    Help with the Calendar...multiple accounts/sync

    Here is the scenario. I have 2 calendar files on my desktop computer. Both are in a PST file format.

    Calendar 1 (aka the RS calendar) is the default calendar in Outlook (so I can sync only what I want with Google Calendar). This is my band's calendar and I only put shows/concerts in this calendar.

    Calendar 2 (aka personal calendar) is all my other stuff. Appointments, birthdays, etc.

    Both calendars are set to sync with my storm. Every now and then, I get a hiccup, and the calendars load 2 times. Once under cwr**@****inc.com and under chris.wr**@*********band.com.

    What would be PERFECT is if I could get my RS calendar to sync under chris.wr**@*********band.com and have my personal calendar sync to cwr**@****inc.com.

    Right now, I have ALL appointments under both. So one way or another I am going to have to clean out my calendar and transfer both from my desktop to my storm. But I would like to get this straight if possible ahead of time and do it only once.

    Thank you in advance for all of your help.

    NOW, for the kicker....IF we can get the above to work, is it possible to use Google Sync to sync my Storm calendar OTA ONLY with the chris.wr**@*********band.com calendar?

    Okay I have a suggestion or 2.
    Outlook and google don't really play very nice together..
    Dup events happen when you have 2 events with the same appointment time. G-Sync gets confused by this.

    Or does this only happen after an is upgrade?

    Sorry, guess I didn't clarify where the doubles were. Google and outlook are a-ok. The issue is in the Storm.

    I *believe* the last time this happened was after an upgrade to V7. If I were to look at my Outlook calendar, I would have only one of each appointment, if I look in Google now, still only one, if I look in my Storm, 2 of every. One complete set in cwr**@****inc.com and one complete set in chris.wr**@********band.com.

    Example: July 3rd RS @ The District. This is in my RS Calendar. This is only once in Outlook, only once in Google, and twice in my storm. Once as cwr**@****inc.com and once as chris.wr**@*********band.com

    I hope this helps explain the doubling issue.

    What is your default calendar setting on your BB.

    Options > advance > default settings mine is set to my gmail account.
    Desktop google sync - 2 way sync doesn't work because outlook doesn't work with google multi calendar feature

    This is one of the issues I had at first.

    only issue is after an upgrade then?

    DM advance back up remove both calendar and calendar all

    Confirm calendar is totally empty and resync. Done

    This drove me crazy back when we were getting leaks every week or so
