The following code creates a new contact from my form but it will not save and the error is that the parameter value is not valid....what can we do to fix this please?

Sub OpenMyContact()
Dim oContact As outlook.contactItem
Dim oFolder As outlook.MAPIFolder
Set oFolder = Application.Session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderContacts)
Set oContact = oFolder.Items.Add("IPM.Contact.Contact Form 1.")
oContact.Display
End Sub

And I found this code that creates it and can save, but not related to my type of contact form I want to use...so, do we change this or the other?

Public Function StartOutLook()
On Error GoTo StartOutLook_Error
Dim spObj As Object, MyItem As Object
' Create a Microsoft OutLook object.
Set spObj = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
' Create and open new contact form for input.
' You can substitute olAppointmentItem, olJournalItem, olMailItem,
' olNoteItem, olPostItem, or olTaskItem for olContactItem.
Set MyItem = spObj.CreateItem(olContactItem)
MyItem.Display
' Quit Microsoft Outlook.
Set spObj = Nothing
Exit Function
StartOutLook_Error:
MsgBox "Error: " & Err & " " & Error
Exit Function
End Function

To All If This Helps:

I just took the dot . after the number 1 off and it fixed it...so the first code works to my form

Set oContact = oFolder.Items.Add("IPM.Contact.Contact Form 1.")
