I want to add contacts from my Access database to an Outlook Contacts folder.  I know how to send the data - but how do I tell the program which of several Contacts folders I want to send the data to.  Is there a GetSpecificFolder type function or similar??

I think you have to do something like this: (Not tested, kind of pseudocode)

Set MyContacts = olns.GetDefaultFolder(olContacts)
For I = 0 MyContacts.Count - 1
  Print MyContacts.Items(I)

Hi BlackMan - thanks for the reply.  I think you are probably on the right track, but I have tried your pseudocode and several variations on it and I keep getting range errors.

Here is a bit of sample code that may answer you question

Set pubFolder = New Outlook.Application.GetNameSpace("MAPI").Folders("Public Folders")
 
  Set specificFolder = pubFolder.Folders("My Public Contacts")

I hope this helps
