Can someone please explain to me how to use the built in command SaveasOutlookContact? How does it know which Access fields are mapped to which contact fields? I can get some to map, but not others.

Thank you!
Bret

Thanks, but that's not what I'm looking for. Access 2007, through it's VBA interface, has a built in function for adding a Outlook contact from data. I would appreicate someone who has had experience with this function telling me how (or where I can find) to use it.

Thanks!

I understand that, but how does that command know which fields are mapped to the Outlook Contact Fields? When I do it now, only about 50% of the fields are mapping correctly. Thank you.

bfarris7581,

Are you sure the "SaveasOutlookContact" is exposed in VBA?

When I did this on my machine, everything I needed I found here:
http://www.mydatabasesupport.com/forums/ms-access/377693-a2007-saveasoutlookcontact-won-t-work-linked-tables.html

There is even a link to a demo of the feature in Action.

Sorry, I just figured I would wait. Here is the VBA code that I'm referencing...
Private Sub cmdSaveAsOutlookContact_Click()
On Error GoTo cmdSaveAsOutlookContact_Click_Err
 
    On Error GoTo 0
    DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSaveAsOutlookContact
 
 
cmdSaveAsOutlookContact_Click_Exit:
    Exit Sub
 
cmdSaveAsOutlookContact_Click_Err:
    MsgBox Error$
    Resume cmdSaveAsOutlookContact_Click_Exit

Open in new window

I am not at my 2007 machine.

Is that code working for you?

Thanks
