Attendee Availability problem in Outlook 2000 Calendar

Hello folks

We run a 2000 Exchange Server and access mailboxes using Outlook 2000. One of our meeting rooms seems to have a small issue where if you look at meetings that have been booked for that particular resource, the Response Column in the Attendee Availability screen does not show up.

I'm sure the answer to this is dead easy but it seems to elude me and my colleagues.

How do we get the response column back? (Please bare in mind I have tried to customise the view but it wont let me tick the response box)

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Kind regards

2. Do you have other resources that exhibit this problem?

By the looks of things, this particular resource has always had the problem.
I cannot find any other resource that has the same sort of issue, and I was a bit concerned about creating a new resource and moving all the appointments that are currently booked for that room in case I lost those bookings?

Is it easy enough to just move across? My Outlook knowledge is not the best, I must admit!

Thanks for your input


I can't guarantee everything will transfer across but why not create a new resource and just copy everything and then check it before redirecting everyone to the new resource.  You will have the original resource intact if everything goes pear-shaped!

In any event, creating a new resource may help you discover if the lack of the Response button is a general or specific problem relating to the attributes of the resource you are creating.
