I can successfully import CSV(windows) and Tab Seperated Values to the CONTACTS folder in Outlook, but whichever way I try to import CSV data into Outlook 2003 or 2007 it looks like the import bar goes all the way accross and finishes and closed the import window, but then there is no data in the calendar. Anyone have this problem?

Hello ZionTech1,

Make sure your procedure to import calendar items is correct. Follow the procedure here

If no joy, how did you create your calendar items.  Outlook is particular on how CSV appears. Open the CSV file in an Excel spreadsheet and check there is a formating error.

Hope this helps!

Thanks war1, I am doing the procedure correctly as by your procedure. I exported the calendar to a csv from a program called Anytime Calendar. I have tried coverting the csv into and xls with DEFINED NAMES with the same none result also. I even deleted all the data over 2000 rows, except for one row of data and tried importing that way with the same none result. I have tried this in Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007. It worked fine for the address book I exported, but not the calendar. Is there a way to "verify data" with a program to see what the problem is?
