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.

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??

>>> however when you try to look at the calendar no data is displayed, its blank.

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.

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??

So you don't need to get the data back??? If so, then the problem is solved isn't it?? Nice when peolple tell you that after searching for about to many hours... But, nice to know it is solved..

If it is solved, you can post a question at the support section to let the question be deleted.
