One of my users has several instances of calendar appointments that he created. He can open them on his Laptop, but he can not open on his Desktop. It appears that he can open some of the ones he created, but not all, on that PC. It also appears that on both PCs, he can open all calendar appointments created by other people. His Administrative Assistant can open all of his calendar appointments from her PC, so the problem is specific to his Desktop.

WinXP SP2
Outlook 2003 (11.8118.8122) SP2 [part of Office 2003 Pro]

Any suggestions?

This sound like a corrupted Outlook, which would entail a reinstall of Office. It's kinda messy but not many other options.
You could check the event viewer in the Application log and see what errors it's holding. I'm not aware of a setting that might cause this, but it's certainly possible.

Get back to me with what you'd like to try.

It's unfortunate and I don't like to re-install but sometimes it's necessary. Let me know how it goes.

FOUND A FIX!!!!

close outlook

Start-> Search

Look for FRMCACHE.DAT file. (look in hidden)

Delete it from the find window.
Restart Outlook.

When you restart Outlook it will rebuild a fresh new
FRMCACHE.DAT file.

Outlook uses forms for everything. Sometimes these
get corrupt and need to be rebuilt.

edit* This was a problem with recurring calendar items... but may help if any Items display the error: "Can't open this item. The Object could not be found."
