In a pickle with Data Loader and Private Events

I've backed myself into a corner here so I am hoping someone can help!  

 

I was using the Data Loader to mass update some fields on our Events.  I ran into a problem for events that were Private, so I thought "No worries, I'll just mass change them to Private=FALSE, make the changes I need, then mark it back to Private=TRUE."  Well, it let me change from TRUE to FALSE, but would not let me change it back.  ...but I had a plan there too:  I would change the owner to me, then mark Private=TRUE, then change the owner back to the orginal.  It was genius, but alas, it did not work!  Once I marked the Event private, it would not let me change the owner back to the original owner.  So now, the Events ARE private, but they are assigned to me

 

The good news, is that almost all of these events belong to 1 person...the bad news is that that person is the boss!

 

So, does anybody know a way around this little problem?

Hi,

So the catch would be to set then to :-

  • Private = False again
  • Change owner to your boss
  • Then ask for your boss's credentials and using that set them to private 
  • Ask your boss to change the credentials 

Hope this helps...

Thanks (Again) Ispita!  ...I was afraid that was going to be the answer.  That was the only thing I could come up with, but I was hoping I was wrong!
