    That just fixed the problem for me! I ended the Outlook.exe process, and hotsynced....and my calendar finally synced up (again) with my Treo. Thanks!!

    I had this problem too (just for Calendar), after a series of hard resets and restores using Backupman (part of ROM customisation)

    From some trial and error experimentation I was able to identify that the calendar data file on the handheld side had become corrupted (CalendarDB-PDat).

    I had been making multiple backups using BUM, so I just kept bactracking through those, and restoring this individual file to the treo until I got to before the time when the file had been corrupted (as tested by then hotsyncing with conduit set to Handheld overwrites PC).

    after this, no problems. The poster above who solved the problem by first overwriting the Palm with PC file was obviously doing the same thing.


    Treo 650 1.20 LAP.

    Only took three months to resolve my problem.

    Initial problem is that Outlook Calendar synchronization failed. Here is a copy of the log entries indicating failure:

    OK Quick Install
    OK Media
    Outlook Calendar
    - Recovery Sync
    Outlook Calendar synchronization failed

    Outlook Contacts
    - Fast Sync
    OK Outlook Contacts

    Turns out I had a corrupt database on my palm phone (Treo 700p). I loaded an applicaton that fixed my database called dBScan v2.0b. You can find this program at this link or at

    I would select my current database. It then reports the number of records found. The first several times I tried to "Start Scan" it caused my Treo to reset. But it was also reporting that I had 7 Deleted records found. So I chose the option to "Remove all deleted records" and after that it would run fine. It also found that several records that had "Repeat On field in some repeat events not Null" but it said that was OK and typically was caused by some "third-party" apps.

    So the only thing that I did was to use dBScan to remove the 7 deleted records, and then tried the HotSync and now it works!

    Even if you do not use Wireless Sync, its settings may be causing the OLERR message. Here's how to change your settings to work more amicably with Outlook:

    On your Verizon Treo 650, launch the Wireless Sync application.
    Press Menu .
    From the Setup menu, select Connection Settings.
    Select Advanced.
    Add a checkmark to the box for "Enable Other Sync Apps."
    Select OK,

    I want you to know that I spent half the day yesterday on the phone with Verizon Wireless, AND Palm tech support for this prob with my Treo 700p that started after I had to do a hard reset. NONE of them knew this simple fix, even when I myself suggested to them whether it was possible the wireless sync settings were interfering! The Palm rep almost had me deleting and remapping my entire outlook database before I told her I'd call back if I needed to. THANK YOU!!!

    Apply this same concept to the 700P and it solved my problems....
    Thank you, Alfisti, for this post. Such a simple fix. I had been trouble shooting this for hours, and was about to begin moving db files in Outlook when I found this. Thank goodness it worked. What's weird is, I had been successfully syncing my 755p for over a year when the OLERR errors started. I have no idea why the Wirelesssync option would have become unchecked after all this time.
