Pretty simple...I just don't know the object model.

Here's the scenario:  

1. I open an appointment in Outlook
2. Within the appointment window that pops up, I click a custom button in my custom toolbar that activates a VBA macro
3. This macro comes up with a pointer to an object representing the OPEN appointment

I am looking for something like this:  

public sub poo()
    Dim objNS As Outlook.NameSpace
    Set objNS = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set colCalendar = _
        objNS.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderCalendar).Items
    Set objNS = Nothing

    dim ai as appointmentitem
    set ai = colcalendar.thisdamnopenitem()
end sub
