Per our earlier posts, we created a macro that searches all e-mails to or from the contact that we select or open, and the macro bullet is in the Outlook Toolbx and in the Contact form itself.

But now, it works if the contact is opened, but not where I just select the contact.

The error that shows up is:

The macro error is:

Run-time error '91':

Object variable or With block variable not set.

And when I debug, the line Set oContact = myOlApp.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem is yellowed...'

'

Is there a way to fix this right away?

And the full macro you gave me is:

Sub Search_By_Address_From_and_To()


Dim myOlApp As New Outlook.Application

Dim ns As Outlook.NameSpace

Dim strFilter As String

Dim oContact As Outlook.ContactItem


Set ns = myOlApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")


Set oContact = myOlApp.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem


' use oContact.FullName to search on the name

strFilter = oContact.Email1Address


Set myOlApp.ActiveExplorer.CurrentFolder = ns.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)


txtSearch = "from:" & strFilter & " OR to:" & strFilter

myOlApp.ActiveExplorer.Search txtSearch, olSearchScopeAllFolders


Set myOlApp = Nothing


End Sub

Thanks

Works great. Thanks much.

Is there way to search all contact folders per a phone number.....regardless of whether this is a . or a - between the numbers? Is there a macro to do the search...as adding the business phone field to the criteria area...is tnot working.

As long as the number is not entered in 2025551212 format without separators, try spaces between the numbers - "202 555 1212"

The query would be:

businessphone:"202 555 1212"

It worked here on the first format, I don't have any numbers in the other two formats - Outlook keeps converting them to the first one. I have some that synced from my phone and it won't find them, but i knew it wouldn't because outlook don't do partial word searches starting in the middle of a word.

Outlook treats space, periods and dashes as word separators, so it just sees the numbers.

Is the number in the business phone field? You can't search for a number in any field using that qualifier- use just "202 555 1212" to search all fields - this will find in Notes too.

I just typed "202 555 1212" in the Instant Search field.

Ohhhhh.... you are using Outlook 2007. Let me check on that, I seem to recall Instant Search was lacking.

It's working here... slow as molasses, but it is finding the standard format number.
