Changing default reminder time for all day events - additional help needed

I was able to successfully use some VB scripting that I found here to change the default time from 18 hours to whatever I wanted. The problem is that I'd like to choose someone else's calendar that I have rights to. I don't know if that is possible because those calendars don't show up in the folder list, so I can't really get the path. Has anyone been able to do this? I used Diane Poremsky's post included below for reference.

How to Remove Reminders on All Day Events to

To control the reminder on all events, regardless of the calendar, change

Set Items = Ns.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderCalendar).Items


Set Items = Application.ActiveExplorer.CurrentFolder.Items

If you want the option to do this or not, you could tweak the code:

'msgbox block - 3 lines
If MsgBox("Do you want to set the reminder?", vbYesNo) = vbNo Then
Exit Sub
End If

'appt.reminderset block - 2 lines
Appt.ReminderSet = True
