Outlook VBA (Address Book): A little help getting started
Posted on 2006-04-30
I'm in the process of migrating to Outlook from Palm Desktop and I have a problem requiring a little automation. On PD, I had my company's entire phonebook as part of my address book. All those addresses (over 1500 of 'em) were in a single category, so I could perform operations on the whole category, such as deleting them to make room for an update.
When I imported my PD address book into Outlook, all my categories were lost, so now I've got thousands of contacts of all sorts intermingled. I'd like to separate out all the company ones based on a piece of text that is in the Address field of the Outlook contact. I figure that VBA probably can do the job easily. I'm very familar with VBA, being an old hand at Excel VBA, but I don't have a handle on the Outlook Object Model.
Could someone post a bit of code to get me going?
