Import Calendar and Contacts from "On My Computer" Folder to Exchange Calendar Folder Outlook 2011 (Mac)

Set up a new Exchange 2010 account for a client. Installed Office 2011 (Mac) and attached it to the new, empty, Exchange account. Then, imported pst from Outlook 2010 (Windows POP account, not Exchange). All of the imported data goes to folders called "On My Computer." In the mail section those folders can easily be dragged and dropped into the Exchange account, but how do you do it for the calendar and contacts?

I saw some messages about it has to be done one-by-one for the appointments... So it may be a bug or some crazy "Microsoft Feature" :-(
I haven't tested it, but couldn't believe it should not be possible, but looks like still it is (not possible).
Yes - in Windows it is easy..
The contacts though should work - but doesn't matter if you do it in Windows Outlook, anyway...

also drag those.
Select all contacts with Command-A...
To choose all from calendar: change view to "active appointments"? or View=>List...

Tried that and it doesn't work. I can select the appointments and drag them but get a big red number (indicating the number of appointments) when trying to drop into the Exchange calendar. Do you think this may be a bug with Outlook 2011? I might have to do it through Outlook on Windows which is pretty inconvenient but will work.

use help - report to Microsoft and wait for next version ;-)

OK, some other possibilities:

Use 'send my calender via email' in PC outlook and change the options to All and Full Details and send the resulting ics file to myself on the mac. I then simply dragged the ics file onto the 'standard' calendar and it moved all my items. Then I deleted the 'outlook - PST' calendar on the Mac.
Well, this is for From PC to MAC..

so for from Mac to Mac here is something, works for some, but not for all:

One-by-one works, but there is no way I'm doing that. I tried 2 at a time and it still wouldn't work. Entourage always "seemed" to work well with Exchange even though I had enough problems with it to quit using it a couple of years ago. It looks like Outlook for Mac is not going to be as good as the real thing too. I personally use Linux as my main OS and OWA 2010. Thanks for the help!

Oh, I'm using Outlook 2007 in Windows to sync initially and all is well...I'm not so sure what will happen when I open Outlook 2011.
