In my previous article, I have taught you how to recover your iPhone deleted calendars and transfer the recovered calendars to your computer with iFonebox. However, most people wrote to us whether there is a method to transfer all those recovered calendars from the computer to their iPhone or iPad. Finally, I have found a method to help all of you who want to transfer calendars from computer to your iOS devices. Here we go.
If you have a CSV file for your calendars on the computer, it is much convenient to transfer calendars from your computer to iPhone or iPad. Just two steps, firstly, import your CSV file to the Outlook, and next, transfer the calendars in Outlook with iTunes to your iPhone. Quite simple, right?
Import CSV file to Outlook
Take Outlook 2007 for example. To import contacts in to Outlook 2007, make sure the contacts file is in .csv file format.
- In Outlook 2007, choose File> Import and Export.
- On the Import and Export Wizard window, choose Import from another program or file and click Next.
- Select Comma Separated Values (DOS) and click Next.
- Browse to the location where you saved the .csv file, select it, select the option of your choice for handling duplicates and click Next.
- Select the Contacts folder as the destination and click Next.
- Click Finish to complete the process.
Transfer Outlook calendars to iOS devices with iTunes
Next, what you need to do is to launch iTunes and then, connect your iPhone or iPad to the computer with USB cable. Click your device and enter in the detailed information of your device. Just click the Inf tab and you will see Calendar tab. Select both to sync from outlook and click Apply. Just do as it demands and you will sync the calendars from your computer to iPhone.
What if you don’t have a CSV file for your calendar?
If you have a HTML file for your calendars, firstly you can convert your HTML file to CSV file. Here are steps to convert:
- Point your browser to the data page you want to read.
- View the HTML SOURCE CODE of the page.
- Highlight the source code of the table you want to copy.
It will be between <table> and </table> tags
- Copy the source code (control – insert in Windows)
(You can select more than one table at a time, but you might get strange results. You can also select text outside a table, but the results will again be unpredictable.)
- Paste the source code of the table into the left-hand window of the H2Text applet
(Shift – insert in Windows)
- Click on the translate button
- The CSV (comma separated values) version of the table will show up in the right hand box.
- Copy this data, and paste it into your spreadsheet.
- This version should paste into your spreadsheet nicely.
After converting successfully, now you can just follow the above steps to transfer CSV file to Outlook and then use iTunes to finish the whole process.
