This is really just an initial inquiry to see if any experts have had experience with appointment scheduling in Access.  I believe I will want to schedule events based on some specified criteria such as frequency.  But then I want the scheduled events to be presented in list form as a report but also represented on a calendar.

Any advice as to how to get started will be much appreciated.

In the end, ... (In my humble opinion...)
;-)
While you can do what you are asking in Access, ...my felling is that it is just taking the long way around to recreate the wheel for functionality that already exists in Outlook
..again, ...you can do a search here or on the web for many ways of creating event calendars in Access.
(...a couple of youtube videos exist on this topic)...

We've decided to use Google Calendar to the concept of exporting to Google Calendar will work.  But I also appreciate the other insight provided.  Thank you.
