I have a different problem. Everything is synching but appt times are being changed to 4 hours earlier. It seems like a time zone problem but I followed the earlier suggestion to turn off time zone support. Any thoughts?
5 hours? I am in boston. what time zone are you in? at least we might be able to figure out if there is some reference time zone to which we are each being converted. equally likely, there is some bug in the system which you and I are lucky enough to have infecting our software....Got the same problem except I'm about 5 hrs off!
thank you! You have given me back the iPhone i could only dream about! Alls well that ends well!Just figured my problem out! Even though I did this before, I tried it again. If anyone is noticing that their calendars are syncing a few hours off of outlook (for me it was 5), do this:
Make sure your outlook and computer time zones are correct. Actually change the time zone and then change it back to the correct one. Now do the same thing on your iPhone. For me, even though the time was correct (I have date and time set automatically on) I had to turn time zone support off and then on again. When I did, "Houston" came on by itself (where I live). Next time I sync'd it was all perfect!
I have the same problem! I checked add-in and com add-in etc. Basically Iid everything I could find on the internet. But I haven't resolved the issue yet. Right now, I cut and paste an event that syncs and modify it instead of creating a whole new event. This seems to be working....Hi All
has anyone syncing to outlook 2007 notice that not all events sync with the iPhone calendar.
I don't know why this would happen, but only 1/3 of the evnts in outlook seemed to sync to the iPhone
very frustrating .... that was the one feature on the treo that worked well...
can anyone help?
Did you look under the Microsoft Office category in Add/Remove? I don't recall exactly but I think it was something like Microsoft Office Live Maps...I cant seem to find Live Maps for Outlook in my programs Add/Remove list...might it be called something else?
It works just great using this fix!@ iTunes should look into doing what you guys do. and by the way i'm a Geeksquad Agent!@ and first time i read this and tried ......and i will use again.My calendar works! I did the following:
- Uninstall iTunes, QuickTime, Apple Mobile Sync, Live Maps for Outlook from the Add/Install Programs control panel
- Install latest iTunes
- Run iTunes and sync
Still got some missing appointments but 90% of them are there!
Thanks for all the suggestions.
I checked the Trust Center and I have 3 inactive add-ins.I'm running Outlook 2007 with XP. Only a handful of my events and appointments are showing up on the iPhone. It's a minor bug but annoying.
In Outlook, I verified that in Trust Center>Add-ins both the iPhone plugins are active. I've restarted as well.
Otherwise I'm very happy with the iPhone (and glad to ditch my ugly old Treo).
I've tried every suggestion that posters, Apple, and Microsoft has suggested to sync my Outlook 2007 Calendar to my iPhone but nothing worked. Thanks to one dedicated Microsoft employee that would not let this issue die until it was solved, I FINALLY was able to sync my Outlook 2007 Calendar to my iPhone. It was so easy it's incredible. I hope that it works for others that are having the same problem Good luck.
Locate the scanpst.exe file on your PC, then click on it to execute the file.
Type the path and file name of the .pst files
Note: The .PST files are always located in the C:\Documents and Settings\<user account>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\
(<user account> is the name of your windows account, C: is the system partition where the Operation System locate.)
NOTE: Enable the box of " Make backup of scanned file before repairing " if the PST file need to repair.
Then try to sync the iPhone again. Hopefully this works for you as well as it worked for me.
Thanks to everyone for some great posts and brainstorming. I'm glad to see that some people have resolved the issue with Outlook 2007 and their iPhone. I've tried everything mentioned in this forum for my Outlook 2007 (scanpst, IPM.Appointment , etc), none of which have worked. Here is what finally worked and this is what I did to get there. From my conclusion the problem (for me) was a Microsoft Outlook issue.
Windows XP SP 3
I’ve used Outlook for years and have gone through upgrades as far back as Office 2000. Every time I upgrade, as part of the upgrade process, Outlook converts the previous PST file for me. According to this solution, it may be a better idea to export info and then bring it back in to an empty file to best insure no damage to the records – Recurring events in old files seemed to be the issue here (birthdays, anniversaries, etc). Contacts were syncing fine, but Appointments to and from the iPhone were not. From what I’ve read, files from older versions of Outlook retained properties not compatible with Outlook 2007 or the iPhone for that matter, but are readable by Outlook 2007 and look the same as all other records within the program.
1. Export your Outlook 2007 calendar data “to a file” for backup. Check the file size to make sure you collected the data to be sure. YOU NEED TO EXPORT AS A WINDOWS TAB FILE. – But I would also save as a PST for backup purposes. Only IMPORT THE TAB FILE IN THIS PROCESS.
2. From within a list view, select all your data and then delete all of the calendar data so there are no more events. This is a pain, because you will most likely have to cancel some events, notifying attendees (oh well @ this point no gonna care)
3. Now that you have a blank calendar, create an appointment on your iPhone and one in Outlook and then sync.
Test to see if it works. This worked for me. If it does, you are on your way there.
4. Now import the TAB file with all your appointments. This should do it. NOTE: When I imported the TAB file it worked,, but I tried importing the PST backup I made (even after running SCANPST) and I was back to the same problem
Hope this works for you!
Thanks for everyone’s contribution. This only took me ALL DAY! I hope this helps!
