I would like my macro to activate Outlook Contacts if Outlook is currently running with that folder, and if not, I'd like to start another instance of Outlook so that it opens in the Contacts folder.

I've been successful with:

If Tasks.Exist("Contacts") Then
Tasks("Contacts").Activate
Tasks("Contacts").WindowState = wdWindowStateNormal

That bring Outlook Contacts to the fore whether it was minimized or not.

What must I add to the command where I launch another instance of Outlook to ensure that the Contact folder is open?

Or is there a better method to use for this?

Thanks.
