    Set default Address Book in Outlook (Word 2002)

    How do I set which address book shows up by default when inserting an address from Outllook? I am using a VBA macro which uses GetAddress. It works fine and gives me all of the various addressbooks which are set as "email address books" in Outlook properties. Problem is I would like our Firm Shared Address Book to come up by default. I have researched MANY posts here but haven't found the answer.

    I'll assume you've been to the VBA forum and searched for Getaddress (or InsertAddress) there. If you have, you'll discover that no one has yet found a reliable way to do this. For a while I used the questionable "Sendkeys" technique, but that quickly fizzles when the address book list changes. You can try to futzy with the order of the address books in Outlook, but that doesn't work either. Unless MS has done something about it in Word 2003 (which I doubt since the VBA in 2003 is still VBA 6), you'll probably meet with the same success as those who failed before you.
