Accessing Outlook calendar data from a Powerbuilder application.


I want my application (developed in PowerBuilder) to access calendar data in
Microsoft Outlook.
I am rather blank on how to approach this task, so if someone could guide me
to some relevant resources on the net I would be very thankful.

Use OLE and VBA (Visual Basic for Applications). To learn more about OLE,
review the application techniques manual on that subject. For VBA, go to and search for Outlook.

Another approach is to use ADO, which can access Exchange data if 
configured appropriately.

Powerbuilder application "crashing" another powerbuilder application
This is a repost of the above subject since there has been some problem for messages posted on the 19th - 22nd July 2002. *************** Hi All, I have an application (App A)built using PB7.0.3 build 10077 and it seems to work fine. However, recently, another application (App B) built using PB 7.0.3 build 10047 as well was installed and it seems to trigger Dr Watson on App A. There is an embedded OCX on a "main" window on App A, which receives triggers from external applications. The OCX will then call another function sitting on another main window. That function w...

PowerBuilder Crashes when trying to access data window data source
Hi there, I installed powerbuilder on a new computer and now it crashes when I open a data window and then try to access the data source (SQL). It bombs out completely with no error message. The version of powerbuilder is8.0 and it worked fine on the previous computer. I have regenerated the data window, exported and imported the data window etc but nothing seems to fix the problem. The problem also occurs if I make a new data window. I can access the database (oracle) in the database painter fine. Anyone any idea what is going on ? Thanks Hugh > I installed p...

data exchange between PowerBuilder applications
PowerBuilder 11.5.1 I am looking for a possibility to exchange data between two or more PowerBuilder applications which are all under my control. I tried to use the Send()/Post() functions. I pass the values in the wordParm and longParm respectively. This works fine for numeric data only. But I was not able to pass string data this way. Obviously the String(longParm, "address") Syntax does not work over more than one PowerBuilder application - which actually is no surprise. Is there another way in PowerBuilder to do this (apart from using DDE)? Andi Hi Andi, ...

Accessing data in Excel from Powerbuilder
Hi, I am importing data from an Excel workbook into a Powerbuilder (version 8.03 build 9704) datawindow via ODBC. The user is asked to enter the name of the excel file in an application window, and I would like to pass this filename onto the transaction object. But I'm not able to find out which property to use in the transaction object. When the Connect-statement is issued, the user is prompted for the filename, which I want to avoid. Does anyone know where to enter this filename in the trans. object ? Here is the code ltr_excel = create transaction ltr_excel.DBMS = "...

Accessing Excel data from PowerBuilder
I am trying to access data in an Excel spreadsheet from PowerBuilder. After reviewing the PB documentation and a number of posts from these newsgroups, I figured that I can do it in one of three ways: 1. Save As text from the Excel file, then use a method like ImportFile to bring the data into PB; 2. Use OLE to access the Excel file; 3. Use ODBC to access the Excel file. (1) doesn't meet my requirements (I need to be able to bring in the data directly from Excel, without any intermediate steps), so that left me with options (2) and (3) (OLE or ODBC). I should say a bi...

Generating PowerBuilder Applications from Data Model
A few years ago I used a version of PowerDesigner (perhaps AppModeller) to generate a functioning PowerBuilder application directly from a physical data model. It was fine for editing static data. I now have PowerDesigner 9.5.0 and want to do it again for static data. I can't find how to do it in this version of PowerBuilder. Any ideas? The functionality of AppModeler was not carried forward to PD 7, 8 or 9.x. However, using the 9.5.2 release, you are able to generate and reverse engineer PB extended attributes in the PDM. In the OOM, you can now reverse engineer your entire...

Using PowerBuilder to Access Data from IQ?
We're designing our new business intelligence application and try to get much more information about IQ. Our current application is developed by using PowerBuilder.

PowerBuilder Application Execution Error: Datastore Access
Currently, we are experiencing problems with a component, in production, under load. The logs identify one datastore as the "culprit"; however, the component does not die in the same place. The component either dies in one of two methods while accessing the datastore. The datastore creation and initialization (e.g., dataobject, transaction object, retrieve) are identical. The interesting part, the data was just retrieved successfully (no errors logged checking the datastore's instance variable is_dberror), so the data should exist. >>> Are there any known m...

Single Powerbuilder Application Accessing multiple database
My current PB6.5 application is running on an NT4 and Oracle 8i platform. I would like to know if it is possible for a single PB application accessing more than one database.

Does anybody got a PB application that looks at two databases? Regards, PB Apps Developer Sure. Just create and connect another transaction object.
