Calendar Items missing after detect and repair

I did a detect and repair in outlook 2003, and many of my appointments disapeared from my calendar. MY email account is connected to an Exchange Server.

Does this make sense? Is there any way to get them back?  I don't think they were in a separate PST/archive file.

It seems as though outlook created a new pst file for you. Here is a website that might help. I'm also going to quote a part that i think will help you out.

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/HA010771141033.aspx

Accessing the old Outlook data file
If you use a POP3 account, or you set up your Exchange account to deliver to a local Personal Folders file (.pst), you need to set up Outlook to open the file.

On the File menu, point to Open, and then click Outlook Data File.
Click the .pst file you want to open, and then click OK.
The name of the folder associated with the data file appears in the Folder List (Folder List: Displays the folders available in your mailbox. To view subfolders, click the plus sign (+) next to the folder. If the Folder List is not visible, on the Go menu, click Folder List.) in the Navigation Pane (Navigation Pane: The column on the left side of the Outlook window that includes panes such as Shortcuts or Mail and the shortcuts or folders within each pane. Click a folder to show the items in the folder.). If you never changed the display name, it is still the default Personal Folders.

You are halfway done. You now probably have two Personal Folders listed in the Navigation Pane. The first was created by Outlook when you first started Outlook and provided information about your account. The second folder is your old data. You can verify that your original data is back in Outlook by viewing the Inbox or the subfolders under one of the entries. You should see all of your old items.

If you see two entries called Personal Folders in the Navigation Pane, we recommend that you follow the quick steps in the "Customizing the data file display name" section to make the next procedure easier. If you see only one top-level folder called Personal Folders, skip to the "Delivering messages to the previously used .pst file" section.

Please read everything before making changes, but i think this should do the trick.
