I have code that creates a Task Item for the currently active Contact.

I want to embed a link (VCF?) to the currently active Contact Item in the

Body of the Task.

I have a programmatic reference to the Contact Item...just now sure how to

do the copy / paste of a reference to that Item into the Task.Body field.

Thanks,

Save the contact as a vCard (ContactItem.SaveAs..., olVCard), then read the

file and insert its contents in the task body.

Or simply attach the file as an attachment.

Dmitry,

Thanks very much for the help.

I've got the ContactItem saving as a vcf per your example but it looks like

the "attachments" property is Read-Only. I'm not sure how to

programmatically "save" an attachment to the Task record.
