We are using Outlook 2000 with Exchange 2K.  Users have complained about the steps need to book resource.  They would either like to just invite the resource(in which case the resource does not automatically reply) or enter something into the location field and have it add the entry as a resource(it would have to be resolved first).  I have tried to use a custom form but I have not had much luck.  Any suggestions?

They go to schedule then click on invite others from the address book.  The location button seems like it should do what they want but it is not linked to the resources as expected.

How is the resource setup?  Is the resource a normal recipient?

The resource is setup as MS suggests with Automatically accept enabled.  The problem is not with the calendar but with the selection of it as a resource.  It seems to me that the location field should trigger the resource selection (not just selecting a resource setting the location).  Most our users type in the names of the meeting attendees in the To field rather than selecting from a list.  If you add the resource in the To field it is added as a required recipient not a resource.

But its a valid recipient.  So if you're putting it in the to field then its going to be seen as a valid recipient.  There's no way to really change that behavior.  

I think you could setup a custom form and move items from the location field to the resource field and then do a resolve.

FYI, I found a way of accomplishing this by linking the location field to an attendee with a type of resource.
Here is the code I used
               Item.MeetingStatus=1
               Set myRecipient = Item.Recipients.Add (Item.Location)
               myRecipient.Type = 3
'               Item.Resources = Item.Location
               Item.Recipients.ResolveAll
