Outlook calendar items do not display after import.

i am running windows xp and outlook 2000 and i recently exported a public calendar to a pst file. the file is about 500k in size so i know the data exported. when i try to import the calendar it looks like it imports. in the folder list it has the calendar in bold text with a 78 next to it. however when you try to look at the calendar no data is displayed, its blank. when i went back and looked on the machine that i exported from, the calendar is now blank but it had da bunch of entries in it minutes earlier. please help.

You may want to take a look at the view settings, make sure that there are no filters in place, that all appointments should shown regardless of past date, etc.

Normally this shouldn't be a problem.. Maybe the Calendar folder had a different name in the Outlook 2000 version. Do you still have the pst file or not??? Where is the (78) in bold placed??

Maybe you can use this one.. Import as a CSV file...

Have you tried Mob-bom's option???
Or maybe you can use Exmerge to extract the total pst file from the user and add it as a personla store??
