Outlook 2003 - Set Virables via command line

I'm trying to create a VBA script that will be executed via the command line (I'm integrating into another application, it's my only option)

What I would like to do is create a VBA script that will have it's variables set via the command line, but cannot find the code. Is it possible?

more or less something along the lines of :

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Outlook.exe" /c ipm.note /altvba otmfilename -v1=string or ?v1=string

Is something like this possible by defining it in the subroutines?

eg. Sub CreateOutlookTask(v1 as String)

The main idea is to pull variables from my other application in the command line, define the settings and have the VBA auto-populate the information to/from and use an HTML template inserted as the body.

Any ideas, is it even possible?

Of course, could enter manually, but am trying to limit user interface to a minimum.

I don't think it possible with a command line. You could have a public

method in the Application object, and call that from outside:

private m_v$

Public Sub Whatever(v$)

m_v=v

End Sub

And call it this way:

Dim obj as Object

Set obj=CreateObject("Outlook.Application")

obj.Whatever "hallo"
