    Sharing Claendars (Outlook 2K)

    I have never used Outlook before (company utilizes Lotus notes) and am curious as to whether or not I can set up Outlook on a network and allow the clendars to be shared by all users on the network. I am designing a database in Access for this small business, that also wants the ability to share calendars and schedule appointments for employees. Is this possible through outlook, or will I need to create this functionality in my Access database?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    You can share calendars through Exchange, or by using Public Folders. Have a look at the Help topic headed Manage appointments and meetings in another persons calendar, which has a sub topic called View another person's calendar. HTH

    Marc,

    From what I remember from the corporate world using an Exchange server, I believe that permissions must be given on individual basis for ones calendar to be viewed by others. If you want to allow others to make changes to your calendar you must also give that permission on individual basis. I don

    Be careful sharing in Outlook 2000 without Exchange server. It's not available in XP, so your client might not like you after a couple years. Anyway, check this site out:
