Copy Appointment Body to Task Body

Hi, I've been using something similar to this post
to create task items, but it's a little funky after a decade. So I'm using your example directly.

It works great for making tasks from emails. I cannot get it to correctly make a task from an appointment. The appointment body/notes won't copy to the clipboard for pasting.

When class=olmail, objWord = "Microsoft Word", objSel populates and the task is created correctly.
When class=olAppointment, objWord = "Microsoft Word" , but objSel remains Nothing.
A task is created and the macro steps correctly to completion, but the task body is populated with the previous clipboard contents. What am I missing, or, how do I get the body of an AppointmentItem to the clipboard?

Code:
  If Not objMail Is Nothing Then
    If objMail.Class = olMail Then
    Set objInsp = objMail.GetInspector
        If objInsp.EditorType = olEditorWord Then
        Set objDoc = objInsp.WordEditor
        Set objWord = objDoc.Application
        Set objSel = objWord.Selection
        
        With objSel
        .WholeStory
        .Copy
        End With
        End If
        
    ElseIf objMail.Class = olAppointment Then
    Set objInsp = objMail.GetInspector
        If objInsp.EditorType = olEditorWord Then
        Set objDoc = objInsp.WordEditor
        Set objWord = objDoc.Application
        Set objSel = objWord.Selection
        With objSel
        .WholeStory
        .Copy
        End With
        End If

    End If
End If

Thank you
