In a vb6 app, is it possible to retrieve a list of contacts from outlook, and populate a drop down combo box.  If so, can anyone show me how to do this.  thanks.

The info was great and it worked, but I need to get it to work without using an access 97 database, is this possible directly from vb code?

Can't the VB app use the DAO object like Access was?

I am using DAO as specified in the code examples, but for the code to work you need to have an access db aswell.  It doesn't seem to populate the db with any data, so I'm guessing the db is used as a temp area, or to create a view of the outlook (.pst) folders, ....but the db is required for whatever purpose.  Any ideas?
