Import contact from Microsoft Outlook in .net project

Hello all,

I was feeding a combo box from an access dbase with this code:

 Dim sSQL3 As String
        Dim oConnect3 As ADODB.Connection
        oConnect3 = New ADODB.Connection
        Dim oRST3 As ADODB.Recordset
        oRST3 = New ADODB.Recordset


        sSQL3 = "SELECT DISTINCT[Name]FROM [Clients]'"

        oConnect3.Open("Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;" & _
        "Data Source=" & Form4.base_de_donnee.Text)

        Me.client.Items.Add("")
        oRST3.Open(sSQL3, oConnect3)

        If Not oRST3.EOF Then
            oRST3.MoveFirst()
            Do Until oRST3.EOF
                Me.client.Items.Add(oRST3("Name").Value)
                oRST3.MoveNext()
            Loop

        End If
        Exit Sub
MyErrHandler:
        MsgBox("Connectez-vous sur votre base de données la plus à jour.", _
        vbCritical, _
        "Connection à la basse de donnée Access")
        Me.Close()
        Form4.Show()

Open in new window


But now, i would like to know if i can feed it from my contact list from Outlook, instead of always exporting it in access?

This was to feed my combo box but after, i was having a button to put out the rest of the information from that contact into diffrent text box like this:

Dim sSQL1 As String
        Dim oRST1 As ADODB.Recordset
        oRST1 = New ADODB.Recordset
        Dim oConnect1 As ADODB.Connection
        oConnect1 = New ADODB.Connection


        oConnect1.Open("Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;" & _
       "Data Source=" & Form4.base_de_donnee.Text)


        sSQL1 _
                = " SELECT [Name],[Phone],[Email]" _
                & " FROM [Clients]" _
                & " WHERE Name = '" & client.Text & "'"

        oRST1.Open(sSQL1, oConnect1)

        If oRST1.BOF = False Then

            If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty("Name") Then
                oRST1.Filter = "Name = '" & client.Text & "'"

                'Phone
                telephone.Text = oRST1.Fields.Item(1).Value.ToString

                'Email
                courriel.Text = oRST1.Fields.Item(2).Value.ToString

            End If
        End If

Open in new window


Thanks again for your help.

I have found this code but it only open the first outlook contact, directly in Outlook.

I want to populate my combobox or could be a list box and see all my contact.

 ' Create Outlook application.
        Dim oApp As Outlook.Application = New Outlook.Application()

        ' Get NameSpace and Logon.
        Dim oNS As Outlook.NameSpace = oApp.GetNamespace("mapi")
        oNS.Logon("Outlook", Missing.Value, False, True) ' TODO:

        ' Get the first contact from the Contacts folder.
        Dim cContacts As Outlook.MAPIFolder = oNS.GetDefaultFolder(Outlook.OlDefaultFolders.olFolderContacts)
        Dim oItems As Outlook.Items = cContacts.Items

        Dim oCt As Outlook.ContactItem

        Try

            oCt = oItems.GetFirst()


            ' Display some common properties.
            Console.WriteLine(oCt.FullName)
            Console.WriteLine(oCt.Title)
            Console.WriteLine(oCt.Birthday)
            Console.WriteLine(oCt.CompanyName)
            Console.WriteLine(oCt.Department)
            Console.WriteLine(oCt.Body)
            Console.WriteLine(oCt.FileAs)
            Console.WriteLine(oCt.Email1Address)
            Console.WriteLine(oCt.BusinessHomePage)
            Console.WriteLine(oCt.MailingAddress)
            Console.WriteLine(oCt.BusinessAddress)
            Console.WriteLine(oCt.OfficeLocation)
            Console.WriteLine(oCt.Subject)
            Console.WriteLine(oCt.JobTitle)


        Catch

            Console.WriteLine("an error occurred")

        Finally

            ' Display
            'oCt.Display(True)

            ListView1 = oCt.FullName.ToString
            ' Log off.
            oNS.Logoff()

            ' Clean up.
            oApp = Nothing
            oNS = Nothing
            oItems = Nothing
            oCt = Nothing

        End Try

After this


Dim oItems As Outlook.Items = cContacts.Items

        Dim oCt As Outlook.ContactItem


try this

For Each oCt in oItems
     Console.Writeline(oCt.FullName)
     'OR
     Combobox1.Items.Add(oCt.FullName)
Next

Oh perfect for :

For Each oCt in oItems
     Console.Writeline(oCt.FullName)
     'OR
     Combobox1.Items.Add(oCt.FullName)
Next

Open in new window


Now i just need to fix the second part.

If   Combobox1.Items =  ? then
courriel.value = oCt.Email1Address

but i cant make it work.
