    Using Excel to generate an Outlook Calendar Event

    Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone knows how to generate an outlook calendar
    event from Excel. I have an Excel timeline for opening a new
    restaurant and there are certain things I need to do each day, and I
    would like to automatically add those dates into my Outlook Calendar
    somehow, then when I need to do a certain thing, it pops up on my
    Outlook calendar.

    Any ideas would be helpful, not sure if this can even be done,

    Thanks for your time,

    -Michael

    Michael,

    It can be done. Below is an example where I draw from sheet1 which was set
    up with Start times in Column A and locations in Column B. I suspect you
    will have other aspects of appointments you want recorded but this example
    should get you started. Note that once you open the VBE window, you want to
    select 'Tools > References' and put a check in the box for "Microsoft
    Outlook 11.0 Object Library" (number may vary depending on your version of
    Office)

    Sub ScheduleAppts()
    Dim ol As New Outlook.Application
    Dim ns As Outlook.Namespace
    Dim olFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
    Dim appt As Outlook.AppointmentItem
    Dim R As Integer
    Dim X As Integer

    R = Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row

    Set ns = ol.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set olFolder = ns.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderCalendar)

    For X = 1 To R
    Set appt = olFolder.Items.Add
    With appt
    .Start = Sheets("Sheet1").Cells(X, 1).Value
    .Location = Sheets("Sheet1").Cells(X, 2).Value
    .Save
    End With
    Next X

    Set ol = Nothing
    Set ns = Nothing
    Set appt = Nothing
    End Sub
