Import vCalendar items on the fly to outlook

Hello,

We are doing some development for a Vet clinic that uses a software

program called "Cornerstone" to manage appointments for animals. The

Vets at the clinic use Outlook/Exchange to manage their personal/work

calendars.

We have punched a hole in Cornerstone that allows us to extract

appointments for each Vet and create any type of file format we

want.

What we want to do is create a vCal document and "push"/automatically

import this file in the Dr.'s Outlook calendar every five minutes or

so. That way they could be notified anytime an appointment was

schedule.

Does anyone have a streamlined way to do this?

We are using Exchange 2003 and Outlook 2007. Again, we can create any

type of file we want from the appointments coming out of Cornerstone.

Thanks.

Why not just use the Outlook object model to directly create the Outlook

appointments?
