I need to add an appointment to a specific calendar in Outlook 2007 using VBA from MS Access 2007. The code below works fine for the default calendar. I have managed to programatically add a calender, i now need to able to place an appointment in the newly created calendar
Dim objNS As NameSpace
Dim objFolder As Outlook.Folder
 Dim objItem As Outlook.AppointmentItem
 Set objNS = Outlook.GetNamespace("MAPI")
 Set objFolder = obNS.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderCalendar)
       ' In here need to change to a sub folder of the default called 'Room Booking'
Set objItem = Outlook.CreateItem(olAppointmentItem)
              With objItem
             ........... add item fields here

The way I do this is by the names of the folders

set up a few folder objects

Dim objFolder1 As Outlook.MAPIFolder
Dim objFolder2 As Outlook.MAPIFolder
Dim objFolder3 As Outlook.MAPIFolder

and then you need the names of them, I am working on a non english computer so I am not sure of the inbox name I think it might be inbox and then the users name.

Then the Folder calendar and then if that has sub folders get the named one called Room Booking.

objFolder3 you can then use.

Set objFolder1 = objNS.Folders("YourInboxName")
Set objFolder2 = objFolder1.Folders("Calendar")
Set objFolder3 = objFolder2.Folders("Room Booking")

Many thanks, this certainly assigns the names to the objects but when you go add an appointment it still adds it to the default calendar. How does one ensure the folder you select is the one to use for the new appoinments?

mmmmm are you sure

If Not objFolder3 Is Nothing Then
            Set objAppt = objFolder3.Items.Add
            If Not objAppt Is Nothing Then
                With objAppt
                    .MeetingStatus = olMeeting
                    .Subject = "Loser Conference"
                    .Start = "07/07/2009 17:00:00"
                    .Body = "You got First Place"
                    .Duration = 1400
                    .Location = "France Paris"
                    .ReminderMinutesBeforeStart = 60
                    .BusyStatus = olTentative
                    '.RequiredAttendees = "" 'put your email address here and it will send a request to you too
                    .Display
                End With
            End If
        End If
