Dear Experts,

How can I create a vcard from Access with out saving the object in outlook?

I basically want to save the v-card in a folder for use later on rather than having the contact added to my outlook.

These will get saved in "C:\Users\Public\Documents\Marketing Collateral"

Can anybody help?

a vcard is just a text file. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VCard.

Thanks for the tip - have managed to crack it - code below

Function PrintVCard(vcInfo As String, flName As String)
    Open flName For Output As #1    ' Open file for output.
    Print #1, vcInfo
    Close #1
End Function
Private Sub GenerateVCard_Click()

Dim MobileString4Vcard As String
Dim DLString4Vcard As String

If Me.[Card-Mobile Y/N] = True Then
MobileString4Vcard = ""
Else
MobileString4Vcard = Me.[Gen-Mobile]
End If

If Me.[Card-Directline Y/N] = True Then
DLString4Vcard = Me.[Card-Switchboard]
Else
DLString4Vcard = Me.[Gen-DirectLine]
End If


Dim flName As String

flName = Application.CurrentProject.Path & Me.[Fold-General] & "\" & Me.[Gen-FullName] & ".vcf"
Dim vcInfo As String
vcInfo = "BEGIN:VCARD" & vbCrLf
vcInfo = vcInfo & "VERSION: 3.0" & vbCrLf
vcInfo = vcInfo & "N: " & Me.[Gen-LastName] & ";" & Me.[Gen-FirstName] & vbCrLf
vcInfo = vcInfo & "FN:" & Me.[Gen-FirstName] & " " & Me.[Gen-LastName] & vbCrLf
vcInfo = vcInfo & "ORG:XXXXXXX" & vbCrLf
vcInfo = vcInfo & "TITLE:" & Me.[Gen-JobTitle] & vbCrLf
vcInfo = vcInfo & "TEL;TYPE=WORK,VOICE: " & DLString4Vcard & vbCrLf
vcInfo = vcInfo & "TEL;TYPE=CELL,VOICE: " & MobileString4Vcard & vbCrLf
vcInfo = vcInfo & "URL;WORK:" & Me.[CardURL2] & vbCrLf
vcInfo = vcInfo & "ADR;TYPE=WORK:;; " & Me.[Card-VOffice Address] & vbCrLf
vcInfo = vcInfo & "EMAIL;PREF;INTERNET:" & Me.[Gen-WorkEmail] & vbCrLf
vcInfo = vcInfo & "END:VCARD"
Call PrintVCard(vcInfo, flName)
End Sub
