Missing Outlook Calendar Items

Recommended Posts


I'm creating a code for creating and deleting calendar events in outlook.

When I create an events, I use a UserProperties with my softwarename to recognize them later.

When I scan to delete, I just want scan every event and verify if the UserProperties is well Set (Just to be sure I don't delete a IMPORTANT handmade event)

Normally this code must work but I don't know why, $Items don't contain every calandar events...

Some body have an idea???? Thanks in Advance

$oOutlook = _OutlookOpen()
$Items = $oOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI").GetDefaultFolder($olFolderCalendar).Items
for $Item In $Items
    If IsObj($Item.UserProperties($SoftName)) Then

I would investigate recurrence state, that might be your problem. I had many problems with that with some of my scripts. Just to get you started this is how I have queried for it.

if $m.RecurrenceState=1 Then
            if $m.GetRecurrencePattern.dayofweekmask=bitwday(_DateToDayOfWeek(StringLeft($startdate,4),Stringmid($startdate,5,2),Stringmid($startdate,7,2))) then
                             if $m.GetRecurrencePattern.recurrencetype= 1 then ;weekly pattern
                             elseif _DateToDayOfWeek (StringLeft($m.GetRecurrencePattern.starttime,4)+110,Stringmid($m.GetRecurrencePattern.starttime,5,2),Stringmid($m.GetRecurrencePattern.starttime,7,2))=_DateToDayOfWeek(@year,@mon,@mday) then ;monthly pattern
func bitwday($day)
    if $day=1 then return 1 ;sunday
    if $day=2 then return 2 ;monday
    if $day=3 then return 4
    if $day=4 then return 8
    if $day=5 then return 16
    if $day=6 then return 32
    if $day=7 then return 64

To be sure I have try this:

With $oOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI").GetDefaultFolder($olFolderCalendar).Items
            .Sort("[Start]", False)
            .IncludeRecurrences = True
            $Items=.Restrict("[Start] >= '"&StringStripCR(_ExcelReadCell($oExcel, $DateLine, $StartDataColumn))&" 00:00'")

With .IncludeRecurrences = True & False But nothing Change, I don't have totaly understand your answer...
