Programming Outlook

Hi,
   I'm wondering if Outlook has some kinda of API that allows a Microsoft COM+ or C++ program to manipulate the events in the Calendar? (Such as moving an event from one place to another?) If so, can anyone direct me to a resource specifically for this purpose (not generic Outlook programming)?

Thanks!

oh, like if there is an appointment from 3:00 - 4:00 on Thursday afternoon, and after another event has been scheduled, this event will be moved to Friday afternoon instead, according to some rules...

NGInterface,

There is no special API for that, but then you don't need one.  Outlook's object model will do this without breaking a sweat.

What is Outlook's object model? Is that something like an object that represents Outlook and that I can simply do things like:

object.moveEvent(a, b)?

Thanks.

NGInterface,

Yes, that's it exactly.  Or in this case you don't even have to move, all you have to do is change the starting date/time of the appointment.  You had said "not generic Outlook programming" in your original post, so I assumed you had already heard of Outlook's object model and were looking for something more specific.  If you have Outlook installed on your computer, then open its VB editor and go to help.  All the documentation for the object model is available right there.

The best way to write distributable Outlook code is via an add-in.
