I hope someone can help.  Here is what I'm trying to do:
I have a two shared calendars in the Public Folders one is for student and faculty access and one is only for faculty access.  I also want to publish the student calendar on our web site.

Is there an easy way for the secretaries to choose to add the info to both calendars when the add an event?  They are currently entering it on the faculty calendar and then doing "copy to" if it also belongs on the student calendar.  Maybe this is the easiest way - not sure.

More importantly, is there some place to change the color options when I save the calendar as a web page?  I have to go into Front Page and mess with the style sheets which I don't like to do since it never comes out right in both Netscape and IE.  Seems like there should be some other way to change from that green color that is the default.  Please keep in mind - I don't know much about CSS, just started using them.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give  : )

Copying is certainly an easy and reliable method, as long as people remember to do it. Another would be to add an Exchange Server Event Service script to the folder to do the copying. See http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/sync.htm#exssync for other possibilities.

The colors and other appearance options are controlled by a file named cal.css in the folder for each calendar. This is a Cascading Style Sheet file, and it's fairly self-explanatory. You can edit it in Notepad or FrontPage or Visual Studio. If you set its properties to Read-Only, calendar publishing from Outlook will still work, and the colors will be those you set in cal.css. You'd need to copy your master cal.css file to each new calendar's folder as you publish it. There does not seem to be a place to set a master stylesheet for Outlook to use for each calendar it creates.

Thanks for the info.  I'll work on the style sheets.  Do you have any good resources for learning about Exchange scripts?

There's a page at http://www.slipstick.com/dev/scripting.htm with links to resources and samples for Exchange Server scripts.
