Outlook shared calendar not updating main calendar

Hi,

 If I enter an item in a shared calendar (public folder) with outlook 2003 and then invite myself I no longer get the "do you want to update your main calendar prompt", I get the first prompt about the update not being tallied as it's not my main calendar, but not the second. Thus the event is in the shared calendar only.

Does anyone know how to avoid this?  manually entering each event twice is a pain

Check you have the latest Office SP installed:

Then check your calendar settings:
Tools>Options>Calendar Options>
Check that "Show "Clcik to Add" prompts on the Calendar" is checked

Right, sorry. Thats in 2007.

As above just check you have sp3.

Would also try closing outlook and reopening using
Start>Run>Outlook.exe /cleanprofile

Then Close again and reopen using
Start>Run>Outlook.exe /cleanschedplus

Now test

Any particular reason for the B Grade?
Did the above not resolve the problem? Or did you have to do something else to fix the problem?
