Getting an Adress from the Address Book

I have a requirement to copy an address from the Address Book into a variable

So far I can open the address book using

On Error Resume Next
MapiMessages.Show

which opens the address book.

How can I put the selected address into a variable

my messaging system is MS Exchange

Hi Andy,
Andy

Great piece of code but for the life of me I can't figure out how to use pieces of it for what I require.

Basically all I need to do is to show the Address Book, select an address and when the Address Book OK button is pressed store that address in a textbox

I tried your GetRC and SetRC but can't get it to work. Your complete application works ok though.

The problem I have is that the Address Book is opening but I have no email open in the background.

Ideas please ???
