I ham able to put an entry on my Zimbra Calendar (that I use at office) and then it syncs to my iPad calendar. This is not a problem. However, I cannot do the reverse. That is to make the initial entry on iPad calendar and then to see it on my Zimbra calendar. Can anyone help me out.

At least we need to know your Zimbra Version (7, 8 , OpenSource, Network) and how you connect every device (Activesync, MAPI, CalDAV).

This is what i see as the version (i clicked help/about to get this)

Zimbra 7.2.6_GA_2926 (build 20131203115953)
I am not familiar with your other question " how you connect every device (Activesync, MAPI, CalDAV)"

Not sure how to answer that

Paolo is asking what you did to setup your calendar on the iPad in the first place. Typically when you add the account, you'll be prompted as to whether you're adding an Exchange connected calendar (which is actually ActiveSync), or if you're adding it via a CalDav connection. Both methods should permit 2-way sync of appointment information, but knowing which might help to narrow the problem. For example, I've found that ActiveSync connections on my iPad seem register changes faster than CalDav.

I think it will be much easier and better if could be guided to start new from scratch. Please try to assist me -step by step. What I require is this. I have already made entries in my ipad Os7.1 calendar for the whole of 2014. How can I sync them to my Zimbra calendar which i use at work.

Depends on what you mean by "my ipad OS7.1 calendar". Is this a calendar running in iCloud or some other service? You can find this out by going to Settings App > Mail, Contacts, Calendars and looking at the list of Accounts. Once you know where the calendar data is living, you'll need to figure out how to mount that data in Zimbra. For 2-way sync, this is typically done via CalDav, though that obviously requires that the service you're using supports CalDav. If the service only support ICal (ICS), then you'll be able to view your calendar in Zimbra, but you won't be able to edit it. In both cases, you can add the external calendar by right-clicking the Calendar heading in Zimbra and choosing Add External Calendar. Hope this helps.
