I would like to know how to migrate Outlook 2010 Journal fields into excel spreadsheet including the contact names.
using the Import/export fucntion, the conatct names, that are linked to the journal note, do not export.
Any special batch file to do?

Thanks for the help

I already did but in my note body there are several lines and the copy paste only gives me the firts line :(
I don't know how macro works though

I'll see if i have a macro we can use. The other option (if it's a one time thing) is to export and copy - this will get you the full notes field and anything not exported. You'll need a unique field (usually the date/time) you can sort on to match the records.

I tweaked the code at http://www.slipstick.com/developer/code-samples/macro-export-outlook-fields-excel/ to use the journal entries.

Code:
Option Explicit
Sub CopyToExcel()
Dim xlApp As Object
Dim xlWB As Object
Dim xlSheet As Object
Dim rCount As Long
Dim bXStarted As Boolean
Dim enviro As String
Dim strPath As String
Dim currentExplorer As Explorer
Dim Selection As Selection
Dim olItem As Outlook.JournalItem
Dim obj As Object
Dim strColB, strColC, strColD, strColE, strColF, strColG, strColH       As String
               
' Get Excel set up
enviro = CStr(Environ("USERPROFILE"))
'the path of the workbook
strPath = enviro & "\Documents\test.xlsx"
     On Error Resume Next
     Set xlApp = GetObject(, "Excel.Application")
     If Err <> 0 Then
         Application.StatusBar = "Please wait while Excel source is opened ... "
         Set xlApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
         bXStarted = True
     End If
     On Error GoTo 0
     'Open the workbook to input the data
     Set xlWB = xlApp.Workbooks.Open(strPath)
     Set xlSheet = xlWB.Sheets("Sheet1")
    ' Process the message record
    
    On Error Resume Next
'Find the next empty line of the worksheet
rCount = xlSheet.Range("B" & xlSheet.Rows.Count).End(-4162).Row
' get the values from outlook
Set currentExplorer = Application.ActiveExplorer
Set Selection = currentExplorer.Selection
  For Each obj In Selection
    Set olItem = obj
   
'collect the fields
' journal
With olItem
    strColB = .Subject
    strColC = .Type
    strColD = .Body
    strColE = .Start
    strColF = .Duration
    strColG = .ContactNames
    strColH = .Categories
End With
'write them in the excel sheet
  xlSheet.Range("B" & rCount) = strColB
  xlSheet.Range("c" & rCount) = strColC
  xlSheet.Range("d" & rCount) = strColD
  xlSheet.Range("e" & rCount) = strColE
  xlSheet.Range("f" & rCount) = strColF
  xlSheet.Range("g" & rCount) = strColG
  xlSheet.Range("h" & rCount) = strColH
 
'Next row
  rCount = rCount + 1
Next
     xlWB.Close 1
     If bXStarted Then
         xlApp.Quit
     End If
    
     Set olItem = Nothing
     Set obj = Nothing
     Set currentExplorer = Nothing
     Set xlApp = Nothing
     Set xlWB = Nothing
     Set xlSheet = Nothing
End Sub

Good morning Diane, it works great, thank you very much. There is one thing I did not realize though, some of my customers have the same exact name. Is there a way where I can add the Company name in another column. I used your codes and added lines for the Company and then tried with the spelling CompanyNames but nothing shows up. I'm trying to find out if that field has another name than what I see. Canb you help me out?
Regards,

use .companies, not .companynames, to grab the company field.
