AppointmentItem.End Property (Outlook)
Returns or sets a Date indicating the end date and time of an AppointmentItem. Read/write.
This Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example uses CreateItem to create an AppointmentItem object. The RecurrencePattern is obtained for this item using the AppointmentItem.GetRecurrencePattern method. By setting the RecurrencePattern properties, RecurrenceType, PatternStartDate, and PatternEndDate, the appointments are now a recurring series that occur on a daily basis for the period of one year.
An Exception object is created when one instance of this recurring appointment is obtained using the GetOccurrence method and properties for this instance are altered. This exception to the series of appointments is obtained using the GetRecurrencePattern method to access the Exceptions collection associated with this series. Message boxes display the original AppointmentItem.Subject and Exception.OriginalDate for this exception to the series of appointments and the current date, time, and subject for this exception.
