Has anyone had any luck using an Access form to create an iCloud calendar event.

I don't know where to begin if it's even possible.

With the iCloud Control Panel you can sync your iCloud calendar with Outlook. There are many examples that show how to create an Outlook appointment from VBA. I think this is the easiest road.

But if I am understanding this correctly in order to sync my Outlook calendar with my iColud calendar I have to use the cable.  It can't be done wirelessly.  Am I right?

Also, where would I find the examples that show how to create an Outlook appointment from VBA?

I'm not sure. It says here that for photo's there is no need to connect the device, so I assume it will work for appointments the same way.

You can search Google for:
"How to automate Outlook by using Visual Basic"
(including the quotes) to get a nice example of how to create an appointment (and other things too).

Sorry. I'm afraid I can't help you with the iCloud part. There is a lot of information about this on the Apple site. See this page for example:
http://support.apple.com/kb/ts3999

I don't know what you mean by 'wirelessly'. I suppose your pc with Outlook is connected to the Internet (wired or wireless). This Internet connection is used by Outlook to sync with iCloud. Your Apple device also uses an Internet connection to sync with iCloud. There is no direct connection between your pc and the Apple device.
