When I open public folders and all public folders and right click on accounting calendor, and try to select properties, then permissions, I get an error that says ( some permissions could not be displayed. Client operation failed). What can I do. The Exchange admin gets the same. The Exchange admin cannot even see the folder, I can, but cannot change anything and I am an admin with the credentials to do so.

Is this in Outlook or exchange system manager? You should be able to see what permissions it has in ESM.

Force your way in using Exchange System Manager.
You want Client Permissions though - don't touch the tab labelled Security.

I can get into ESM just fine. But where do I find Client Permissions?

habakkuk3178 - this is an old question. Unlike a forum it is not possible to "bump" questions back up the list. The only people who will see your post are those that have already participated. Instead you should post your question as a new question in the Exchange Server Zone which will allow other experts the chance to see the question and respond.
