Set "Assigned To" for a Contact Item

Koops

I have a custom contact item form that I would like to set the

"Assigned To" field on. It's not part of the ContactItem object model

so I think I have to use the PropertyAccessor.

Here is my code:

Set oItem = oApp.CreateItemFromTemplate("C:\Contact.oft", oFolder)

schemaN = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/mapi/proptag/x0e04001f"

Set oPA = oItem.PropertyAccessor

oPA.SetProperty schemaN, "Eric"

I receive the error:

The property "http://schemas.microsoft.com/mapi/proptag/x0e04001f"

cannot be parsed or has an invalid format

Does anyone know if I'm on the right track here or how to do this

another way?

Thanks for your help

Where do you get Assigned To from, and where did you find that property tag?

Is this similar to assigning a task to someone? For that you have the Owner

and Delegator properties, not assigned to. Both of those properties are in

the "{00062003-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}" namespace, along with most task

named properties.

I was given a custom form which is a contact item, and it had

"Assigned To" on it, which behaves exactly how it does on a Task

Form. When I looked at the "All Fields" tab and look under "All Task

Fields" there is a property called "Assigned To".

I think it's part of the recipient object though. I don't think it's

the Owner property that will help. I'm not that familiar with the

Delegator one though.

I'm not sure how to use "{00062003-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}" -

I'll have to do some research on it.

That namespace I mentioned ("{00062003-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}") is

what's used by Outlook for task properties that aren't standard on a task

item (named properties).

That 0x0E04001F property tag you originally specified would correcpond to

PR_DISPLAY_TO_W, the Unicode equivalent to the To property. That might work

as an assigned to property in some cases but it wouldn't be foolproof. The

properties I mentioned would be a better choice.

I'm not sure how to use the {00062003-0000-0000-C00-000000000046} is

it that I just change my Schema to it and away I go?

Thanks,

No, you would use it in conjunction with other text to form a complete DASL

property tag. On its own it wouldn't mean anything. For example, you can

access the DelegationState PT_LONG (32 bit long) property using this string

(not a URL):

"http://schemas.microsoft.com/mapi/id/{00062003-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}/812A0003"

Without knowing the property you want to access the namespace (that Guid

string) is useless. And if you want to access a property such as Owner,

Ownership, DelegationState or Delegator that are exposed in the object model

you just use the property name and don't need to fool around with MAPI or

DASL property tags.
