(SOLVED) How to merge 2 backup files? 4 Years, 2 Months ago  
Hello all,

I'm a satisfied user of Rainlendar for many years. I have a question though. I am working at 2 pc's at different locations. Both pc's have different items (to do's, appointments) in the rainlendar file. I'd like to merge both files, so i have all my appointments together.

I hope you understand my question. Thanks in advance.

Barry.

You can export your events from the one calendar and import them to the other. You can do that in the Manager dialog (File->Export->iCalendar Format).

Hi Rainy,

Hope you're very cool after this change from 2013 to 2014!!!

Please, I have som backups with all my clients and prospects in about 10 or 12 backup files (iCalendar format)
Well, I am reorganizing things here and changed the categories names and trashed some.
Now, when I try to save this work as another iCalendar format, all "todos" selected, all I cen get is abou 450 "todos" backed up (they are almost 800)!!!!!!!!
What's going on here?
Where are all those?
So, I think that when I changed the categories names and trashed some all todos assigned to them where lost. Or something like that...

Please, I need help!!!!!!!!!

Just another info, IF I expor my "todos" in another format, those "now invisible" "todos" can be found there in Excel.
So, please, how can I bring them back where I can see inside the progam?????
I get an old back up, import it, it shows more then 700 todos imported.
Then, after that, I hit EXPORT and all I can get is about 440 todos exported.
It's something really weird, or what?

Do you have the "Show Original" filter enabled in the Manager? The other filters might not show all the items.

Other reason which might cause the import and export numbers to differ is that Rainlendar combines all the tasks (and events) which have the same identifier but you still see them as separate in the import dialog's count. It's a bit difficult to say without actually seeing the file that you are trying to import...

Thank you for your answer, Rainy.

I think I got some kind of solution here. I hope.
Just got a Backup file (zip format) and imported the "categories" alone.
All other files were denied. Then, all my "todos" are visible again (I guess).

To see the result I tried to export (iCalendar format) then got more them 700 "todos" again (not sure about the exact number it used to be last time befor I change the categories names and trash some of them - only that they were more then 720...)

Oh, BTW, about that accents problem, exporting to EssentialPIM, all I had to do is open the exported iCalendar format in Notopad and save it in Unicode format.

I don't want to sound rude or something like that, but, why don't you use Unicode when exporting in iCalendar files format?
Just curious...
