    Commercial Applications (Outlook/VBA/VB Script)

    I'm not sure if this is the appropriate place for this post, but I am in the process of developing some custom Outlook forms and VBA code that I would like to market on my web site and I have some commercial questions regarding how to make sure I respect Microsoft copyrights and licensing agreements. Is this the best place to post those kinds of questions or is there a better place in the Lounge or another forum I should check out?

    If you wrote all the VBA code yourself, that part should be okay. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> If you need to include ActiveX controls

    Thanks for your post! Not sure what you mean by "if you wrote all the VBA code yourself" - I wrote some of it and I used a contractor for some of it and as part of our contract I own the rights to that code. I did get some direction and ideas for some of my code from the Microsoft Knowledge base - is that a problem?

    The answer to your last question depends, in part, on whether MSKB code is free to use. (I haven't looked.) If not, then "how much is too much" is a matter of degree, and the details may differ from country to country. It's not appropriate to give legal advice in a public forum, so that's about all I can say.
