    Outlook VBA (2003 and 2007)

    Has outlook vba programming in 2003 and 2007 improved much over earlier versions? I've always steered clear of it as it seems to be very user unfriendly. In earlier versions we didn't have control over all the objects or dialogs that were accessible by the user, and we were limited by having one project available in any one session. Unlike Word or Excel. Does anyone have any comments ?

    VBA in Outlook 2003 has just a few additions and changes compared with earlier versions, but Outlook 2007 introduces some significant new and changed features. There are some improvements, but it's still limited and unfriendly compared with VBA for Word, Excel and Access.

    Thank you for your very informative answer Hans. I appreciate your prompt reply. I think I'll stay away from vba and Outlook (at this stage anyway) - Word and Excel keep me stressed enough!
