Hello K_Lorber...

What version of Office do you have?

Use the search function from the start menu and search your machine for mscal.ocx. Let me know if you find it and where it is located.

Hey Wannabe1

Thanks for getting to my post. I have Office 2000 and I have searched for the specified file

It is located in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office

I tried to open the file but it says its an activeX thing and there is no program to open it.

Thanks

It may just be a corrupt file...let's try replacing it with a good one and see if that does the trick.

Download the attached file and extract it to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office

Try to open the calendar...

Hi sorry it took me a few minutes.

Windows still cannot find a program to open the file with and it shows up as ActiveX again. Is there a download site where I can just re-download the software?

I've still got a few tricks up my sleeve... :whistling:

Open Control Panel and double click on "Add or Remove Programs". Scroll down to your Microsoft Office application and select it. Click the "Change" button. Click on "Repair Office" and run the repair.

Let me know if this helps.

Let's search for another file. You will need to set the search to look in hidden files and folders. We're looking for outcmd.dat. Let me know if you find this file.

To answer a previous question...I know of no place this software can be downloaded... :whistling:

Are we having fun yet? :whistling:

Click Start, point to All Programs, then Accessories, then System Tools. Is there an "Inbox Repair Tool" listed there?
