My company is investigating whether or not to use Exchange as the sole "Conference Room Scheduler" or purchase a third-party product.  The main question is if we have a conference room that has a projector in it, what are the possiblities of having the projector automatically reserved when someone reserves the conference room?  My initial thought is to create a custom form for meeting requests with code behind the form controlling what resources are matched, etc.  Is this the only way to do it, or is there an easier way?

You could do it that way or you can use an Exchange Event Script or Event Sink (depending on your version of Exchange).

I am using Exchange 5.5 and Outlook 2000...I thought of the Event Script option, but do not have a lot of experiencing working with these.  The "test" event script that I put into place works sometimes, and sometimes it doesn't, so I am not sure if this is a working solution or not...

Then I'd vote for the Exchange Event script.  I've had pretty good luck with them.  Check your event logs for errors in your script.  

www.cdolive.com is a good resource for event scripting stuff.

Doesn't necessarily answer the question, but it does at least point me in a direction! ;)
