How to export specific outlook calendar category only and import it into a different calendar?

Howdy,

I have created a category specifically for planning the next school year and assigned tentative dates using the category with the intent to exporting that specific category into the school's master calendar at some point.  How do I only export the one category and import it later into the master calendar in Outlook?  When I've tried to export .pst and identify specific category within advance tab, I get an error message "operation failed.  Object could not be found."

Thanks,
Steve

Make sure the calendar is highlighted before going to the 'Filter'. (Check the subfolders box if necessary)
The "Categories" should be found on the "More Choices" tab.

The easiest work around would be to temporarily create a new calendar, copy the items you want to export.  The export the temp calendar.

In the folder tree, right-clcik your calendar and select NEW FOLDER.
Folder should contain calendar items and  can be named anything you wish.

Right-drag the items from one calendar to the next and select copy.
