I have automated the creation and update of tasks in external software, everything is fine, (here it comes) BUT :-
I cannot update the task contacts on the task to be updated.
If you create/update a task manually in outlook there is a free format area to specify an text you wish (i.e. you do not have to use the contacts button).
When you read this from the task item object
Objtaskitem.contacts it comes back as an array, no problem.
What I'm trying to find is a way of updating this property.
The help on the subject suggests:-
Returns the contact names associated with the task. This property contains the display names for the contacts only. Use the Recipients collection to modify the contents of this string.
Anyone know how to update the contacts with free format text that is not a defined contact???
