Hi,

I want to retrive free/busy information for exchange users using VB 6.0 and I don't want to use outlook objects or a html post.

I used to retriev the exchange users the following interogation with ADO:
<LDAP://Server>;(&(&(& (mailnickname=*) (| (&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(|(homeMDB=*)(msExchHomeServerName=*)))(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=contact)) ))));adspath;subtree

and is working, but for free/busy, I have no idea.
Thank you.

Hi, costinu.

I don't believe this is possible using ADO.  You can retrieve Exchange users via ADO/LDAP because that information is stored in Active Directory.  Free and Busy information isn't stored in AD though.  It's stored in a special Exchange folder.  How about using CDO?

Hi, BlueDevilFan,

I agree with you. I found a soulution using Outlook Redemption dll (which I have to buy it).

Anyway your answer is a solution to my question, cannot be done via ADO,
Thanks
