Transferring the calendar from Sidekick 95 to 98

Transferring the calendar from Sidekick 95 to 98

Transferring the calendar from Sidekick 95 to 98

(OP)
Hi, I'm a Sidekick98 newbie.

I have been running Sidekick 95 for some years and have recently downloaded Sidekick 98. Everything is fine except that when I try to open the Sidekick 95 calendar a lot of the daily entries are missing. I've tried all different ways of saving the 95 userdata but there are still missing entries when I open the 95 calendar in 98.

Can anyone please help.

Kind regards

Dear maplinmist,

Are these recurring appointments?

Hi Jim

No, not recurring appointments. The entries are just day to day things I have done. What the weather was like on that day, if I cut the grass, etc.

I've tried (File - Open Calendar) but only half the entries are retrieved.

I've tried using the backup facility in 95 and then doing a restore in 98 but whatever I do, only half the entries are retrieved.

Once whilst doing a 95 backup I got the message "insufficient memory" and promptly lost all the calendar files and the backup.

I never had a problem running SKW2 for many years.

Kind regards
maplinmist

Dear maplinmist,

Have You applied the Sidekick98 Patch from the website as it stops the ToDos disappearing each day/ each time you restart Sidekick.
Otherwise save the comments in the Appointments section of the Calendar.
