This is one of those 'do it for the president' type things.

He wants a shortcut on his desktop (WinXP) that will open another users calendar in Outlook (2007).

I've done this before with public calendars, but I can't seem to figure this one out.

Thanks in advance!

Here's a good post of how to do so.  I don't have Outlook 2007 installed currently (running 2003 here) but this should work:
The second link shows you the command switches to use.

create a shortcut that points to the following but the outlook:calendar should be the actual path of the shared calendar.

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\Outlook.exe" /select outlook:calendar

Took me a moment - had to replace the spaces in the shortcut with %20, but worked after that.  Thanks!
