Outlook 2007 Macro RRS feed

  • Question

  • In my new default form of my Contacts, I have a number of ComboBoxs that under the Value, there is the list of the Possible Values.  So when I open up the Contact using my new default form, I have a droplist of words to pick.

    In my new default form for a Task, in the P2 I added the same Comboboxs.

    Is there someway that there is a macro that when I create the task assigned to the contact, I run the macro and it automatically adds the value of the comboboxs on the contact that I pick to the same comboboxs on the task.

    For example, as to one Combobox, here are the following info:

    The Name under Display is "NextStepCombobox1"

    Under the Value, the field that I choose is "Next Step"

    Under the Value, the Type is "Text"

    Under the Value, the List Type is "Dropdown"

    Under the Value, the Property to us is "Value"


    Thanks to all for the support!

    Thanks, but given my background of not this area, I don't know how to do it.

    Are you aware of anyone that does macros for others?

  • Thanks.  I am not the expert in this areas and always just get from others the actual macro to use.

    Can you possibly give me the macro that does this?  I would heavily appreciate it!

  • No one here is going to write your code for you. People will help you but not do your work for you. I provided a link to an article that has suggested sample code and explanations of what you are asking about.
