iCal will not Publish to iCloud

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    I just spent a bunch of time with Apple and have solved my similar problem.  A week ago, iCal and my iPhone calendar stopped syncing.  My assortment of iCal calendars were gone from iCloud, so that was the problem (not phone to iCloud).  After much de-selecting and re-selecting, I realized that all my important calendars were type.  I tested the iCloud calendars, and they functioned perfectly.  Apple explained a simple way to migrate the calendars to iCloud:

    Create a new iCloud calendar     File > New Calendar > iCloud

    Name the calender

    Right click the old calendar and choose Export.  Desktop is a good destination.

    Drag the exported calendar from your desktop to the new iCloud calendar

    iCal should show duplicates of all events in the calendar.

    De-select the calendar.  The duplicates will disappear.

    Repeat with all the calendars and abandon this antiquated list.

    Rejoice in your shiny new list of iCloud calendars that shows up everywhere it is supposed to.


    There must be a lot of people out there who still have calendars, so I hope this info reaches them before they all spend time and money with Apple trying to sort it out.
