Outlook Shared Calendar: Who?

By daveDH ·
I have searched deep for solutions to this without luck...

I have a shared team calendar (not public calendar) in outlook (2003) in an exchange environment with a team given the ability to create new entries and to only edit their own entries.

As the owner of the calendar (my calendar is the one shared) how do I find out who created the entries?

I know the info must be stored somewhere because they're only allowed to edit their own creations.

Any help or pointers greatly appreciated (either through the GUI or through programming).

I don't know if this will answer your question but if you double click on the event you want to find the owner for, then click on the scheduling tab, you should see a list of attendees, one of whom will be the meeting organiser. That should be the owner, as far as Outlook is concerned.

Salidarx, thanks, although it didn't help directly (no meeting organiser shown, possibly due to the entries just being appointments not meetings) your suggestion did change my approach...

I exported an entry to a vCalendar file and it contained the ORGANISER:MAILTO: entry that contained the information I wanted, although exporting each entry seemed too tedious...

I created a custom Calendar Form in Outlook (had to add another tab as the default one wouldn't let me modify it) and placed on the new tab the 'Organiser' field from 'appointment fields' and the 'from' field from 'mail fields' (contains different information on some entries)...

I published the new form and set it as the default for new entries on my calendar, however this doesn't change the association for previously existing calendar appointments. Doing this showed the details I required when new entries were added to the calendar...

For the pre-existing entries I had to download a utility to update them to use my new custom form. I used 'DocMessageClass' from '' which worked a treat.
