I've had my HTC Incredible S for a couple of weeks now, and have only just succeeded in synchronizing my Exchange 2010 calendar with it. E-mail and contacts have been working like a charm from the beginning.
I kept getting this useless error message:
Synchronization is experiencing problems
I tried many things, including exporting my entire calendar to file, deleting all items in my calendar, and re-importing items, but to no avail. My collegues' calendars synced just fine to my phone. For some reason my calendar just wouldn't sync.
After a lot of messing around I found that if I made a change to every single item in my calendar, e.g. changing the subject of the item, and restoring it afterwards, I was able to sync the entire calendar. Finally!
A VBA macro helped me perform this absurd task in Outlook 2010:
Sub ChangeAllItems() Dim myolApp As Outlook.Application Dim calendar As MAPIFolder Dim aItem As Object Set myolApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application") Set calendar = myolApp.ActiveExplorer.CurrentFolder Dim strTemp As String For Each aItem In calendar.Items strTemp = aItem.Subject 'Make a change to the item (subject) aItem.Subject = strTemp & " " aItem.Save 'Restore subject line aItem.Subject = strTemp aItem.Save Next aItem End Sub
This question serves two purposes; first, to help others who are experiencing the same issue; second, to help me and others understand the reasons for this strange behaviour.
- Has anyone had the same problem, but solved it differently?
- Does anyone know of a reasonable explanation to this behaviour?
I would make this community wiki, but can't find the setting.
