ics file in 2007

History Outlook 2000:
There is a web calendar that has an option to save an appointment from the
web calendar to you Outlook Calendar. When the save or open dialog box
appears, you choose open and the appointment is now entered into your
Outlook 2000 calendar.

Now we've upgraded to 2007
When the save or open dialog box appears, you choose open and you get a new
calendar (side by side with your default calendar). The new calendar
contains the single appointment from the web calendar.

My users are having fits. Is there a way to tell it to place the appointment
in the default calendar rather than creating a new calendar?

Do all .ics files open in the new calendar or only ones from this particular
web application?

Your question helped me find my answer.

After some testing of my own, I believe it's the way the website is
exporting the appointment to an ics file. To verify I am correct, do you
know of a web calendar that has an option to export an appointment that I
can test?
