I created a calendar to share using Outlook 2003,however, when I shared the
calendar it turn out to share my personal calendar and not the one I created.

More information needed. Are you using Exchange or some other back end? How
did you try to share the created calendar?

I am using the company's Microsoft Exchange server. I work for a University.
I went into calendar help and followed the steps to create a new calendar and
shared it with a coworker. However, when I went to my coworker's outlook I
saw that she was looking at my personal calendar instead of the one I had
created.

When I created the calendar I went to File->New Folder->Typed the name of
Calendar and set it to calendar items and put it in the calendar folder->
Then right-clicked the new calender and set it to share and selected my
coworkers name from the distribution list.

After I saw that my coworker was viewing the wrong calendar I went back to
by calender, and under properties saw that my personal calendar was set to
share. However I did not set it to share.

Clearly, then, you also shared your default calendar.
When I created the calendar I went to File->New Folder->Typed the name of
Calendar and set it to calendar items and put it in the calendar folder->
Then right-clicked the new calender and set it to share and selected my
coworkers name from the distribution list.

Why did you create it as a subfolder of Calendar? Why not make it a folder on
the same level? Sharing is easier that way. Now you have to grant at least
Folder Visible permission to your own Calendar folder and then at least
Reviewer permission to the subfolder.
