    VBA access to Attendee Availability (Outlook 2000 SR-1 (9.0.0.3821))

    I'd like to set up a meeting "appointment" in Outlook using VBA automation. I can create the appointment object and add recipients and "send" it (put it on their calendars) just fine. What I'd like to do and have figured out how is to check the calendars for each of the recipients to determine their availability (i.e., access the information on the "Attendee Availability" tab (Meeting Request) through the Outlook object model) and then set the time and duration of the meeting accordingly. The recipients are all on our network's Microsoft Exchange Server.

    Can this be done? If so, can anyone get me pointed in the right direction?

    Thanks.

    Hi Tom,
    I've never actually used it, but does the Recipient.FreeBusy method get you the information you need?

    Rory,

    Hey, that looks like the ticket! I'll have to play around with it, but from Help it looks like that's where I can get the availability information. When I was scouring the object model, I just blew by FreeBusy thinking it was the "Show Time As Free/Tentative/Busy/Out of Office" property of the appointment. If I had just noticed it was a method...

    Thanks for correcting my eyesight!!!
