Hello !

Assign "MakeTentative" to a new button and test if this does the trick.

I did not test it but I'm pretty sure it will work. Just for caution, create a new calendar and test there before testing in your real calendar.

If it does not work, write back with the error and line number.

I can only test it on Monday, if you don't mind waiting.

Sub MakeTentative()

Dim objItem As Object

Set objItem = GetCurrentItem()

If Not TypeOf objItem Is AppointmentItem Then
    MsgBox ("Not an appointment")
    Exit Sub
End If

Set objItem.BusyStatus = 1
objItem.Save

End Sub

Function GetCurrentItem() As Object
Dim objApp As Outlook.Application
Set objApp = Application
On Error Resume Next
Select Case TypeName(objApp.ActiveWindow)
    Case "Explorer"
        Set GetCurrentItem = objApp.ActiveExplorer.Selection.Item(1)
    Case "Inspector"
        Set GetCurrentItem = objApp.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem
    Case Else
End Select
End Function

Open in new window

Great, thank you !

If there's an error with the code, I can still help you. It would be better to have a 100% working solution in case someone with no VBA knowledge needs it later.
