programmatically access items from "View Group Schedules"

I'm trying to write a program to help do scheduling. Outlook 2007's "View Group Schedules" looks ok to my users. But I can't figure out how to access any of this from VBA.

First I want to replicate "View Group Schedules" and create the group schedules if they don't already exist (or check the group's members and update the membership for the group schedule item). I can't find the objects to work with to start on this.

Once I have a group whose schedule I could look at from Outlook, I want to flip the display to the first date that matches my rules. E.g., I need one person + one room available for 60 minutes. Instead of opening the "View Group Schedules" on today, I want to open it on the date that has availability. Again, I can't find the objects, so I'm wondering if any of this functionality is doable from code.

Any suggestions on how I should proceed greatly appreciated.

I got this to work using Outlook's Recipient.FreeBusy, in case anyone else looks for a way to do this.
