no, but if i get the instructions I can pass them on to IT. If they don't know something off the top of their head, they say "it's impossible".

Really depends on how the calendar was shared.
Was this calendar added as an aditional mailbox?

If it was you need to go into your accoutn setting, more settings, Under the Advanced Tab look for additional mailboxes
If its listed here remove it here

If we are talking about a calendar that was simply opened in you outlook for you to view, if you go into your calendar
On the left do you see the "shared calendar" still? Is this what you are talking about?

If so, you shoudl see My Calendars, Other People Calendars.
You will need to make your you have MY Calendar checked
before you can delete the additional calendar.


Another thing to look for is, open outlook
Press CTRL+6 on your keyboard
You should see your folders on the left expand

Do you see the Calendar folders?
If you do are there any sub calendars?
If there is expand the calendar Then delete the desired sub calendar


If all else fails, supply a screen shot of the calendar in question

Alright, allow me to present additional detail. The company I work for was on SharePoint 2007. There was a Public Calendar in Public folders that anyone could freely add or remove from Outlook. It was NOT a SharePoint web-based calendar. We recently upgraded to SharePoint 2010. As a part of that, IT copied the existing Outlook Public calendar to SharePoint web based. They disabled further edits to the old Public Calendar, forcing everyone to connect the new web based calendar to their Outlook and start using that. In the aftermath, the option to delete or remove the old calendar is grayed out.

Going by what you have described above
Sounds like the now redundant Exchange Public Calendar, is all that needs to be removed

This needs to be done through the Exchange Manager, and cannot be done by individual users

If for any reason this calendar needs to be referenced, should know theres no going back after its been removed from Excahnge Public Folders

So the same problem I am having with the delete option grayed out for that old calendar should be observable on all user's machines?
