Archiving the Calendar

When archiving the calendar in Outlook I know it doesn't 
archive recurring appointments.  My archiving is set to 
clean out items older than 6 months.  I would think that 
this would populate my archive calendar back to April '03, 
instead there is nothing there back to May '03 and 
everything is there but my recurring appointments April 
back to January, then nothing again past December '02.

Archiving works on the modified date.  Since recurring appointments will
have been opened or accessed after your set archive period, they will not be

You can test this by displaying your calendar in a table view (categories
works well for this) and add the Date Modified column.  Then sort by that
column and you will see what is eligible for archiving and what is not.

move to archived folders works, archiving to same archived folders does not work
We are using Outlook 2000 with Exchange 2000. Most of our users work on Terminal Server. Their pst-files are stored on a directory on the file and print server. Some of these users can move mails from their mailbox to their archived folders, but cannot archive to it. They get the message that the pst file cannot be opened. However at that moment they can still browse in their archived folders, move mail to it and so on. For one user I created a new pst file, but the problem staid the same. Does anyone have experience with this? ...

calendar views #2
hello. i'm running outlook 2003 on xp and have a question about the calendar function. from the navigation pane, selecting CALENDAR opens up the calendar view. on the left pane it displays three months of the year stacked atop each other. the problem is this: the view is really stretched out and far-spaced. on my normal monitor running at 102x768 the view is fine but on my widescreen notebook running at 1440x900, the view is stretched. grabbing the edges to narrow the left pane does nothing but hide the calendar; it doesn't shrink the spacing and constrain it. has anyone...

Hi, I'm trying to archive some calendar items and have found the archive settings for the folder. When I run the archive process the items are not moved from the calendar and the folder size is not reduced. I'd appreciate it if someone could tell me how to set this up so that items prior to a point in time can be moved off so that the size of my calendar folder doesn't reach the size limit of my over zealous exchange administrator. Cheers, Darren. Check the Modified date on the items that aren't being archived as you think they should. That's the date Outlook uses to...

Archival Data -- Managing over Time
I am developing a set of data that I will do some research on, and others as well. My plan is to keep the source data in one workbook in a very simple format, and not do any calculations or charts in that workbook. I'll do my charts in other workbooks, and will send the source data workbook to others when they request. The idea is to reduce corruption and accidental modifications to the source data over time. Is this a good plan? Any other comments about how to protect the accuracy and stability of the source data over time? I understand I can essentially make the source file read...

duplicate messages when opening archives / archive inbox emptied?
Outlook appears to be re-downloading all messages (700+) from my hotmail pop3 account. (again...) This only (?) appears to happen on the same days when I try and find an archived email in my inbox. The two times that it has happened today (it has never happened twice on one day before), I was working on a Word document. So I was not deleting emails at the time. (I have seen an errata re to message IDs getting out of sync, but this looks like a different problem.) I do not think that it is my Norton anti-virus. I have disabled the email portion of the software after the fir...

Calendar view question...
We are running Outlook 2002 clients. We want to use a shared calendar to manage our log home show schedules so that each salesperson can see what shows are going on, where and when. Unfortunately, the calendar as it is currently set by default on Outlook does not lend itself very well to what we would like to see. When using the "Month view - which is the one we want to use, the calendar combines Saturday and Sunday into one box, so having multiple items scheduled over a weekend (Fri-Sunday) looks like crap and is very hard to read. Is there a way to bust out those days so that Sat...

Archive an Archive?
LOL, i'm sure this will sound like a dumb idea but ... I want to set up a sorta two tier archive system ... Archive once to keep the PST folders small say keep everything within the last 3 months in the first archive have it accessable say for the last years worth of email, but archive anything older then a year to a new archive folder that can be burned off to a dvd or cd for filing..

Our company wants to change to a periods such as 4-4-5 but does not want to change from a calendar year.

Automatically saving Calendar as web page
Hi Can somebody help me out? What I want to automate my Calendar Save as Web page. Let's say every hour or so. The motivation is that a schedule will publish every 2 hours an update of my calendar on my website. I don't have always access to my computer to manually do the Save as Web page, but I do synchronize from time to time my PPC with my Outlook over the Internet. These changes in Calendar must reflect as well on my website to inform some people when I have meeting opportunities. So far I couldn't see any way to automate it. My guess a macro can do the trick, but my sk...

Archive not archiving
Help please. I am trying to archive email folders. Archive runs, creates an archive folder (and .pst file) but does nothing else. i.e no data is moved to the Archive folders. This is not a case of selected date - a lot of this info is 2 years old. No matter what date I select nothing is moved. Same if i try to archive calendar or other folders.

Creating a Calendar.

archiving auto archive
I have my sent items set to auto archive for mails older than 6 months. Today I want to archive the remaining files in sent items (less than 6 months old). How do I make sure that I end up with 1 merged file, containing the auto-archived and the newer items? If I run archive on the sent items by selecting the auto-archive file I am afraid that it may destroy the old items (I don't want to speculate if MS thought about this or not).
