Deleting Bad Appointments

I have a user that somehow managed to create several thousand appointments on one particular day and I can't figure out how to delete them.

Her ACT would simply lock up within a minute of starting ACT, as soon as it started to process its activities/alarms etc.  I got around the lockup issue, by changing the system date back several years. Then I was able to access preferences and disable pop-ups for alarms/meetings.

She of course needs pop-ups so this is only a temporary solution.

Trying to access that particular date within the calendar, is extremely slow so deleting all 4000+ appointments individually isnt an option.

She also needs to retain all of the other appointments.

I'm hoping there's a way to simply delete all activities on that one particular day.

Thanks for any attention!

Cheers,
Walt

Look them up in the Task List ... set it to just the day in question
Select a batch of them by clicking on the top one and shift-clicking further down
Right-click on Erase Multiple

I think I tried that but couldnt get the select multiple thing to work. I dont think I tried in just day in question tho, I was on month view.

Ill give it a whirl in the a.m..

Thanks - once again

Have to be in the Task List view ... not a calendar view.

Also... make sure you backup first and Check/Reindex after
