How to move recurring appointment/meeting to another calendar in Outlook?

Author: Siluvia Last Modified: 2014-10-22

For moving normal appointment or meeting to another calendar folder, you just need to select the appointment or meeting and then drag it to the specified folder in the Navigation Pane. That’s quite easy for moving the non-recurring appointment or meeting. But when dragging and dropping the series recurring appointment or meeting to another calendar folder in the Navigation pane, a prompt box will pop up to remind you the items cannot be moved. See screenshot below.

This article will show you how to move recurring appointment or meeting to another calendar in Outlook with details.

This copies it; doesn't move it. You then have to delete the original (which is a pain if it's a meeting with others)

When I try to copy a single occasion in a recurring event from one calendar to another, I get the prompt you refer to above and when I click "single occurrence", it simply fails to copy the selected event. Whilst if I ask it to copy the whole series it will do it?? Am I doing something wrong, or is it the programme

Maybe the single occurrence is the first (start) item in the list?... Just an idea though...
