MAPI question

I want to get a dialog box like the 'File open' for the 'address book' and this is the code that MSDN suggests - however, they do not get the fundamentals, but rather dive right into the code

my question is, what Object Reference do I need in order to get MAPI to work?


Dim objSession As MAPI.Session, obRecipColl As Recipients
Set objSession = CreateObject("MAPI.Session")
objSession.Logon

The OCX is MSMAPI32.OCX.  You might want to look at the following question in the Access topic:

Hope this helps,

In order to get MAPI to work, you must have the Microsoft MAPI controls installed. There is MSMAPI32.OCX in the file.

I think that you need reference MSMAPI object:



Dim objSession As Object
Set objSession = CreateObject("MSMAPI.MAPISession")
objSession.SignOn

okay bonus question - if you want I can post it as a new one (considering this one is closed), I figured I might get as quick a response if I had this one send out an e-maiil as opposed to just posting a new question and waiting for people to spot it

anyways, my question is still concerning the MAPI  -- I established a connection fine, and it causes the address book to pop-up, but I can't retrieve anything more than the display name -- I was hoping to find the place where I can get all the properties and procedures for MAPI

I think I had it pulled up once on my MSDN but I can't seem to find the right keyword search for it again
