    I would like to know if you have any idea about the following issue :

    After an insert , i have some CRUD method to insert or deleting an appointement . In our system , the ID stored is a long and Outlook generate a string (guid?)

    The thing is if i want to synchronize both systems , i need to match on the ID but in this case , they are different .

    It seems that my insert method is executed first (Debug), and then the Exchange provider insert the new appointment (successfully) .

    Is there a way to get the newly guid ID created by the ExchangeProvider ? In that case , it will be easier to create an ExternalID on our database .

    Thanks a lot for your help,

    Hello Issou,

    I am afraid that you are not able to access the new ID value created by the Exchange provider. It is created internally and you can not access it.

    In fact , i found the solution on the AppointmentInsert method in the ExchangeSchedule Provider .

    When the provider calls the service for inserting  ( Service.CreateItem(AppointmentToInsert) ) , it returns a ResponseMessageType object that contains  a CalendarItemType object with the item.ID property that contains the new Guid created .

    Thank you ,
