I have VSS3.0 and Moss 2007 running fine so far. I also have office

I can connect a SharePoint calendar to outlook and entries can be made
in either one as advertized.

Question: When I connect a SharePoint Calendar to Outlook in the
regular manner - will everyone on the network who has Outlook be able
to see the SharePoint Calendar? Or is the Calendar created only in MY

Of that is the case, is there a way to get everyone on Outlook to see
the Calendar I linked from SharePoint to Outlook without doing any
special code?

Configuration for Outlook is specific to each person. If you connect to a
SharePoint Calendar (events list) from your copy of Outlook it will sync any
changes you make back to SharePoint. Those changes will be visible in
SharePoint. But for other users to see the changes in Outlook they would also
have to walk through the steps to connect their Outlook to the SharePoint
Calendar (events list) that you connected to.

If the calendar  is a SharePoint list, then everyone that has access to it in the
browser will be allowed to open it in Outlook just like you did. Any changes
made by anyone in the browser or in Outlook will be visible to all.

The correct answer appears to be that when you create a SharePoint
Calendar to Outlook, it is put in your personal calendar  folder.
Everyone who wants to see the SharePoint calendar in Outlook must
also go to SharePoint and link the Caledar there to Outlook, which
puts the SharePoint calendar into their Outlook folder.
