I have an iPad2, which seems to get its calendar information from iCal, instead of from the Entourage calendar, which I use and prefer.  How do I eliminate any reference to iCal, which I do nothing to update or even use, and instead synch my iPad2 solely with the Entourage calendar?


iPad 2, iOS 5

    You can't.  Try syncing with MS Exchange to get your calendar.

    I am unsure what you're talking about above.  Do you mean that iPad2 will not synch with my Entourage calendar using iCloud or iTunes directly?  If so, why does the web page seem to indicate you can choose Entourage calendar to do so?  And, how would I use an MS Exchange (server?) to accomplish the synch?

    When you view iPad in your iTunes, you are afforded an opportunity to select a calendar or all calendars.  I use Entourage calendar on my iMac, so that is displayed as one of the options to select.  I've always done that with the unsatisfactory results I've reported.  But I just searched Google for my inability to disconnect iCal or to establish a priority for Entourage calendar when I synched with iPad2 and found the answer.  What I had not done properly was in the Entourage calendar "sync services" preferences.  Once I followed that advice, I re-synched my iPad2 accordingly, and the iPad2 now reflects only Entourage (or principally Entourage, until I confirm it) calendar information.  Problem solved.
