I am programming in VBA

Several users are using Outlook in a network environment. Each of them hat

its own 'Contacts'. They have shared their addresslists so that I can lookup

en change the contacts fields from my workstation.

I would like to access these Contactlists by using VBA. Therefor, i found

via the help function some code and tried to open the contact of a user

called 'DE DAUW' and whose contacts I can see in the 'Other Contacts'.

Impossible to get into the 'DE DAUW' addresslist.

Who can help me ?

Dim MyApp As Outlook.Application

Dim MyNameSpace As Outlook.Namespace

Dim MyFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder

Dim MyItemsCollection As Object

Dim myItem As Object

Dim MyMatchingItem As Object

Dim myNewFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder

Dim myAddressLists As AddressLists

Dim myAddressList As AddressList

Set MyApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")

Set MyNameSpace = MyApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")

MyNameSpace.Logon

Set MyFolder = MyNameSpace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderContacts)

Set myNewFolder =

MyNameSpace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderContacts).Folders(1)

Set myAddressLists = MyNameSpace.AddressLists("DE DAUW")

Debug.Print

Debug.Print "MyfolderPath:" & myNewFolder.FolderPath

Debug.Print "Myfolder:" & MyFolder.Name, "MyNewFolder:" & myNewFolder.Name

Look at the Namespace.GetSharedDefaultFolder method.
