ?

whatever i try to do on my outlook that has to do with .PST file management results in a crash where outlook quits - below the event log on one circumstance.

if i go to control panel > mail settings > data files 2 of the files that are in use (& work) do not show up, one of them the default mail delivery .PST. in these two, trying to access the advanced properties gives an error:

The operation failed. An object could not be found.

now - general googling tells me that recreating the profile could perhaps fix this - but i would love to avoid that as there's no manageable UI to set up the email accounts and there's many in use.

any suggestions? any way of backing up email accounts but not the other things pertaining to the profile?

I would like to know if I can configure my Outlook 2003 Calendar so I can make a queue of tasks and then drag specific tasks into the calendar. I know how to generate a task list and I know how to create "appointments" in the calendar, but I can't seem to view both the task list and calendar at the same time. I'm trying create a scheduling system for our landscape company without having to invest in expensive software. We do not need a robust system, just one that we can have the crews view and access information attached to their specific "appointment". Does anyone have ideas?

A:Outlook 2003 Calendar

I am not sure about Outlook 2003, but in 2007 you can view your tasks right next to your calendar by clicking view > to do bar. You can also drag tasks to the calendar, but since you can set reminders in your tasks why bother? Do you have an Exchange Server or is this seperate standalone instances of Outlook? Access is great as a personal organizer, but I think it falls short in a lot of ways as a scheduling application. There are far better tools out there to do scheduling.

I'm administering an Exchange/Outlook 2003 environment, and was asked to make each user's calendar viewable by all other users. I know this can be done through delegation, but that would be too tedious of a job doing it manually. I believe it can also be done on the Exchange server itself, but was told this would open up the entire mail store - inbox, calendar, contacts, etc...

Can the calendar be done through a group policy?

Using Outlook 2003, when we display multiple calendars side by side (or even just one for that matter) the header just reads "Calendar" in the scheduling area. The only way we can tell one user's calendar from another is by the color coding, so we have to be very careful.

Just got Outlook going on a new wireless laptop, and we noticed that each person's name is displayed over the scheduling area. Great! It's also Outlook 2003, so is there a setting we need to change on our other PC's to accomplish this?

A:Outlook 2003 Calendar Views

Got this figured out! Turns out we had to go into Tools, E-Mail Accounts and change some options. Outlook had been set up to open mailboxes of each user, which isn't necessary in the newer version of Outlook 2003 when you just need their calendars. After they were removed there, we could go back and open a shared calendar and they automatically popped up under Other Calendars and now display their name across their schedule.

I don't have Outlook here at home, so I don't remember the exact steps I had to take to get to the open mailboxes area, but if anyone has this problem and needs assistance, just ask & I can double check the steps at work.

I have ensured that Word, my default email editor, isn't using the "smart quotes" option.
