Hi,

I have 4000 contacts in a database. I want to transfer them to contact folder by one of the function in my add-in. But it seems only allow 249 contacts to be added to the Outlook contact folder. When the number exceed 249, it comes up an error. How can I solve this problem?

Thanks,

Danny Huang

See if this covers the problem:

If not, for sure the error message would be important to know.

Have you tested whether it's caused by a certain contact?

Now I do it 200 contacts at the time, Click Load button, load 200 contacts,

then click button again to load next 200. Then all 4000 contacts can be

loaded to Contacts folder. But I need to click button 20 times.

It is definitely not caused by a certain contact. It's some limit in

Outlook.

Thanks,

Danny

Yes, there can be a limit. And I've never seen that my example does not

overcome that issue. Have you by any chance modified the example?
