1. Does anyone know if the Outlook Contact Object has a "last accessed"

date-time property (and where I can find info about it)?

2. I'm trying to find out which contacts were accessed by users within the

last 2 years. My objective is to make the main address book smaller, and

move the remaining contacts somewhere else, so that user can get them if s/he

needs them. Does anyone have any suggestions where I could read about this

type of project?

Thanks,

MarceepooNu

Outlook records a date/time only if the contact was modified, not just if

someone looked at it or used it to send a message. There is no tracking

mechanism that would provide the kind of information you want.

The details of building an add-in to start collecting that information would

depend on the Outlook version and exactly what "the main address book" is.

In most organizations, it's the Exchange GAL, not an Outlook contacts

folder.

Re: Outlook Contact Object: Is there a "last accessed" date-time p

Thank you. It is so nice of you to help so many people, as you do.

I have a follow-up question for you (below). If this is not the appropriate

place for me to pose the question, I would be very grateful if you would tell

me how to contact you privately, if you would be willing to allow me to

purchase some of your time.

I was trying out Listing 16.5 in your Jumpstart book, and I got it to run.

(It felt like a great achievement.)

A: I haven't been able to figure out how to modify it so that I could get

the search to return all emails containing:

1. strAddress01 OR strAddress02 OR strAddress03

2. (strAddress01 AND strAddress02) OR strAddress03

3. strAddress01 AND strAddress02 but not strAddress03

B: I'm not sure how to use regular expressions in this search context, but I

confess that I haven't tried yet.

Question(s): Where can I find examples of A1 through A3?

> ..examples of the use of regular expressions in that

search context?

Thanks again,

Marc

Re: Outlook Contact Object: Is there a "last accessed" date-time p

In a search query, each expression that you want to OR or AND together needs

to be a complete expression that can return a True/False value, e.g.

property_name = some_value (and if it's a string or date property, you

need quotation marks around the value). Your examples below include only the

value being searched for, not the property name that you want to search.

You still didn't say what version of Outlook you're using.

Regular expressions are not relevant to this scenario. They would be useful

only for searching within a block of text.
