Recurring Meetings Using VBA


G

Guest

I have written code to move meetings from my calendar to a public calendar.
All meetings move successfully except recurring meetings. Below is the code
that I am using. Each time I use the any of the recurring objects nothing
seems to happen or it fails. Any assistance would be appreciated. Code below:

Sub MoveMeetings()
'Move meetings from my personal calendar to the public calendar

Dim olFolder As MAPIFolder
Dim olFolderSAP As MAPIFolder
Dim ns As Outlook.NameSpace
Dim appts As Object
Dim appt As Object
Dim apptrec As Object
Dim SAPMeeting As Object
Dim date1 As Date
Dim date2 As Date
Dim I As Integer

Const strPublicFolder = "Public Folders\All Public Folders\SAP Calendar"

Set ns = Outlook.GetNamespace("MAPI")
Set olFolder = ns.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderCalendar)
Set appts = olFolder.Items
Set olFolderSAP = GetFolder(strPublicFolder)
Set SAPMeeting = olFolderSAP.Items.Add()

date1 = InputBox("Move items between - this date: ", "Start Date")
date2 = InputBox("and this date: ", "End Date")

For Each appt In appts
If Format(appt.Start, "short date") >= date1 And Format(appt.Start,
"short date") < date2 Then
Set apptrec = appt.GetRecurrencePattern
With SAPMeeting
.Subject = appt.ConversationTopic
.Start = appt.Start
.End = appt.End
.Location = appt.Location
.Organizer = appt.Organizer
.Body = appt.Body
.RequiredAttendees = appt.RequiredAttendees
.OptionalAttendees = appt.OptionalAttendees
.RecurrenceType = apptrec.RecurrenceType
.Interval = apptrec.Interval
.PatternEndDate = apptrec.PatternEndDate
.Save
End With
End If
Next appt

End Sub

I want to add one additional thing to this:

What would the approach be if a meeting I wanted to move to the public
calendar had an attachment? What would the approach be? ... if there is a
place on the web that I can look to understand this some more let me know.
Thanks again.

Nothing different should need to be done for items with attachments. The
Move method will move those along with their associated messages.

I certainly wouldn't touch the RecurrencePattern property unless I knew the
item was a recurring item or wanted to make it one. Just retrieving that
property makes the item recurring. Check for .IsRecurring first.

If you do have a recurring item get the master recurring item
(RecurrencePattern.Parent) and try moving that, it should move the entire
series.

Ken -

Are you saying that I should use the Move Method as opposed to the approach
that I am taking with Add? I noticed that some of the objects are
read-only...is there other objects that provide the access for
writing/changing?

I would certainly use the Move method unless you want to retain a copy of
the item in the original folder.

Many Outlook properties are read-only, if that's what you're asking. Some
are read-only for the Outlook object model and can be changed using some
other API such as CDO 1.21 or Extended MAPI or Redemption. Others can only
be set before the first time the item is saved. Others can only be set by
Outlook or the store provider or the MAPI transport and are out of your
control.
