Convert VBA code to VBS code

What needs to be changed in the following code to be able to run it from a VBS file:

Sub FindContact()
   
    Dim olApp As Outlook.Application
    Dim objContact As ContactItem
    Dim objContacts As MAPIFolder
    Dim objNameSpace As NameSpace
    Dim objProperty As UserProperty

    Set olApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    Set objNameSpace = olApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set objContacts = objNameSpace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderContacts)

Well, try this:
All variables are variant so you cannot qualify as Outlook.Application, as ContactItem,
as MAPIFolder and so on.
Also, you have to know which values represent each constants since vbs doesn't know about it (in example, olFolderContacts) Check F2 key in IDE to know the real numeric values and use them instead of constants.
You could also create your own constants but have to be defined before use anyway.

That's should be enought.
I have doubts about "nothing" since it is a string but well, if code works in other context, that's fine.

As Richie_Simonetti pointed out you will need to do the following:

Delete this:
    Dim olApp As Outlook.Application
    Dim objContact As ContactItem
    Dim objContacts As MAPIFolder
    Dim objNameSpace As NameSpace
    Dim objProperty As UserProperty

The numeric value for olFolderContacts = 10

So change this:

Set objContacts = objNameSpace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderContacts)

to this

Set objContacts = objNameSpace.GetDefaultFolder(10)
