How can I view my own Outlook shared calendar

I have set my Outlook 2003 calendar to be shared with specific people. But some of my appointments are private. I would like to somehow see what they see so that I can make sure I properly marked appointments as private.

My question is basically, can I share my own calendar with myself and then view my own calendar with the limited permissions? Is there some other way for me to quickly see how my calendar would be viewed by someone else?

So basically you want a private calendar?   Just create another calendar in outlook.

I was just using the Private checkbox on my items. I think this works well so that I can synchronize with my BlackBerry and multiple Outlooks. I have just setup my Outlook Calendar to be shared with my secretary, and I have read that she will not be able to see the private items. I basically want to be able to confirm this visually.

Hi, sypder.

No, that's not possible.  You'd have to create another account, share your calendar with that account, then sign in using that account to see the results.

Thanks BlueDevilFan. That's unfortunate, even Facebook let's me see what my profile looks like to someone else. I appreciate the response.
Just goto one of the users machines and make sure the permissions are set correctly This is absolutely the easiest way to solve this problem.
Sypder, I can assure you that any appointment that you mark as private will not be visible to anyone. This includes even the systems administrators (unless they open your mailbox directly). If you still need to be able to see what it looks like to someone else, just have someone else pull up your shared calendar and see what shows up like. Be sure to grant them at least reviewer permissions before hand so they can view the calendar.

Thanks everyone. I am on the road, but will assume it works and will verify it by borrowing someone's computer when I return. Thanks for the great feedback.
