Programmatically Creating Outlook Appointment in Navision

Dear Friends in this post I will discuss about creating Outlook Appointment from Navision using DotNet Interop. Without going much in theory lets jump to practical approach.

To start with first we need to define some DotNet variables:

Name DataType Subtype
OutlookItemType DotNet Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.OlItemType.
‘Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook, Version=15.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c’
outlookApplication DotNet Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.Application.
‘Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook, Version=15.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c’
outlookApplicationClass DotNet Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.ApplicationClass.
‘Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook, Version=15.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c’
outlookAppItem DotNet Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.AppointmentItem.
‘Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook, Version=15.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c’

I have created a function CreateOutlookAppointment which takes parameters as:

 

OAP1

And the code as below:

OAP2

To call this function I use below code:

OAP3

The code is itself self-explanatory.

You can add other validations and parameters as per the requirement.

Imp Tip:- Make sure you set for all DotNet Variables RunOnClient = Yes.

On run the output will be as:

OAP4

 

OAP5

 

What you are waiting for, go create Appointment and have fun.

See you seen via my next post. Till then keep learning and growing in your career.
