CSV Import to another person’s calendar


M

MadZoo

Hi,
I am trying to import about 3000 appointments from a CSV file into 6
different colleagues’ calendars who are each on exchange and only using OWA.
I am using Outlook 2007 and have managed to import a CSV file of appointments
into my own exchange calendar (we don’t use pst’s). However if use “open
other users folder†I cannot use the “import and export†option to import the
CSV file to their calendars. Any ideas if it is possible without opening my
colleague’s whole mailbox?

Thanks
Colin

You can't import and export to their calendar. Create a new calendar folder
in Outlook. Import the list into it them move or copy the items to each
calendar.

Note that using Outlook 2007 SP2 might result in Copy: being added to the
subject line - use Move instead, but you'll need to repeat the import for
each calendar.

Can't they be imported directly into the Exchange mailboxes with one of the
Exchange tools?

If he is the Exchange admin, yes. But since he said 'colleagues' not 'users'
he's less likely to be an admin. Even for an admin, for just 6 users its
often easier to do the import and move than to set up a script.

I also have a similar issue. I have an Exchange user who is th
secretary for another Exchange user. Once a month, another servic
generates an .ics file with the boss' clinic schedule. The secretary i
the one that retrieves the .ics file from the service's web site.

Back in Outlook 2003, she could open the boss' calendar and use th
File/Import-Export to bring the appointments from the .ics file into he
boss' calendar. Now, in Outlook 2007 she tries the same method and i
opens her own calendar and places the appointments there.

Is there any other way without creating another calendar as yo
recommended above and moving into the other user's calendar? I don'
understand why it would work in 2003 and now in 2007 the ability to d
this is gone.

Thanks,
Javier

yes, I don't have admin rights on this exchange installation. I basically
imported them to a new folder on my own mailbox then copied and pasted them
to each callendar, it worked and got the job done. However

Just one more question, if I were to use "Move" I can only move to my own
mailbox folders or public folders and not the "other users folder". If i
wanted to move the appointments how would i do it?

Is it posible if the folder you want to move too isn't in the list becuase
its someone elses mailbox folder?
