I am having issues with this. I am doing everything you say here to merge, but I get an error box saying that the calendar I want to merge is currently open and being used. I can't get passed that box. Can you provide some info as to what I am doing wrong? Thanks. David

I have imported my own calendar and instead of choosing Do not import duplicates I've chosen replace Duplicates with imported items. Now all my events appear as a copy and I can't amend any of the events as it says that I'm not an organiser!! Can you please help how can I undo it and return my calendar the way it was .... it seems that it merged the existing events and i don't have any rights to amend it although I have originally created it.

Actualy this is NOT a merge! By this way you just copy items from one calender to the outher. All new items in the source calender will NOT appear in the target calender!

Any tips on how to do this for Mac? It just shows up on the My Computer folder but not as the main calendar itself.

Worked great to merge two calendars in Outlook 2013. I'll be changing computers soon, so I may have to go through the same thing all over again.
