Defauly Calendar shown in Outlook 2010

I have a user with 2 Exchange accounts set up in Outlook 2010.

The calendar shown on the right (in the (To-Do bar) is the "wrong" one. When he clicks on a date, it will open up the calender he wants as his primary.

How can I change the default calendar shown (and thus the upcoming appointments below it) to the other calender?

I have already tried setting the appropriate Exchange account as "default" within Account Settings.

    You need to change the default calendar by changing the default personal folder file (PST).
    Click on file->Data file management->Click on the personal folder that has the calendar you need to show as default-> Set it as default.

    Normally this could help you out....

    Or you can just try reconfigure outlook....

    You can use the "right" one as default from there and have a restart of Outlook...

    However, have you tried reconfiguring!!!

    I had to split the accounts up into seperate profiles in the end.
