Hi Guys,

Sorry if this is the wrong forum for posting, couldn't find a vbscripting

forum for outlook. Anyway, here goes with my problem. I have some vbscript

which creates a task in outlook from my database program.

Const olTaskItem = 3

Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")

Set objTask = objOutlook.CreateItem(olTaskItem)

objTask.Subject = "Schedul a Task"

objTask.Body = "Blah blah blah."

objTask.ReminderSet = True

objTask.ReminderTime = #27/01/2010 12:00 PM#

objTask.DueDate = #27/01/2010 12:00 PM#

objTask.ReminderPlaySound = True

objTask.ReminderSoundFile = "C:\Windows\Media\Ding.wav"

objTask.Save

The code above creates a task fine in my system. However what I would like

is some script to retrieve the unique outlook id of the task created and save

the details in a text file which I can script an import and parse the data

through into my database.

Any help would be much appreciated -

Kind regards

After you call objTask.Save, return objTask.EntryID and save it to a field

in the database record. You can then use that value later with the

Namespace.GetItemFromID method to retrieve the item.
