Creating Appointments and Meeting Requests

This content is no longer actively maintained. It is provided as is, for anyone who may still be using these technologies, with no warranties or claims of accuracy with regard to the most recent product version or service release.

You can add an appointment to your calendar and request that others join you by sending them meeting requests. You add an appointment by creating a Collaboration Data Objects (CDO) Appointment object, setting information about the appointment by using the object, and then saving the item to a folder. You create a meeting request from the Appointment object by using the CreateRequest method of the IAppointment interface. CDO creates a special message within a CalendarMessage object that you then send to attendees to invite them to the appointment.

Note   The Exchange Server 2003 SP2 versions of CDOEX, CDO 1.2.1, and the ExOLEDB provider handle calendar items differently than earlier versions of Exchange Server 2003. See CDOEX Calendaring Differences Between Exchange 2003 and Exchange 2003 SP2 for more information.
