HI, the following code extracts the email addresses of everyone in my Outlook.

However, all it does is extract the email addresses - I need it to also extract the display name beside the email address.

This is just code that I have pasted into a notepad file and saved as 'extract.vbs' and run on my desktop.

Please assist:

=========================

Dim mailAddr()

Sub AddtoMailArray(addr)
    Dim isFound, arrLen
    isFound = False
    arrLen = getArrLength(mailAddr)
    If arrLen > -1 Then
        For I = 0 To arrLen
            If LCase(addr) = mailAddr(I) Then
                isFound = True
            End If
        Next
    End If
    If isFound = False Then
        ReDim Preserve mailAddr(arrLen + 1)
        mailAddr(arrLen + 1) = LCase(addr)        
    End If
End Sub

Function getArrLength(arr())
    err.clear
    On Error Resume Next    
    getArrLength = UBound(arr)
    if err.number <> 0 then getArrLength = -1
End Function


    Const olFolderSentMail = 5
    Const ForWriting = 2
   
    Dim OutLookApp, fdr, item, re
    Dim cnt
    Dim I
   
    Erase mailAddr
   
    On Error Resume Next
    Set OutLookApp = GetObject(, "Outlook.Application")
    If OutLookApp Is Nothing Then
        Set OutLookApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    End If
    On Error GoTo 0
    Set fdr = OutLookApp.GetNamespace("MAPI").GetDefaultFolder(olFolderSentMail)
    cnt = 0
    For Each item In fdr.Items
               
        For Each re In item.Recipients
            If I = item.Recipients.Count Then
                  tmp = tmp & re.Address
            Else
                  tmp = tmp & re.Address & ", "
            End If
            AddtoMailArray re.Address            
        Next
        cnt = cnt + 1
        tmp = ""       
    Next
   
    FileName = "C:\test1.txt"
   
    Dim fso, file
    Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set file = fso.OpenTextFile(FileName, ForWriting, True)
    If getArrLength(mailAddr) > -1 Then
          For I = 0 To UBound(mailAddr)
                   file.Write mailAddr(I) & vbcrlf
        Next
    End If
    file.Close
    set file = nothing
    set fso = nothing
   
    MsgBox "Done!"

your code...

 For Each re In item.Recipients

re.Adress is the email adress
re.AddressEntry gets the adress entry object
re.Name is the Name (display-name) of the recipient

infos are available in
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\1031\VBAOL11.CHM

(maybe the path is a bit different for your installation)
