We are running Outlook 2003 with Exchange 2003 server.  I have one user whose calendar shows items in the Day/Week/Month view, but if you change it to events, appointments, etc. there is nothing there.  It also does not show up on his Outlook today screen.  If he tries to add an appointment it gives him the following error:  The item could not be saved to this folder.  The folder has been deleted or moved or you do not have permission.  Do you want to save a copy in the default folder?  If he answers yes to this - it then gives him the message: The operation failed.  Can someone help me get this resolved without losing all the appointments in his calendar?  Thanks.

Cevans1a - the Calendar in OWA is blank.

Mkris9 - I did try to create a new outlook profile.  Still had the same issue.  I have also run the outlook.exe /cleanviews and it did not make a difference.

look for related events on the exchange server. It could also be corrupted mailbox.
Export mailbox, Create a new mailbox and import all the items back in if necessary.

Thank you for that suggestion.  I exported the data using the exmerge.  I did NOT delete the mailbox... then I imported it back in and the calendar was blank.  I had already exported the calendar in Outlook earlier to a pst file.  I imported that pst file back in and that did it.  All his calendar entries populated.  It appears that maybe the mailbox default folder for the Calendar was moved or deleted?  
Problem is resolved - thank you!
