I use the code below to get the contact list from Outlook.  It works except when the user is on an exchange server.

If the user is on an exchange server it does not return any data.

Please Help!

Thanks,

============== Code ==============

Option Explicit

Dim objFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
Dim objApp As Outlook.Application
Dim objNS As Outlook.NameSpace
Dim objItem As Outlook.ContactItem
Dim colAdressFolders As Collection


Private Sub Command1_Click()

Dim lngLoop As Long

Set objApp = New Outlook.Application
Set objNS = objApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")
Set colAdressFolders = New Collection
Set objFolder = objNS.Folders.GetFirst ' get root-folder
' recursive loop thrue all folders to collect the references to Adressbooks

For lngLoop = 1 To objFolder.Folders.Count
    If objFolder.Folders.Item(lngLoop).DefaultItemType = olContactItem Then
        RecursiveSearch objFolder.Folders.Item(lngLoop), colAdressFolders
    End If
Next lngLoop

For Each objFolder In colAdressFolders
    For lngLoop = 1 To objFolder.Items.Count
        Set objItem = objFolder.Items(lngLoop)
        MsgBox objItem.EntryID & "  " & objItem.FullName
    Next
Next

End Sub

Private Sub RecursiveSearch(objSubFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder, colAdrFolders As Collection)
 
Dim lngLoop As Long

If objSubFolder.Items.Count > 0 Then
    'add reference to collection
    colAdrFolders.Add objSubFolder
End If
 
If objSubFolder.Folders.Count > 0 Then
    For lngLoop = 1 To objSubFolder.Folders.Count
        If objFolder.Folders.Item(lngLoop).DefaultItemType = olContactItem Then
            RecursiveSearch objSubFolder.Folders.Item(lngLoop), colAdrFolders
        End If
    Next lngLoop
End If

End Sub
