    Hi,

    I would like to have on one of my form a button, that when clicking on
    it, the Oulook "Select Item" window opens 'using a code of course, in
    order to select a specific outlook message.
    Then either the message is saved as OFT file on the hard-drive at the
    server (where the DB is stored) or the message is stored within the
    database as an object.

    Does any one have an idea how to do it?

    Thanks,

    Gersonia.

    Hi Gersonia,

    This is much more complex than you may think - is Outlook set up with a pst?
    Ost? Exchange? Where will the files go? To a server share? Local drive? This
    is not something I've played with, but I imagine it probably can be done.
    Look into the Outlook Object Library functions, and you might find something
    at slipstick.com - Sue Mosher has tons of stuff there on Outlook that might
    help.

    To give you an idea of what you're up against, take a look at the first half
    of this page, setting tasks in Outlook to work with Access:
    http://www.vb123.com/toolshed/05_docs/outlooktasks.htm

    If you do find a solution I'd love to learn it as well!

    Good luck,

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
