AppointmentItem.MeetingStatus Property (Outlook)
Published: July 16, 2012
Returns or sets an OlMeetingStatus constant specifying the meeting status of the appointment. Read/write.
This Visual Basic for Applications example uses CreateItem to create an appointment and uses MeetingStatus to set the meeting status to "Meeting" to turn it into a meeting request with both a required and an optional attendee.
