We want to create Room mailboxes for 12 conference rooms.  We already have a web base system that contains the meetings already setup but it is not an automatic system and it still requires some manual input.  We want  to create the room mailbox for these conference rooms but the problem is importing the current meetings already setup in the web base system.  We can have our DBA's to export this information into an excel spreadsheet but the problem is how to import these into the Room mailbox calender's.

If you can have your DBA's export this to a CSV it is then pretty easy to import the info into the calendar. Do the following steps...

You need to have full access permissions on the mailbox to update the calendar this way...
- Open the CSV copy all fo the data
- Open Outlook
- Click the Calendar Tab
- Add the Room Mailboxes to your Outlook session
- Click the View Tab
- Click Change View button
- Change the View to "LIST" view
- Paste all of your records from the CSV file into the List view area

Hope this helps!

Use Outlook's built-in import capability to pull the data in.  In order to give more specific instructions I need to know what version of Outlook you're using.
