Outlook, File, Open, Import/Export .  Choose Export to a File, type of file = PST, in the folder list, choose JUST Calendar, export it and name the file backup.PST.

Now copy this to the other computer in the Outlook PST folder and import it, being sure to select Calendar and putting it in the same folder (Calendar) in the new computer

I have backed up the other computer already and now I need to grab that file and
put in the new computer.  So, how do I find that file?

Sorry I didn't make that clearer.

In the first overall step above, you saved the Export as backup.PST.  Where did you save it to?  That is where you get the file to move to the new computer.  

If you cannot Export in the old computer (not working or something), find the PST file, rename the whole thing backup.PST and then move it to the new computer.  Then Import just the Calendar section. Go carefully so you find just what you need to import.

This is a great help.  However, my files are on a NAS that the old computer backed up to and then that disk was formatted so there  is nothing on the old computer.

I can't seem to search on the NAS from Windows Explorer to find the .pst file.  So, do you know where I could look for it?

You would have to search your NAS for the files or else look in the Outlook folder on the old computer if it runs
