    I'm not sure how much custom programming this would involve, not having automated Outlook. From my perspective, the MapPoint side would be easy, I'm just not sure how difficult it would be to get it into Outlook, given the slew of Outlook version out there. Are you aiming to do this for just one machine or roll it out to standardized configurations?

    Outlook automation (not Express) is really easy. If you can figure out the mapPoint COM Object model Outlook is just as easy! If I remember rightly the objects you're looking to create are those of olAppointmentItem.

    Used the following vbScript on my web page but it can be done a lot neater in VBA or C++ etc.

    Sub AddAppt(olApp, olDate)
    Dim olApt

    Set olApt = olApp.CreateItem(1)
    olApt.AllDayEvent = True
    olApt.Start = olDate
    olApt.Subject = "Bank Holiday"
    olApt.ReminderSet = False
    olApt.Save
    Set olApt = Nothing

    End Sub

    Sub AddToOutlook()
    Dim olApp
    Set olApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")

    AddAppt olApp, NewYearsDay
    AddAppt olApp, MayDay
    AddAppt olApp, SpringDay
    AddAppt olApp, SummerDay
    AddAppt olApp, GoodFriday
    AddAppt olApp, EasterMonday
    AddAppt olApp, XmasDay
    AddAppt olApp, BoxingDay

    Set olApp = nothing
    End Sub
