In Outlook 2010, I have access to another's calendar. When I want to put a new appointment on their calendar, I get a form that wants me to send them an invitation to a meeting. But I don't want to send them anything, I just want to put the date/time/event name on their calendar so they can check it. How can I do this?

The person must add you as a Delegate.
Then you can *open* their calendar, then add the appointment.

Yes, they have added me as a delegate, but when I double click on their calendar to add something to it, I get the form that will send an invitation to a meeting to them, and I don't want to send anything, I just want to add it to their calendar.

I've attached a screen shot of what I'm gettiing.

But this is not enough, ...they must also assign you as and "Editor" or "Author" for their Calendar.

What happens when you simply right-click the date, and select "New Appointment"?
