How to copy entries from archived calendar to main calendar

by hairymon / September 20, 2004 10:38 PM PDT

I have Outlook 2000.

I accidentally had it auto-archive all my calendar entries over 6 months old and delete them from my main calendar. I want to put those entries back into my main calendar.

I have not found a way to do this. Any help would be extremely appreciated, thanks.

I appreciate the Web link, but the things it found seem to tell me how to auto-archive, or how to see the calendar that was archived. I already know this.

What I want to do is get the entries from the archived calendar back into my main calendar. For example, if I wanted my archived emails back, I would just highlight and move them from the corresponding archived folder back into my Inbox or wherever. But Calendar entries don't seem to work that way.

So if you know a way I appreciate it, thanks, and sorry if there was any misunderstanding.

Take keen notice of what PST file that calendar archive is in. From the help...

"Import archived items into their original folders
In order for this procedure to work, you must have an archive file available. Learn how to archive or delete old items.

On the File menu, click Import and Export, and then follow the instructions in the Import and Export Wizard for importing a personal folder file (.pst).
Note On the Import Personal Folders page of the Import and Export Wizard, be sure to click Import items into the same folder in, and then click the appropriate set of folders."

Microsoft didn't supply a pick and choose method. Read more at

Thanks, that should be helpful. I haven't looked too hard in yet, but I have in the past and I know it's a very very useful site for these kind of things. Thanks very much!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
