When I woke up this morning I started outlook again. I was able to "enable macros" and I ran the macro using the combined HomeAddress code you gave me last night.
At first nothing seemed to happen. I thought it failed again. But then slowly Internet Explorer opened up Google Maps with the correct address.
I then exchanged the Zillow URL and it worked too. Fantastic!!
Now I have a couple questions to get these macros in operation.
First, I don't want to use IE. I use Google Chrome as my default browser on a small 30G VirtualBox XP Guest machine. I try to stay away from IE and don't want to have two browsers open at once. In addition, after using Chrome IE runs excrutiatingly slow.
When I open an address using the Outlook Map link it opens in Google Chrome without a problem.
Do you know why the macro needs to open IE ... and ... how I can change it to Chrome?
Second, Now that I have the code working, I need to create separate Buttons for each URL. I do not see a "Save As" command in VBA. How can I save each version as a separate macro?
Similarly, I also need to do address searches at County Tax Offices. Can I use the same search macro for that purpose by swapping out the Tax Office search URL?
Finally, regarding my two other questions from last night.
I reset the Standard Tool Bar to try to regain the create "New Appointment from Contact". It didn't work. I recall creating a custom tool bar some time back. I included the "New Appointment from Contact" button. After that I did some re-arranging of the Actions Menu. It is possible that I deleted the "New Appointment from Contact" command. I don't recall doing it, but that is the only time I can remember seeing it.
I would like it back. Are there any other tools I can use to reset those commands?
And ... Finally finally, Now that I have these brilliant macros, is there a way that I can save them in case I ever have to re-install Outlook? As I said I use Outlook on a Windows XP Virtual Machine. I want a make a back up so that I can reset my setup in case something catastrophic happens to the Virtual Machine. (It has happend in the past)
Diane, I cannot thank you enough for all your help. As I said, this will allow me to be more efficient in my work and thereby be able to help more people. These macros (and the custom form you helped me with earlier) are going to save so much time every day.
With grateful appreciation!
