Cannot import meeting files

Sometimes I get meeting notices emailed to me from an outside party.  They come in as an .ics file.  I am thinking I should be able to import it in to my Outlook calendar, correct?  It won't.  I receive "Could not complete the operation", "one or more parameter values are not valid".

Is this happening because the user is using Office 2002 and I have Office 2000? or, is there a setting somewhere on my system that is out of whack?   Thanks

Greetings, snyperj.

> I should be able to import it in to my Outlook calendar
I'd say yes.  How are you trying to import them, and can you post the contents of one here so I can have a look at it?

I am saving a copy of the attachment to my hard drive and then in Outlook by using Import and Export > "Import an iCalendar or vCalendar file"  How do I post the content?  I can't even open it.

I figured it out.  It is a known interoperability issue between Outlook 2002 & Outlook 2000.

I opened it in my home version of (Outlook 2003) and unchecked the "reminder" box and forwarded it myself at work where I could then bring it in to Outlook 2000 without any further issues.   How dumb- but, whatever.
