FAQ: I have been using the Calendar part of Outlook for some time. Can I transfer those items to the new calendar?

When you switch from using Outlook without Exchange to using Outlook with Exchange, you also go from saving items in Outlook's Personal Folders to saving current items in your 'Mailbox' on the Exchange server. If you've been using Outlook for calendaring before the switch to Outlook-Exchange, you may have Calendar items in your Personal Folders Calendar that you want to transfer to your 'Mailbox'/Exchange Calendar.

To do this, follow these steps:

  • In Outlook, when you're in the Calendar you want to transfer items from, click on View...Arrange By...Current View...By Category.
  • From the Edit menu, click on Select All
  • From the Edit menu, click on Copy to Folder
  • Select the Calendar you want to copy to (this should be the item labelled 'Calendar' under 'Mailbox - Last, First')
  • copy to folder.JPG

  • Click OK

If the Calendar view is still by Category, go to View...Arrange by...Current View...Day/Week/Month

You should be able to copy all the existing dates from the Calendar in your Personal Folder without affecting any appointments you've already entered in your new Exchange Calendar.
