Reporter Reporter
VBOffice Reporter is an easy to use tool for data analysis and reporting in Outlook. A single click, for instance, allows you to see the number of hours planned for meetings the next month.

The sample gets the number of appointments of a given day - also including recurrings. The returned value tells you that number. Via the optional argument oResult you get access to the found items.
