Export from MS Access to Outlook Calendar

I have Office 2010.  In Access 2010 I have an access form named TimeOff.  I have a command button on this form that when clicked should determine which records have a check in the "Exported" field and then add each record to my Outlook 2010 Calendar.

The code I'm using (see below) are snippets I found and modified.  It doesn't exactly work, but is close.

Can anyone help me with this.


Dim outobj As Outlook.Application
Dim outappt As Outlook.AppointmentItem
Dim dbsCalendarTEST As DAO.Database
Dim rstTimeOff As DAO.Recordset
Dim strSQL As String
Dim intI As Integer

On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
   Set CalendarTEST = CurrentDb
   
   strSQL = "SELECT * FROM TimeOff WHERE Exported = true"
   Set rstTimeOff = CalendarTEST.OpenRecordset(strSQL, dbOpenDynaset)

    DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acFirst
   
        Set outobj = CreateObject("outlook.application")
        Set outappt = outobj.CreateItem(olAppointmentItem)
   
   intI = 1
   With rstTimeOff
      Do Until .EOF
      .Edit

        Set outobj = CreateObject("outlook.application")
        Set outappt = outobj.CreateItem(olAppointmentItem)
        With outappt
            .Start = Me!DateOff
            .Subject = Me!EmpInit
            .Body = Me!Comments
            .Save
        End With
         .Update
         .MoveNext
         intI = intI + 1
      Loop
   End With

   rstTimeOff.Close
   dbsCalendarTEST.Close

   Set rstTimeOff = Nothing
   Set dbsCalendarTEST = Nothing

   Exit Sub

ErrorHandler:
   MsgBox "Error #: " & Err.Number & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & Err.Description

Thanks in advance!

It puts an entry into my calendar for each record checked as Exported, but all entries are the first entry duplicated x number of times.

Then I get and Error #:91 - Object variable or With block variable not set.

duplicated entries:

rstTimeOff is your recordset that holds your data to create each new appointment

Each of these lines should refer to a field in the returned recordset.
 
           .Start = Me!DateOff
            .Subject = Me!EmpInit
            .Body = Me!Comments

something like this:
           .Start = rstTimeOff(0)
            .Subject = rstTimeOff(1)
            .Body = rstTimeOff(2)

your object or variable not set is probably due to this line:

dbsCalendarTEST.Close

you never set dbsCalendarTEST to an object, so you cannot close it.

I think you have a mixture of CalendarTEST and dbsCalendarTEST, but really meant for them to be the same variable.  You probably need to rename one of them or the other.
