Default can't open an outlook .dat attachment

Please Login to Remove!

When I make an apt. in Outlook '07 on my desktop and forward it to my email address so that I will get in on my BB (Torch), I can't open the attachment (the calendar apt.) when it arrives. It arrives in my BB as a .dat attachment. I can open other attachments no problem. It's just this so I can't save it to my calendar on my BB. It syncs fine but I just can't open the apts. on my BB. HELP! Please. Thanks

Maybe this will explain it: How to read and open .DAT files in Windows

You need to add the email address to the meeting request, not forward it, so the request is sent directly, not as an attached file..

That worked! Too bad you have to do the "invite attendees" thing but at least the apt. will get into my BB now. Thank you so much! I really appreciate it. It's driven me crazy for months.
