    Outlook 2003 Automation (Office 2003)

    I've created a small calender application in VB6 that uses automation of Outlook 2002 (XP). It syncronizes copies appointments from personal calendars into a shared department calendar. I recently upgraded to Office 2003 and my application now experiences errors in some Outlook Automation calls.

    For example, attempts to read the 'Companies' property of the Outlook.AppointmentItem returns:

    "Run-time error '-2147221233 (8004010f)': Method 'Companies' of object 'AppointmentItem' failed"

    Same thing occurs with the 'BillingInformation' property. I use these properties to store sync data with the appointment. As far as the Outlook 2003 documentation is concerned, these properties are still there.

    Anyone have any experience with this?

    It's interesting that you say they are properties but the error message says method. Perhaps there has been a change in the object model that did away with a default property or changed from a single value to a collection... I'm not running 2003, or I'd give it a try. Maybe someone else can replicate the problem?
