Setting a recurring calendar appointment to 'private' in Outlook 2003

Is there some way to set a recurring calendar appointment to 'Private' in Outlook 2003?

All of our users calendars are shared so that we can see when/if they are out of the office or unavailable and we would like to define which appointments are private.
I am able to set individual calendar items to Private by selecting 'Private' after right-clicking on the appointment but it is greyed out when it comes to any recurring appointments.
Is there a way around this?

I have roughly 100 users that could potentially have pay days / regular doctors appointments etc in their calendars which they would like to make private.

Is this when trying to make an already existing recurring appointment private?
Or does this happen when making a new one as well?

There is also another way to do this. (Can't believe I didn't see it before)
When you open up an appointment or series, there is a tick box in the bottom right of the window that says 'Private'.
It's not very obvious so perhaps this info will help someone else too!
