Microsoft Outlook Collection of Constants

Ever seen a vb code which says something like

"Set MyItem = MyOlApp.CreateItem(olAppointmentItem)" or "MyRequiredAttendee.Type = olRequired"

and had a tough time figuring out what those constants starting with ol stand for when implementing them in your technology. I had my share of head ache to find the nice simple solution for it

Go through the site and you may find it useful. Microsoft guys can atleast give a flow chart showing the relations between the various objects in the Object Model documentation. Atleast more developers can understand em and support microsoft.

Thanks to the awesome work by John Coolidge. You would definitely be impressed. Take a look at the his work
