I use the following code to export our resource object's calendar items to a html file, which is then viewable by everyone.

This is not the original page I pulled my scripts from but it is the same author. It looks like he did not post his .css templates on this site.  Let me know if you think this might work for you, and i can pack up the files I originally downloaded and send them to you.

It was developed for exchange 5.5 but still works on exchange 2003.

Fingo,
You'll have to forgive me.  I know HTML, CSS and JavaScript.  I am trying to learn VB (I think that's what this is...), but for all intenstive purposes, I know nothing.
How do I take the script in the link and convert it to a file I can use?

Where/How do I enter the path of the HTML file to be exported?
Where/How do I enter the name of the resource I am proxying?

Forgive my newbie questions...

This might be easier if you see the finalized files and just edit what you need.

Place WebCalendarHTML.VBS and Settings.txt on your exchange server. Edit settings.txt accordingly to your environment.  The user needs full mailbox rights to the resources you will be exporting.

FSUsername is user/pass of user who has rights to run the .vbs on the exchange server.  The user/pass in the MAILBOX line are users who has full access to those individual mailboxes.

Please the remaining files into the shared directories you specified in the settings.txt file.

When you run the .vbs file it will create a <resource name>.html file in the shared folder.  You will then also need to modify the index.html to display your resources.  About six lines to edit and you should be all up and running.
