OUTLOOK 2007 - Copying old calendar to new

Hi,
My company recently migraated our E-mail from one domain (for lack of a better word) to another, per a recent acquisition. The IT Dept. archived my old calendar rather than transfer all items to the new one.

In the attached file, the calendar on the left is the new calendar (mostly blank) and on the right is the old one, which has numerous items, although you see only one for the day I am showing.

Bottom line: Is there a way to copy ALL entries from the old to new calendar without having to do it one-by-one?  If not, what's the best way to do it one-by-one?

Thanks
Steve

OK. I tried this, choosing to export to a comma-separated DOS (CSV) file. But then I got this window, per limited functionality. (I have enlarged it for hopefully easier viewing.)

Is there another format that would work better for me?
Thanks.

Well OK that did not come out very well, here's the text of the warnign:

"The file format you  are exporting does not directly support recurring Outlook appointments or tasks.

Only appointments or tasks that fall within the following date range will be exported. In addition, invidual appoinments will be created for recurring appointments that fall within the date range.

Appointments and tasks (including individual occurrences of recurring appointments or task) that occur outside the date range will not be exported.

Export and create individual occurrences of appointments or tasks that occur between:
7/1/2013 and 11/1/2013."


So I guess It's eihter another export format, but no idea if it will do what I need. Is there a more direct way to do this totally within OUTLOOK?

Thanks again.

OK I exported it, then imported it but need to look further to see if my old tasks, etc. realy did get inserted into the new calendar. I told it both in the EXPORT and IMPORT phases to replace duplicate items...I hope this correct.

I will get back to this later (have to go to lunch now), but this looks promising. Thank you for your help.

This looks good, visually, when I view the calendars side-by-side. That said, want to wait a day or two to be sure that my reminders come up when they should.

Thanks again,
