2. Select the device in iTunes and click the Info tab.

3. Scroll down to the Advanced section, and under "Replace information on this iPhone" select Calendars.

Thanks Nick. I tried these procedures several times before contacting you. I have now tried them again, but stll only all-day events transfer from computer to phone, not appointments and nothing transfers from phone to Outlook.
Expert:  Nick H. replied 5 years ago.

Note that the 2nd choice is to transfer the calendars from Outlook to iPhone only. If you want sync both way, please uncheck that box.

Have you tried to backup your iphone. Then restore your phone back to factory settings and restore from your backup?
