Hi,

I've got a project which requires me to directly insert an calender item directly into the users outlook calender using .NET.

I've done some research and can see the only way would be webdav...


Does anyone have any recommendations or best ways of doing this? A simular example would be great!

Unfortunately, it has to insert the item via exchange and not the users outlook client.

Thank you,

Nick

You can try this code

(source: http://www.daniweb.com/forums/thread31968.html)
Dim objOutlook As Outlook.Application

objOutlook = New Outlook.Application()

Dim objNS As Outlook.NameSpace = objOutlook.Session
 

'---------Write to Shared calendar-----------------

Dim objFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder = objNS.Folders.Item("Public Folders")

objFolder = objFolder.Folders.Item("All Public Folders")

objFolder = objFolder.Folders.Item("Boss Calendar")
 
 
 

'=========Add appointment to calendar=================

Dim objApp As Outlook.AppointmentItem

objApp = objFolder.Items(Outlook.OlItemType.olAppointmentItem) 
 

With objApp

.Subject = (" Test appointment")

.Location = "Main Office"

.Body = ("test appointment")

.Start = ("1:30pm 11/21/2007")

.Save()

End With
