 Dim myItem as Outlook.AppointmentItem 
 
 Dim myRequiredAttendee As Outlook.Recipient 
 
 Dim myOptionalAttendee As Outlook.Recipient 
 
 Dim myResourceAttendee As Outlook.Recipient 
 
 
 
 Set myItem = Application.CreateItem(olAppointmentItem) 
 
 myItem.MeetingStatus = olMeeting 
 
 myItem.Subject = "Strategy Meeting" 
 
 myItem.Location = "Conference Room B" 
 
 myItem.Start = #9/24/2003 1:30:00 PM# 
 
 myItem.Duration = 90 
 
 Set myRequiredAttendee = myItem.Recipients.Add ("Nate Sun") 
 
 myRequiredAttendee.Type = olRequired

 myOptionalAttendee.Type = olOptional
