    Edit meeting notes from received response (2000)

    What is the best method to find the meeting appointment on a calendar that is being responded to? And then edit the notes of that meeting?

    I'd like to copy the text of a response, along with the sender's name (invitee in this case) and their status (accepted, declined, tentative), and append to the body of the orginal meeting on my calendar.

    How might I need to modify the code if the appointment comes from my boss' calendar, and our assistant is opening the responses? I'd still like to get text from the responses into the appointment on our boss' calendar. This can then be printed out to capture reasons for declining the meeting, etc.

    Re: Edit meeting notes from received response (2000)

    As an amateur Outlook VBA coder I think this would be REALLY hard to automate in Outlook 2000 VBA, and not much easier in Outlook 2002+, where the Rules are more powerful and useful (the form type is available as a Rule parameter), and VB Events are a bit more exposed (Item_Add helps code examine incoming messages). Even in Outlook 2003, users cannot view Messages and Calendar Items together by "conversation'. You might be able to do more with CDO, or MAPI if you code in C++.

    But maybe I'm overlooking something. <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>

    See if you can create a Rule that saves meeting responses to a designated folder. Then you can Filter them by meeting date and time, and work manually from there.
