Outlook Other Calendar .vcs


On the ledt of my Outlook screen I can see "Other Calendars" below my Calendar with check boxes as shown in the image below. If I check these boxes then two other calendars in different colors come up. How do I add these to my main calendar. I though that that was what .vcs is about. Is there a setting to have these files automatically come into my main calendar Calendar image

When you check the boxes for the other calanders it just allows you to view the calander.  Your picture above shows the other two calanders as tabs abover your main calander.  I believe you can change the view so the calanders can be viewed side by side.  You can then drag appointments from one calander and drop them into another calander.

Thanks. Is there a way to have these automatically add to the main calendar?

Just to confirm... from Outlook 2007, you are going to File > Import and Export > selecting Import an iCalendar (.ics) or vCalendar file (.vcs) > Next > choosing the .vcs in question > OK.

If/when prompted Do you want to open this calendar as a new calendar or import its items into your calendar? you are selecting Import, correct? If not, do not choose the Open as New option and instead elect for the Import option.
