Try this

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/aa210899(v=office.11).aspx

Using the AppointmentItem Object
Use the CreateItem method to create an AppointmentItem object that represents a new appointment.
The following Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example returns a new appointment.
Set myOlApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set myItem = myOlApp.CreateItem(olAppointmentItem)
            
Use Items (index), where index is the index number of an appointment or a value used to match the default property of an appointment, to return a single AppointmentItem object from a Calendar folder.
You can also return an AppointmentItem object from a MeetingItem object by using the GetAssociatedAppointment method.
Remarks
If a program tries to reference any type of recipient information by using the Outlook object model, a dialog box is displayed that asks you to confirm access to this information. You can allow access to the Address Book or recipient information for up to ten minutes after you receive the dialog box. This allows features, such as mobile device synchronization, to be completed.
You receive the confirmation dialog box when a solution tries to programmatically access the following properties of the AppointmentItem object:
