    Hi  ina047,

    Did anyone else get a solution to this - I had one solution which was cumbersome, but it works (see below) but it doesn't copy and paste any attachments on prior appointments..... I wish Microsoft had an option to convert a recurring appointment to individual appointments!

    Here is the solution I found:

    First, I'd create a new calendar folder (File>New>Folder, with "Calendar Items" in the "folder contains" drop-down), then display my main Calendar folder in the By Category view (View>CurrentView>By Category), right-click the appointment, and drag it to the new

    Calendar folder, choosing Copy when I release the mouse button. 

    Then I'd click File>Import and Export>Export to a file, choosing "Comma separated values" as the output format. When Outlook asks for the folder, select the new calendar folder. Outlook will tell you it can't export a recurring event and ask you to specify a range. Give the starting date of the event, and the ending date after which the event should cease. Finish the wizard.

    The CSV file you created will contain the list of all the individual events generated from the original event, including the exceptions.

    After the export is finished, delete the event from the main Calendar and then click File>Import>Import from another program or file.  Select "Comma separated values", browse to the file you created before, select it, and finish the wizard, specifying your main Calendar as the destination. The events will be added to your calendar as individual items than include all the exceptions.


    I have found this answer from here http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/office/forum/office_2010-outlook/cancel-reoccurring-event-in-the-future-without/d29feb56-0863-4746-8ec8-41d4e59b7936 

    I hope this is helpful for you.
