Refreshing the Entire Schedule Plus Calendar File

If the Outlook Import And Export Wizard fails to import your Schedule PlusSCD file or imports only a portion of the file, the calendar file may bedamaged.

Follow these steps to export your Schedule Plus calendar date,appointments, to do list, contact list, and events:
  1. On the Schedule Plus File menu, point to Export, and then click Schedule+ Interchange to open the Export Schedule+ Interchange dialog box.
  2. In the File Name box, type a name for the destination file. The file name should end with a SC2 extension.
  3. Under Export, click to select the Schedule Plus item you want to export. The default is to export all items.
Follow these steps to create a new, empty calendar file:

  2. Rename all files on your computer that have a SCD extension (CAL extension for Schedule Plus, version 1.0), giving them a new extension. This will mask these calendar files from Schedule Plus.

  2. In the Import Schedule+ Interchange dialog box, select your SC2 file and click OK to import.

Refreshing a Portion of the Schedule Plus Calendar File

If the steps for refreshing the Schedule Plus Calendar File fail, and yoususpect that a particular calendar item is causing the problem, you canexport and create a new SCD or CAL file containing only one item. If thatSCD or CAL file imports into Outlook, try creating a new SCD or CAL filewith the next Schedule Plus Calendar item and import into Outlook. Thisprocedure requires the creation of a different SC2 file for each Calendaritem, the creation of a new SCD or CAL file for each Calendar item, and theimporting of each SCD or CAL file into Outlook. In this manner, you canisolate the offending part of your Schedule Plus file.
