Open outlook calendar by name

5 posts in this topic

I want to open an outlook calendar so I can export some of the dates from it, currenlty I open outlook and go to the calendar by doing:

Run ("C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office12\Outlook.exe /select outlook:calendar")

The problem is my outlook as more then one calendar - running the above does not open the calendar I wish to.

Is there a way I can pass the name of the calendar I want to the above line of code?

Is the other calendar under a different container or does it have a different name? You might try "mystuff:calendar" for a different container, or "outlook:MyCalendar" if it's under the default folder with a different name.

There is a very good Outlook UDF that might offer the function you need or give you at least an idea how to do it yourself.

I successfully open the calender of another user using the COM interface.

Thanks for the replys. The calendar is a shared one. I tried the "outlook:MyCalendar" but that didn't work.

I use the following code to access the calendars of other users (Outlook 2002):

$sTemp = "user for which you want to access the calender"
$oApp = ObjCreate("Outlook.Application")
$oNS = $oApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")
$oDummy = $oApp.CreateItem($olMailItem) ; Create dummy mail for name resolution
$oRecip = $oDummy.Recipients.Add("=" & $sTemp) ; "=" stands for exact name resolution
$oRecip.Resolve
If $oRecip.Resolved Then
 $oFolder = $oNS.GetSharedDefaultFolder($oRecip, $olFolderCalendar)
 If IsObj($oFolder) Then
    ... access the calendar ...
 EndIf
Endif
