Outlook Command

Was looking for some code to add a Receipent to the Contacts List, and changing it up a bit to have some code that would add the Sender to the Contacts List with a category color attached to it.   However, in "blowing off" some old code, this one seemed to fit the Receiptent portion of what was needed, but it keeps erroring out on: "AddQuote."

Sub AddRecipToContacts()
    Dim strFind As String
    Dim strAddress As String
    Dim objNS As Outlook.NameSpace
    Dim colContacts As Outlook.Items
    Dim objContact As Outlook.ContactItem
    Dim objRecip As Outlook.Recipient
    Dim objMail As Outlook.MailItem
    Dim i As Integer
    On Error Resume Next

    If TypeName(Application.ActiveWindow) = "Explorer" Then
        Set objMail = Application.ActiveExplorer.Selection(1)
    ElseIf TypeName(Application.ActiveWindow) = "Inspector" Then
        Set objMail = Application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem
    Else
        Exit Sub
    End If
    ' get Contacts folder and its Items collection
    Set objNS = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set colContacts = _
      objNS.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderContacts).Items

    ' process message recipients
    For Each objRecip In objMail.Recipients
        ' check to see if the recip is already in Contacts
'-----------------------------------------
        strAddress = AddQuote(objRecip.Address)
 '-----------------------------------------     

         For i = 1 To 3
            strFind = "[Email" & i & "Address] = " & _
                      strAddress
            Set objContact = colContacts.Find(strFind)
            If Not objContact Is Nothing Then
                Exit For
            End If
       Next

Open in new window

Does AddQuote belong to an object in the Reference Library, which is not loaded, or is this code for a 2007 version and AddQuote is no longer part of object model?  If not what would take it's place?

Addquote is an oft used USER DEFINED function to simply add a quote keeping the text block tidyas such the original code may have used a different form but I would expect something like:

Function addQuote(str As String)
    addQuote = Chr(34) & str & Chr(34)
End Function

Open in new window

add this to the end of your code and hopefully!

Hi Chris,

Yes, that is what it referred to in this situation.   However, what it provides I can't use, so I had to change the objects around to display what I needed.  But, this cleared the bottleneck.

Thanks...Cook
