    Default Help needed with a sentence please

    "I have the appointment fixed for tomorrow"

    Is the above sentence correct?

    I am not sure if it can be "fixed for tomorrow"

    I want to know how it is okay. Some technical explanation would help me understand.

    My friend said, it is wrong. This is what my friend said -
    " you can't have an appointment fixed for tomorrow.You can have it fixed for the customer.It should be - I have an appt fixed tomorrow for you

    Tell your friend that you can have an appointment fixed for tomorrow. I suppose that we don't really need 'fixed' if it's an appointment, which, almost by definition has been fixed. However, it's not bad grammar. These are fine:

    You have a meeting scheduled for 3.30.
    I have the appointment fixed for tomorrow.
