Exchange/Outlook - Cancelled meetings still showing in calenders

Hi Experts,

We running exchange 2003 at a server level and all user's running outlook 2007 SP2, on WinXP SP2 fully patched workstations,  we have several meeting rooms setup as resources to allow staff to book meetings/appointments in them, the problem however is on occasions when user's cancels meetings, the appointment/meeting entry is not removed from the resources room calender, but rather shows as cancelled, is there a way to remove the cancelled meeting entry from the resource calender, so that staff can see the room as free during that particular time as opposed to see'ing the cancelled meeting entry in the calender - makes sense

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

had similar problem in like environment.  I am not 100% sure about this, but I believe that we had to delete appointment from host / user who originally created it.  And it took a few minutes to update our calendar.
