Share Outlook Calendar across 2 home computers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there such a thing as a simple question?

    I have two home computers running Windows XP Pro SP2 linked via a hub for file sharing.  Both are running an independant version of Outlook 2003.  We would like to have a family calendar that we both share and are able to view and update.  We are not running Exchange.   Is there any way for this to be setup?

    Any help gratefully received.

  • There is no way to share a calander as outlook uses pst files to store the entire info. A pst file can only be open by one instance of Outlook at a time. There are lot of third party software that u can find on the net  that lets u do the same but from outlook there is no way of sharing a pst file b/w 2 computers.

    I had a look for external software and selected Office Calendar at http://www.officecalendar.com/officemarket.asp

    This sorts the problem.
