Can't Move, Edit or Delete any Recurring Appointments - Outlook 20

P: n/a
I have a Verizon Palm Treo 755p and use Outlook 2002 on my new HP Pavilion
(Vista 64-bit). When I was syncing on my old XP PC, everything worked fine.
On the Vista PC, when I finally got it to sync (using a Bluetooth USB
adapter), I ended up with recurring appointments that act wierd when I try to
delete, move or edit them. It won't allow any of these changes, saying
various messages:
1) If I try to open the recurring appointment: "Can't open this item. The
object is not valid."
2) If I try to edit a recurring appointment: "Could not save item. Your
changes could not be saved because you don't have permission to modify some
or all of the items in this folder." NOTE: I am a home user and can't find
anywhere to access permissions.
3) If I try to move a recurring appointment: "The item many not have been
deleted correctly. If someone sent you the item, that person's copy of the
item may not be updated. The object is not valid."
4) I am able to create a new recurring appointment, but then if I try to
edit, move, delete the new one, I run into the same problems as above.
5) I can change the VIEW to a list and I can delete a recurring appointment
there.

Because of this, I am afraid to sync with my phone as I don't want to
contaminate the calendar version on my phone. I've tried to research this
everywhere and have not found a solution and I am at my wit's end. I need to
update my phone calendar.

I already tried running the Inbox Repair Tool (scanpst.exe) but it didn't
work. In the Properties box when I right-click on Calendar, there was a
checkmark on 'Automatically generate Microsoft Exchange views.' I unchecked
this box to see if it would make a difference, even though my old XP PC
version has the box checked and works fine.

Please help! I have hundreds of Recurring Appointments and need to be able
to move, edit, or delete them. Why is this happening?
Thank you.
