SHARED CALENDAR - OPERATION FAILED ERROR

One of our users is having a problem trying to "Label" appointments for
one of her assignments. The first time she applies a color label to an
appointment, it works just fine - but the next time she tries to apply
a color label to an appointment, she gets "Operation Failed."
Sometimes the color coding takes anyway, but it's annoying. Closing
Outlook and reopening it will allow her again to add a single label
without error, but then it follows the same pattern.

I hope someone can steer us in the right direction - could it be a
permissions issue somewhere in the assignment's Outlook? (We had a
similar "Operation Failed" problem trying to print the Day View of a
shared calendar and that was due to the Notes and Tasks being selected
on the print layout - but the secretary didn't have specific
permissions to Notes and Tasks.)

Any and all input will be hugely appreciated!!

Thanks!

What permissions does she have on this PF?

I don't know what you mean by PF (sorry) - but she has editor
permissions for his calendar, if that helps.

Sorry, I thought you meant she was using a public folder (PF). You meant
that she is a delegate on this other person's mailbox.

Does the mailbox owner have the same issue with this calendar?
