In Outlook 2003's calendar view you can see a placeholder for a private

appointment in another person's calendar.

There is a way to retrive non-confidential information (start, end and

free/busy status) by vba or it is impossible???

Thanks in advance,

Alberto
 
You need to use the GetFreeBusy method of the AddressEntry object to do this.

Hi Alan, thanks for the hint!

I'm trying to do some experiments with the the GetFreeBusy method,

but it seems a little unpredictable...

Sometimes I got the right day and hour of an hidden appointment,

but sometime they are wrong!

And how can I find the end of the appointment???

Can anyone post a little example?

Thanks in advance,

Alberto

GetFreeBusy does not get the start and end times of appointments as you have

probably figured out. If a user has created an appointment in their

calendar, it will detect whether they have set the 'Show Time As' box to free

or busy. If the user has not done this then the method will not return the

information that you are expecting. Some sample code:-

Public Function GetFreeBusyOfSomeone(Person As String) As String

Dim objRecipient As Recipient

Dim objAddressEntry As AddressEntry

Dim strFreeBusy As String

Set objRecipient = Outlook.Session.CreateRecipient(Person)

objRecipient.Resolve

If objRecipient.Resolved Then

Set objAddressEntry = objRecipient.AddressEntry

strFreeBusy = objAddressEntry.GetFreeBusy(#7/7/2009#, 60)

Set objAddressEntry = Nothing

End If

Set objRecipient = Nothing

GetFreeBusyOfSomeone=strFreeBusy

End Sub

This gets a string showing Fred Bloggs free or busy status starting on the

7th July in 60 minute intervals for the next 30 days. Therefore if the first

character in the string is a 0 then the person is free from 00:00 till 01:00.

If it is a 1 then the person is marked as busy from 00:00 to 01:00, and so

on.
