Accessing Global Address List details with VBA

I have code that reads names from a local Distribution List and looks up the

name in the Global Address List. The purpose is to retrieve a few of the

details about the user that appear in the properties dialog box ... such as

Street Address, City and State.

My problem is that I only have Outlook 2003 which apparently does not have

the GetExchangeUser object. How can I retrieve these pieces of information

without the GetExchangeUser object?

Here is my code so far ... which works as long as I have manually selected

my local Distribution List. Thanks in advance for any help.

Dim olkDL As Outlook.DistListItem

Dim olkEntry As Outlook.Recipient

Dim olkContact As Outlook.ContactItem

Dim intCount As Integer

Dim strAddress As String

Dim strName As String

Dim oApp As Outlook.Application

Dim oNS As Outlook.NameSpace

Dim oALs As Outlook.AddressLists

Dim oGal As Outlook.AddressList

Dim oEntries As Outlook.AddressEntries

Dim oEntry As Outlook.AddressEntry

Dim x As Long

Set oApp = Outlook.Application

' Get the MAPI namespace.

Set oNS = oApp.Session

' Get the Global Address List.

Set oALs = oNS.AddressLists

Set oGal = oALs.Item("Global Address List")

' Get all the entries.

Set oEntries = oGal.AddressEntries

' Get the first user.

Set oEntry = oEntries.GetFirst()

'Get the currently selected distribution list'

Set olkDL = Application.ActiveExplorer.Selection(1)

For intCount = 1 To olkDL.MemberCount

Set olkEntry = olkDL.GetMember(intCount)

For x = 1 To oEntries.Count

strName = olkEntry.AddressEntry.Name

If oEntry.Name = strName Then

Debug.Print oEntry.Name & ";" & oEntry.Address

GoTo NextIntCount

End If

Set oEntry = oEntries.GetNext

Next x

NextIntCount:

Next intCount

Set olkEntry = Nothing

Set olkDL = Nothing

You will either need to use Extended MAPI (C++ or Delphi only), CDO 1.21

(not installed by default, use AddressEntry.Fields[]) or use Redemption

(RDOAddresEntry - see
