    code to delete duplicate calendar entries created from excel spreadsheet

    I have this code that I use to create calendar entries from an excel spreadsheet. The code works ok except that it creates dupliacte calendar entries each time its run. Id like to add code that will prevent the duplicates frombeing created if the body of the calendar entry is the same. The body is the only item that will be different in each calendar entry. If someone could help me out that would be greatly appreciated.

    Hallo chuckm3561
    Welcome to the forum...
    If someone could help me out that would be greatly appreciated.
    This is impossible for anyone in the world to solve due to the following...
    Have no idea what the code is...
    Have no idea what the code does...
    Have no idea how the code is being used...
    Have no idea what your file setup is...

    So...If you can be a little more forthcoming...You might be in luck...
