Outlook, add/modify contacts with MAPI (Delphi7)

Hi

I have an application that synchronizes data from a database with the contacts of outlook. That's ok. Now I have an installation with more than one profile in outlook and I have to sync. with only one of them. I tried it with "MapiLogon" but I don't know how to implement it. Can somebody help please?

With my code I have the following result (two profiles, "outlook" and "Test"):
Outlook not startet or profile "Test" started: the contacts are modified in profile "Test" (correct)
Outlook with profile "outlook" stated: the contacts are modified/added in profile "outlook" (wrong).

My code (only the part to select the profile):
      OutlookApp := CreateOleObject('Outlook.Application');
      try
        Mapi := OutlookApp.GetNameSpace('MAPI');
        if MapiLogOn(0,PAnsiChar('Test'),'',MAPI_NEW_SESSION,0,@hSession) <> 0 then
        begin
          result := 0;
          Exit;
        end;
        FormicaContacts := MAPI;
        ...

Any ideas? Thanks, Peter

Hi, formi.

I don't know Delphi, but I can show you the correct way to do this using VB.  If you know VB, then hopefully you could translate that into Delphi.  Would that help?

Peter,

Here's the code.  This sample assumes that Outlook is not running.  Keep in mind that Outlook can only open one profile at a time.  It cannot open two different profiles.
Dim olkApp, olkSes
Set olkApp = CreateApplication("Outlook.Application")
Set olkSes = olkApp.GetNameSpace("MAPI")
olkSes.Logon "Test"

Open in new window
