Hi,

I have the below code which works fine but I would also like to get the persons telephone number from outlook.

Option Explicit
Private Declare Function LookupAccountSid Lib "advapi32.dll" Alias "LookupAccountSidA" (ByVal lpSystemName As String, Sid As Any, ByVal name As String, cbName As Long, ByVal ReferencedDomainName As String, cbReferencedDomainName As Long, peUse As Integer) As Long

Public Function LookUpUserByOutlookSID(ByVal strSID As String)
Dim bByte() As Byte
Dim tmp As Integer
Dim i As Integer
Dim ret As Boolean
Dim strDomain As String
Dim iType As Integer
Dim strUserId As String
Dim strFname As String
Dim strLname As String
Dim strEmail As String
Dim strPhone As String
Dim strPersonId As string

On Error GoTo errOutlook:

tmp = Len(strSID) / 2 - 1
ReDim bByte(tmp) As Byte
For i = 0 To tmp - 1
  bByte(i) = CInt("&h" & Mid(strSID, (i * 2) + 1, 2))
Next

strUserId = Space(64)
strDomain = Space(64)

'Get the NT Domain and UserName
ret = LookupAccountSid(vbNullString, bByte(0), strUserId, Len(strName), strDomain, Len(strDomain), iType)
 
strDomain = Left(strDomain, InStr(strDomain, Chr(0)) - 1)
strUserId = Left(strUserId, InStr(strUserId, Chr(0)) - 1)
strPersonId = strUserId

End Function


Thanks for any help

I don't think that you can get that information that way.  Do you have access to Active Directory services?

Include a reference to Active DS TypeLib.

Dim oUser As IADsUser
           
Set oUser = GetObject("WinNT://<domain/name>,user")

sNumber = oUser.TelephoneNumber

This only works if you use this property in Active Directory.

Thanks Dan, it is nice sometimes to be the rewardee, instead of the rewarder.
