MeetingItem Object (Outlook)

Represents a change to the recipient's Calendar folder initiated by another party or as a result of a group action.

Remarks

Unlike other Microsoft Outlook objects, you cannot create this object. It is created automatically when you set the MeetingStatus property of an AppointmentItem object to olMeeting and send it to one or more users. They receive it in their inboxes as a MeetingItem.

Use the GetAssociatedAppointment method to return the AppointmentItem object associated with a MeetingItem object, and work directly with the AppointmentItem object to respond to the request.

Example

The following example uses the CreateItem method to create an appointment. It becomes a MeetingItem with both a required and an optional attendee when it is received in the inbox of each of the recipients.

Set myItem = myOlApp.CreateItem(olAppointmentItem) 
 
myItem.MeetingStatus = olMeeting 
 
myItem.Subject = "Strategy Meeting" 
 
myItem.Location = "Conference Room B" 
 
myItem.Start = #9/24/97 1:30:00 PM# 
 
myItem.Duration = 90 
 
Set myRequiredAttendee = myItem.Recipients.Add("Nate _ 
 
 Sun") 
 
myRequiredAttendee.Type = olRequired 
 
Set myOptionalAttendee = myItem.Recipients.Add("Kevin _ 
 
 Kennedy") 
 
myOptionalAttendee.Type = olOptional 
 
Set myResourceAttendee = _ 
 
 myItem.Recipients.Add("Conference Room B") 
 
myResourceAttendee.Type = olResource 
 
myItem.Send
