Why can't Imake new appointments in my calendar?

I have never had a problem setting appointments and meetings in my calendar
until now.

I cannot make a new appointment on my calendar. Right clicking and choosing
new appointment does nothing. Double clicking on a date does nothing. File
"New Appointment" does nothing. A co-worker even sent me a meeting invite
which I accepted and it has not been put into my calendar. I'm not sure what
could be the problem. I am drawing a blank on this one.

I usually suggest that you clean out your forms cache. However, I am
leaning towards the possibility that you have too many items in your
calendar.

To find out the total number of items in your calendar you should
Change the Calendar View to "By Category".

How many appointments are in your calendar?
What version of Outlook/Office do you use?

To clean up the forms cache.

To do so, follow these steps:
1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
2. Click the Other tab, and then click Advanced Options.
3. Click Custom Forms.
4. Click Manage Forms.
5. Click Clear Cache.
6. Close all open windows, and then restart Outlook.

If the above does not work, try the following.

Deleting the Forms Cache File:
The Frmcache.dat file is the primary file to delete. The Frmcache.dat
file serves as an index of the individual forms that have been cached
on the computer. Use the following steps to manually delete the
Frmcache.dat file. In addition, these steps delete all of the cached
forms on your computer, which are stored in subfolders of the
Forms folder.

1.. Quit Outlook.
2.. Search the Hard drive (<F3>) to locate the Frmcache.dat file.
(Be sure to check in HIDDEN files on W2K or WXP.)
3.. Delete all that are found from the FIND window.
4.. Open Outlook.

When you restart Outlook, and use a form, the forms cache
is re-created.
