When an Outlook 2000 user tries to open the secondary calendar of another user, for which the first user has Editor permissions, the following error message is displayed:

Unable to display the folder.

Microsoft Outlook 98 and Microsoft Outlook 97 users do not experience this problem.


To resolve this problem, obtain Microsoft Office 2000 Service Release 1/1a (SR-1/SR-1a).

To obtain SR-1/SR-1a, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

To work around this problem, use one of the following methods:

  • Set the default permission role to "Reviewer" on the secondary calendar to allow the secondary calendar to function properly.
  • Make the user who wants to open the secondary calendar of another user a member of the Domain Administrators group.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article. This problem was corrected in Microsoft Office 2000 SR-1/SR-1a.
