what's the difference between a script and a macro? the pics seem to not load because of something wrong in a script...

i'm still getting alarming emails from goog - do i need to do something? - thought the upgrade to ol2021 would be enough.

ok, now i'm back at ol2007 via a backup (as i found out i might get around g prob via an app password). but i guess ol2021 had modified the script - now ol2007 doesn't work either. further the script does not seem editable on it. how to edit it, diane?

sorry I missed this - can you post the template (the one with the code changes above)?

not sure what template means - the .oft is earlier in this thread, but opening it i just get the ol default contact form. the script that 2021 screwed up is:

Dim IsLoading

Dim imgPhoto



Function Item_Open()

Dim objPage

IsLoading = True

Set objPage = Item.GetInspector.ModifiedFormPages("General")

Set OlkContactPhoto = objPage.Controls("OlkContactPhoto")

Call LoadPhoto()

Set objPage = Nothing

IsLoading = False

End Function



Function Item_Close()

Set OlkContactPhoto = Nothing

End Function



Sub Item_PropertyChange(ByVal Name)

If Not IsLoading Then

Select Case Name

Case "User1"

Call LoadPhoto()

End Select

End If

End Sub



Sub cmdRefresh_Click()

Call LoadPhoto()

End Sub



Sub LoadPhoto()

If Item.User1 <> "" Then



strphoto = Item.User1.value

item.AddPicture strPhoto



End If

End Sub

now i restored the script to what it used to be on ol2007. 2007 does not let you edit it, but 2016, also in my system, does.

but still not working - i'd changed the form when playing with this. where does ol keep this info? very strange that it did not work from backup either.

where does ol keep this info? how to back it up?

i have it ok on 4/17 back-up, but if i use it, i'll lose the latest emails. ol doesn't seem to adhere to system restore either, and as soon as i use the latest .PSTs i'm screwed...

Is the for published to the contacts folder? If so, you can export it in File > Options > advanced > custom forms.

You have two choices - add a field to the image control or use the photo control.

If you keep your version where you add a path to the photo file field, and add that field name to the image control, click Refresh to see the image.

If you use the contact photo field, you add it using the Picture menu and it shows up in Outlook photo control. Honestly, unless you need to keep a record of the image path, I would use the picture command and the outlook photo control. I don't know of a way to use the picture (OlkContactPhoto1) as the field in the image control (replacing textbox10).

thanks, diane. yes, picture command would be the way to go if i did not have 25k old contacts to deal with.

but i am now sorted by importing the missing mails to a working machine. fyi - custom form resides at the root of the deliver-mails .pst. that's why i failed at first, thought the .psts contain only mails & contacts.

given ol is so brittle - is there an app that would back it up? accts & settings - i know how to deal with .psts.

are the images working in any of the 25K? Do you have a link to an image in all/most and is it valid? Probably the best step is to use a macro to move the images - if the link to the photo is valid, it will be easy to move the images - using the image path field in this macro -

On the form not working and showing the plain outlook form - some controls are blocked, depending on how the form is opened.

now i have a machine where ol-custom form works, but in it the account selection is screwed.

if i moved to another version of ol i'd also have to deal /w the modified dates on the contacts. beyond my skills, and in any case several hours of computing.

and the custom form is NOT on the deliver mails .PST - tried with a backup. where is it? how to back it up - or transfer to another machine? whole system image/restoration takes hours...

is it on the .FDM like i asked on another thread? how to make ol use it?

On the form not working and showing the plain outlook form - some controls are blocked, depending on how the form is opened.
so how to open the custom one to see?
