    I assume that it's possible but I can't figure out how.

    My iPad is synced to out business exchange server via wifi for mail / contacts / calendars but to my home PC vis iTunes for apps and music.

    I'd look to put calendar info into the iPad that I can see on the iPad but that is not copied to the exchange server and therefore can be seen on the network.

    Is it possible?

    Thanks.

    Ok.

    In the top left corner of the calendar app, it has a button labeled "calendars".
    Tap that and a window pops up. For you there should be a calendar labeled like "exchange" or something.
    Then there should be one labeled "on my iPad".


    So, you can check an un-check the calendars, and that changes what you see on the iPad. So, change a date on the exchange, and it syncs to the server. Change a date when exchange is un-checked, and it stays on the iPad and to iTunes.

    Ta.
    I found the calendars with things ticked but I haven't found a combination of ticked an not ticked that doesn't sync. I guess I'll have to play a little longer.

    Thats all I can figure. Just play with it. Or install a calendar app from the app store and keep your calendar separate.

    There doesn't appear to be any way of having an "on my iPad" type calendar. They all seem to have to be linked to an email account in some way so I'll just use one linked to a Gmail account. It will solve the problem but it's not exactly what I wanted.

    The way grey wolf descifbed works, it just sounds like you have your default calendar as your exchange one so all entries are going to that one, change it to the on my iPad calendar and that will solve that problem.

    How?
    I can't see how to change the default

    When I go to the Calenders selection button (top left of screen) I get the following)

    Show all Calenders (toggles all the ticks on or off)

    Gmail
    xxxx@gmail.com (my Gmail account)

    NPS (This is the company account)
    All NPS
    Calendar
    Calendar (Not sure why there are two)

    Other
    Birthdays

    You change the default in settings - mail contacts and calendars - default calendar account.

    Edit - also do you not have a on my iPad calendar listed in the calendar app ? From your description it's not obvious if you do or not.

    When I go to Settings / Mail, Contacts, Calenders and the the Default Calender selection there are only three options;

    Gmail
    NPS
    -Calendar
    -Calendar

    (I'm still not sure why there are two calendars listed under NPS)

    I can find no "On my iPad" option listed anywhere under the Calendar App

    From a practical point of view it's not a major issue. I can just use the Gmail calendar as my personal one. It's just annoying I guess.
