I know how to do this using the menus but am trying to write an autorun code to perform this monthly.
I have a few users that have shared their calendars with me.
I am looking for some VB macro code  to copy them to my inbox.
Eventually I will export them to Excel and calculate event durations.

Hi, Mswetsky.

What do you mean by "autorun code"?

I am going to create a batch file so I can open MS outlook and automatically run a macro.
Something like the following would run macro2.
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\OUTLOOK.EXE"  /autorun macro2

I would set the batch to run monthly and set up another app to calculate and group the totals following it.

Got it.  Does the script need to delete the calendar if already exists in your mailbox?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

No I would hope that it was dynamic and showed continuing activities.
Do you know If I copy the shared calendar to my inbox if it is a snapshot or a continued shared updated object?

export the shared calendar or does it need to be copied to my inbox first?

It looks like it exports the named calendar.

You don't have to copy the calendar to access or read it though.  You can do both while leaving it where it is.  The only reason I can think of to copy the calendar to your mailbox is if you need access to it while not connected to your mail server.  

The code I provided in the other question will export any calendar.  You just need to know the path to it.  Or, I can modify the code so you can select, i.e. click on, the calendar.  The code would then run against whatever calendar was selected without modification.  That's the best solution if you want to run it against a number of different calendars.

I will be getting the calendars shared from a specific group of people so If I can name them and export them that is great. A 2 for 1 solution.  :-)
