    Let me set up the info.

    I have 9700/5.0.0.979

    Computer 1 - work laptop
    My email is currently sync to by blackberry through BIS.

    (At one point I physically sync my calendar through DTM 5 but then just stopped doing it. )

    Computer 2 - personal desktop
    I use outlook only for syncing my personal calendar and all my contacts.

    I live and die by blackberry and all my calendar appointments are "personal" (not work related).

    I want to use the multi calendar function. One personal and one work.

    The problem:
    Currently all my calendar items are listed under my work calendar in my blackberry calendar.

    Only items I manually input are under my personal calendar, on my blackberry.

    So here are my questions:

    1.) Can I change all my current "work calendar items" to be listed under my "personal calendar".

    2.) Can I sync 2 different calendars on 2 different computers and not generate any duplicates?

    3.) How does this affect those address book entries that automatically insert into one's calendar (i.e. Birthdays, anniversaries, tasks)?

    thanks in advance,
    Judson

    Ultimately the answer is no - you cannot sync 2 completely separate calendars yet. One of the frustrations we all have. We just have them lumped into one calendar until we get this option

    The OP's issue is basically why I consolidated all my personal and work contacts as well as calendars into Outlook when I started using my BB. Fortunately, I'm able to use a single laptop for work and personal needs, so I just code calendar entries as Personal, Family, Business, or whatever in Outlook so it can sync into my BB but still maintain differentiation.

    Related to the question, though, in the BB Calendar function there's a Menu item for Select Calendar. When I click it I'm shown a page for "Show All Calendars" or I can choose which calendar to show (BBM Groups, Work email calendar, Personal email calendar, etc). I have Show All Calendars selected, and I don't know exactly what this Menu item does, but I've always assumed it implied that multiple calendars could be synced to my BB.
