Greetings all,

I have built some pretty nice VBA macros for Outlook 2007. I was wondering

if you could give me some idea on how difficult it will be to convert these

to Addins. Also can I do this with VB 6 or VB .Net 2003?

Maybe some step by step tutorials for converting VBA to an addin or other

references would help.

Sorry for the general question.. Just trying to get a feel for the process

before shelling out the money to buy VS. [I currently have VB 6 and VS .Net

2003 Pro]

VS 2003 uses Framework 1.1, I'd not bother using it these days when far less

buggy versions are out there. VB6 can certainly be used and the conversion

curve is far easier since that and VBA are very closely related.

I've never seen any step by step guide for a conversion, you basically just

implement the IDTExtensibilty interface in your Connect module and the VBA

code can pretty much be copied and pasted into the addin.

You might want to look at the VB6 addin template I have up at

http://www.slovaktech.com/outlook_2007_templates.htm. That gives you a

framework to start with.
