    Hi Hugo,

    I’m not quite sure why that has happened. I haven’t come accross that before unfortunately. I would try deleting the items from the SharePoint calendar and then following the steps again.Duplicates could have course been created by someone else using the SharePoint calendar?

    Good luck!

    Hi Wei,

    I’m not aware of any automatic functionality available at present. You can of course send meeting requests to the SharePoint calendar (as well as the personal calendar) to keep them both up-to-date.

    This is exactly what I have been looking for. Very useful and easy to follow.

    Thank your.  That is very useful.  Does outlook 2007 provide any functionality that allows this to be automatic?

    Just had to say thanks so much! I’ve been looking everywhere, including the Microsoft site, on a way to copy recurring appointments from Outlook 2007 to a SharePoint calendar (simple drag and drop didn’t work), and this worked like a charm.

    Hi James,

    Thank you so very much for this! I have been searching high and low and gone through many, many google pages before I found yours which was exactly what I need. Again Thanks!!!!!

    I followed these steps without a problem. All items in the SharePoint Calendar look fine on Outlook up until it synchronizes. After synchronization, I end up with multiple duplicates (5) for each item. Any idea what might cause this and how I can avoid it?
