Copying a Calendar Object

To copy a Calendar object, the client creates a new Calendar object in the target folder by using the RopCreateMessage ROP ([MS-OXCROPS] section and then copies all properties from the original object onto the new Calendar object, with the exception of the following properties. Note that a copy of a Calendar object is a static copy of the original. When the source object is a meeting, the new copy will not be updated with any future changes made by the organizer.

The following properties MUST NOT be copied onto the new object:

These four properties are set according to the descriptions in the sections referenced as though the Calendar object was just created.
