Hi all

I have some VBA code that I have taken from one of the forums that uploads a list of appointments from excel into MS Outlook Calendar, and played around with it to fit my needs.  However, In addition to the properties I have in the code below, I also want to add to colour to the appointment blocks showing in Outlook to distiguish different areas of the business.  Is this possible?  I tried adding 'Label' as a property in the 'appt' block below, but this was not recognised.

Also, is it possible to automate deletion of specified appointments if necessary

Thanks in advance
Sub ScheduleAppts()
Dim ol As New Outlook.Application
Dim ns As Outlook.Namespace
Dim olFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
Dim appt As Outlook.AppointmentItem
Dim myRecipient As Outlook.Recipient
 
NumberofRecipients = Range("L3").Value
 
For i = 2 To NumberofRecipients
 
test = Environ("username")
 
Set ns = ol.GetNamespace("MAPI")
 
Set ol = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set ns = ol.GetNamespace("MAPI")
Set myRecipient = ns.CreateRecipient(test)
myRecipient.Resolve
Set olFolder = ns.GetSharedDefaultFolder(myRecipient, olFolderCalendar)
 
 
Set appt = olFolder.Items.Add
 
iDate = Range("A" & i & "").Value
oDate = Range("B" & i & "").Value + 1
 
With appt
        .Start = iDate
        .End = oDate
        .Subject = Range("C" & i & "").Value
        .BusyStatus = olBusy
        .AllDayEvent = True
        .ReminderMinutesBeforeStart = 120
        .ReminderSet = True
        .Save
        End With
 
Set ol = Nothing
Set ns = Nothing
Set appt = Nothing
Next i
End Sub
