    I’ve downloaded and begun to play with Formativ and some of the formativ solutions.

    I especially appreciate the Import Outlook applet. However, I’m wondering if someone with more experience can help me.

    I’d like to modify the applet to specify that, if an Outlook appointment falls into certain categoies, it automatically be marked private in GroupWise.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the updated applet. I’ve looked it through and am beginning to be
    able to see how it works. If you don’t mind another question. Can I turn
    things around so that everything EXCEPT listed categories automatically gets
    marked private? IOW, I only have four or five categories I’m importing into
    GW that should be public. All else (and I’ve got LOTS of categories) is
    private stuff.

    As I said, I’ve looked through the code but am not quite sure which line I
    could change to get the reverse action.

    Again, many thanks for your help.

    Try changing line 551 from

    iMarkPrivate = InPrivateCategory(myAppt.Categories)
    

    to

    iMarkPrivate = not InPrivateCategory(myAppt.Categories)
    

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks so much for the help. It worked great.

    One final (I hope) thing. I’ve tried various appraoches to getting the applet to exclude all day events but haven’t had any success. Any clues on how to do that?

    Thanks again,
    Michael

    I’m not that familiar with the Outlook object model. Here’s the reference to the Outlook object model that will hopefully contain the information you require:

    Outlook Object Model Reference

    Once you locate the appropriate property, it shouldn’t be too hard to exclude the appropriate items from the import.

    Thanks again,

    The property in Outlook is AllDayEvent, but I can’t figure out how to add it to the existing language to get it to work.

    I tried a Do Loop within the original Do Loop that gets the info, but couldn’t get it to work there and couldn’t figure out where else to put language to test for the item’s AllDayEvent property.

    Greetings and thank you for your Outlook Migration Utility. I am in need of a modified applet that excludes appointments marked private in Outlook during the migration process. Is this possible?
    Thank you.

    We recommend to use the Personal Outlook Migration Pack (http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/tools/14282.html) solution.

    I think it should be possible but need be to confirm with the Outlook object model. The solution source code is available from Novell Forge, feel free to modify the solution to your needs.

    Hello again,
    I am using the Personal Outlook Migration Pack version 2.0.3 but it does not allow any filtering other than by date. I still would like to exclude appointments marked private in Outlook during the migration process but could do this filtering by category as a work-around. Any help with this would be most appreciated.

    It may be possible to modify the solution to exclude the private items. If you have the resources available in-house then you can modify the solution as the source code is available from the Novell Forge.

    Alternatively you can contact one of our partner (http://advansyscorp.com/resellers_formativ.htm) or write a message to Advansys Support (support@advansyscorp.com) for the custom development.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,
