Hello for some reason MS Office Outlook 2003 will not let me open my
Calender. It tell me that MS Office Outlook has encounted a problem and need
to close. Then it will close and re-open. I can open all other tab ok with
no problem. Here are some thing I have tried from the net and Microsoft. But
none work can anyone help!!!!

1. I got a solution and my issue was resolved. Firstly close outlook and
make sure you go into task manager, processes tab and end the process
outlook.exe file as well if there is one. Then Follow the path in your
computer

C:\Documents and Settings\(username)\Local Settings\Application
Data\Microsoft\Outlook

In the outlook folder, rename all the files with ext. .ost and then start
the outlook 2003 again.



2. Do an advanced search for *.ost in all files & folders, including system
folders. Close outlook2003, rename or delete the *.ost file found, reopen
Outlook2003


1.. Clear the forms cache. Tools>Options>Other>Advanced Options>Custom
Forms>Manage Forms>Clear Cache.


1. FOUND A FIX!!!!

close outlook

Start-> Search

Look for FRMCACHE.DAT file. (look in hidden)

Delete it from the find window.
Restart Outlook.

When you restart Outlook it will rebuild a fresh new
FRMCACHE.DAT file.

Outlook uses forms for everything. Sometimes these
get corrupt and need to be rebuilt.

edit* This was a problem with recurring calendar items... but may help if
any Items display the error: "Can't open this item. The Object could not be
found."

A .ost file is an offline cache of your Exchange mailbox. This does not
exist if you are not on Exchange. If you are on Exchange, then your IT
staff should be able to help you.

Ok i want to make sure I understand you right. You are say that the .ost
will not be on the local machine. But on the Exchange Mail Server under the
my user name?

No, the .ost file is on your local machine, thus allowing you to view your
mailbox when offline from the Exchange server.
