    I did a google on this question, and the only comments I found were from 2007. A lot has changed since then.

    Can anyone please advise how to merge all these (5) calendars into a single calendar ? I don't need all these calendars, and they just confuse things.:confused:

    Thanks for your help.

    Enable iCloud on your devices. Make sure you aren't using Google Sync. And make sure your Calendar isn't setup in iTunes to sync. Once I did that, my duplicates entries went away.

    You might try (before setting up iCloud) doing File>Export and exporting the calendars. Then pick one to be the master, then File>Import. Then delete the other ones. Then enable iCloud and it will upload everything and sync from now on.

    I was able to export all of the calendars to a folder on my desktop, then delete the calendars under iCal. Then I created a new calendar, named it, and imported all of the exports (one at a time) back from the folder on my desktop to the new calendar I had created under iCal.

    That worked. :D

    Thanks for your comments and suggestions.
