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.

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??
