This is a question about how Outlook stores address information. When I view the Contacts folder, I see 2 columns: Country/Region and BusinessAddressCountry. Sometime the have the same value, sometimes they are different. I have 2 questions:

1. What determines if a Contact's value for its country is saved in Country/Region or in BusinessAddressCountry?

2. How do I access the Country/Region field in VBA? For BusinessAddressCountry, I use [expression].BusinessAddressCountry. But for Country/Region, the "/" character in the fieldname is invalid.

That is the country from the mailing address - which is most likely also the business address.

Same contact - two different country settings. When i change which field is the mailing address, it changes in the Country/Region field in the view.
