I’m using the Microsoft View Control for office.  The default view is the email, is there any way to change the control view to be the Address Book instead of email?

I know you can do
ViewCtl1.Address Book
And it will pop up the Address Book in another window.  But what I would like to change the default view to the address book.

Any help will be appreciated.

I think there is a constant (olFolderContacts) for the adress book.

For example:

Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set objNamespace = objOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI")
Set objFolder = objNamespace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderContacts)

Take a look at:
