Dragging a Contact to the Calendar icon will create an appointment with the Contact Name as the with an invitation addressed to the Contact's email. I don't need to send an email. Is there a similar way to create a blank appointment without the invitation and with the Company name in the Subject line? (I'd also like to routinely include the Title field in the subject line, but that may involve VBA I'd guess.)

Both involve VBA. This creates the new item
Code:
sub CreateContact()
  dim task as taskitem
  dim contact as contactitem
  set contact=application.activeexplorer.selection(1)
  set task=application.createitem(oltaskitem)
  task.subject=contact.companyname
  task.display
end sub
