Hello,

We have a remote user who would like to be able to use our Global Address Book from his remote location, using Outlook. He uses dial-in at home with a yahoo email address through Outlook.

Is there a way that I can easily export our global address book, send it to him over email, and then get him to import it into his Outlook contacts?

This is bearing in mind that the user in question is a technophobe and anything beyond a few clicks will horribly confuse him.

Many thanks for any help you can offer,

Hi gjirvine3000,

cut and paste this code into a .vbs file... then once run you will be able to open the csv file and leave for him just the name and e-mail address. send hime that and get him to import via .... file import export > import from program or file > tab delimited.... etc

Const Writable      = 2

Set objFSO           = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objLog          = objFSO.OpenTextFile("c:\proxydump.csv", Writable, True)
Set cn               = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set cm               = CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
Set rs               = CreateObject("ADODB.RecordSet")


With cn
     .Provider     = "ADsDSOObject"
     .Open "Active Directory Provider"
End With

Set cm.ActiveConnection = cn

strDomainDN          = InputBox("Please Enter the Servername and Domain DN. " & vbCrLf & " Example: Myserver/DC=test,DC=lab ")

cm.CommandText = "<LDAP://" & strDomainDN & ">;(&(objectCategory=user)(proxyAddresses=*));distinguishedName,mail,proxyAddresses;subtree"
cm.Properties("Page Size") = 1000

Set rs               = cm.Execute


While Not rs.EOF

     On Error Resume Next
     strUserDN     = rs.Fields("distinguishedName")
     strProxyAddress = rs.Fields("proxyAddresses")

     objLog.Write strUserDN
     objLog.Write ","
 
     For Each Item in strProxyAddress
          strTempAddr = Item
          objLog.Write Item & ";"
     Next

     objLog.Write vbCrLf
