How to remove random meeting reminder.

A user has a daily meeting reminder that pops up in Outlook 2003 and on his BlackBerry.  But, the problem is that the meeting had been deleted from his calendar long time ago.
Where do I even look to remove this ghost reminder?
Thanks

Hi, WPC479.

Try launching Outlook with the /cleanreminders switch.  To do that, click Start, Run and enter the command "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office11\Outlook.exe /cleanreminders"

Oops.  Is there a similar switch for Outlook 2007?  I forgot he is one of the few with Office 2007.

Yes.  Substitute 12 in place of 11 in the command line.

Nevermind. I found it.  The quotes had to be in different location as below and office# changed to 12. The end quote has to be after .exe"

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\Outlook.exe" /cleanreminders

Thanks a lot for the pointer.

I guess I should have asked or checked before doing this.  I was rushing so much today and didn't realize running this option would remove every reminder in his calendar.
