    Record a Macro (outlook 2000)

    I am a big fan of the feature of MS Excel and Word which allow you to use TOOLS MACRO RECORD
    Is there any way to add this to Outlook ? I went through the tool bar offerings but under macro there is nothing ?

    Nope. And to boot, Outlook VBA is very idiosyncratic - if you don't know already how it works, it's virtually impossible to find out from the help files <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    Hans, thank you for the input, I posted on the VB board as well, I made a Macro in MS WORD, exported to .bas file
    and imported into Outlook, but it failed <img src=/S/bwaaah.gif border=0 alt=bwaaah width=123 height=15> . I also made the assumption VB was VB and now after reading your
    post, I am again wrong. <img src=/S/brickwall.gif border=0 alt=brickwall width=25 height=15>

    Re: Record a Macro (outlook 2000)

    The underlying VBA language is the same for all Office applications: you can use constructs such as If ... Then ... Else ... End If and For ... Next in each of them.

    But of necessity, each application has its own object model on top of this common basis, with objects, properties, methods and events that are specific to that application:

    Word has documents, paragraphs, words etc.
    Excel has workbooks, worksheets, cells etc.
    Access has tables, queries, forms etc.
    PowerPoint has presentations, slides, text boxes etc.
    Outlook has e-mails, appointments, tasks etc.

    Code that uses these specific objects will only work in its own application - Excel does not know what a paragraph is, and Word does not know what a slide is, etc.

    Thank you, perhaps someone good in VB out there will write me one that will work and I can import it into my outlook ?
    I do not have any books on Visual Basic. I do appreciate the input anyway .... sincerely Richard

    I'll lock this thread now, no point in having two threads about the same subject.
    Anyone wanting to reply, please do so in the thread starting at <post:=554,894>post 554,894</post:> in the VBA forum.
