3. Uploading events from your local calendar

If you have previously used Entourage to keep an electronic calendar on your computer, it is likely that it contains events you will need to transfer to the calendar on the Exchange server. In the example below, you can see that on the left, the Calendar that is highlighted is located in the On My Computer folder and therefore on your own machine rather than on the server. Under the highlighted calendar, there is an item Calendar Views. One of the options it offers is All Events. Click on this option.

This should bring up the events that you saw above in week view in the following format. If you have already entered some events in your online calendar as well as in the local Entourage Calendar, ensure On My Computer is selected, as it is below.

List of events in the calendar

Go to the [Edit] menu and click on Select all. This should highlight all events in blue. You can then click on them and, without releasing the click, drag them onto the calendar listed under the name you have given your Exchange account, in the example below OUCS Nexus. The image shows the local events being dragged to the Nexus calendar.

Dragging events to Nexus calendar

If you now open the calendar on the Exchange server - in the image below, this calendar is now highlighted in blue - you will see it has added the events from your local calendar.
