Outlook 2003 doesn't archive calendar items

Hi!
  I'm stumped.  I've got a user with Outlook 2003.  His calendar has over 160mb of data, because he attaches relevent docs to each meeting request.  The problem is that his calendar is taking up over 1/2 of his alloted mail space.  I setup a new PST, went into FILE - ARCHIVE, picked the THIS FOLDER AND ALL SUBFOLDERS, selected the CALENDAR folder,  and ARCHIVE EVEN IF DO NOT ARCHIVE.. options.  I set the date to 1/1/2008.  I clicked the OK button, and Outlook showed "Archiving..."  at the bottom of the window.  However:  the PST file remains empty.  I've tried multiple times with no luck.  I've gone as far as removing and re-creating his Outlook profile, including a fresh OST file, and tried it with Cached mode on and off.  I even ran a full reinstall of Office 2003 sp2.   Anyone have any thoughts?

Thanks!

I tested and see the same behavior.  Message indicates archiving in progress but nothing is archived.

A workaround:  manually move the items
from Calendar, select View-->Arrange By-->Current View-->By Category
this will display the calendar items in a list format.  arrange by date.  you can multi-select an entire date range and then choose Move To Folder from the Edit menu.  Select the calendar folder in the PST file you wish to archive the items to.

OK, I'll give that a try.  Don't know if I'll be able to get ahold of a dept. manager on a Friday afternoon, but I'll see what I can do!   Thanks!

Sorry for the delay, nothing harder to get ahold of than a director's laptop. :)  That worked!  Thanks!
