find first available appointment by examining several calendars

From Access or Outlook VBA, I want to check 1-4 people's Calendars to find out who has a 60 minute availability next. I want to report back what that date is.

I was thinking I would loop through days, one a time,
for each date, check each user's calendar to see if there is any availability
Once I find one, exit the loop and report the user + date back in a msgbox.

Anyone have any experience about how to go about doing this? I.e., does Outlook expose objects that can do this, what are they, etc.

Thanks.

I'm using Outlook 2007, Access 2007 and Exchange Server 2007.

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