Here is some sample code. Create a new project, and set a reference to CDO 1.21 (or whatever version you have), Create a form with a listbox called list1, and a button called Command1. Here's the code...

Private Sub Command1_Click()

    Dim objSession As Session
    Dim objPAB As AddressList
    Dim objEntries As AddressEntries
    Dim objEntry As AddressEntry
    Dim idx As Integer
   
    Set objSession = New Session
    objSession.Logon ShowDialog:=True
   
    If objSession Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
    Set objPAB = objSession.GetAddressList(0)

    'substitute 1 for the 0 above for the personal address book
    If objPAB Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
    Set objEntries = objPAB.AddressEntries
   
    For idx = 1 To objEntries.Count
        Set objEntry = objEntries.Item(idx)
        List1.AddItem objEntry.Name
    Next idx

End Sub

You'd probably want to close your session and set the objects = nothing when you are done....
