Hi,

I want to extract the calender data (i.e the data of all the shared

calenders)

I am creating an Add-in for Outlook in Vb.net . I need to read the meetings

between a given duration from a shared calendar. I will give the shared

calendar names ( around 20) with time and i need to know which all calendars

and free and which all are busy at that specific time.

I already tried to read the calendars in a loop and its taking a lot of time

to read each calendar.so i wanted to know if there is a faster way of doing

this.

Can anyone let me know where does this data get stored and how to extract

the same.

I am using outlook 2003.

With the Redemption library (www.dimastr.com) you can read the data very

fast. There's a lot of help and code examples on the website. See the

MapiTable object.

In addition to Michael's suggestion, you might want to look at

http://www.outlookcode.com/article.aspx?id=30 for an explanation of the

logic needed to search over a date range. Also, if you need only free/busy

availability information and not the details of appointments, you can use

the Recipient.FreeBusy method.

You might also want to look into RDOFolder2.GetActivitiesForTimeRange

(http://www.dimastr.com/redemption/rdo/RDOFolder.htm#rdofolder2) and

RDOAddressEntry.FreeBusyList
