Dear expert,

Be able to highlight/select several tasks and have an input cell pop up for Company field and in next step this Company field replaces all the info which may have existed in the Company field of the selected tasks.

I don't know about the objects in older versions of outlook as I don't have a copy to test, but here are some adaptations to Rgonzo's code that will work in Office 2010 and newer.

Sub UpdateCompany()
    Dim strCompany As String
    Dim objTask As Outlook.TaskItem
    Dim i As Integer

    strCompany = InputBox("New Company", "Select the new Company name")

    For i = 1 To Outlook.ActiveExplorer.Selection.Count
        Set objTask = Outlook.ActiveExplorer.Selection.Item(i)
        objTask.Companies = strCompany
        objTask.Save
    Next
    
    MsgBox Outlook.ActiveExplorer.Selection.Count & " task(s) have been update to a new company of " & strCompany
    
End Sub
       

Open in new window
