How to Map Meeting Location Directly within Outlook? RRS feed

    Hi All,

    I am trying to Map Meeting Location Directly within Outlook  following this example:


    the map is not launched, 

    Firstly, I got compile time error on the line of "Dim objWordDocument As Word.Document"  , so I think that is my word issue, so I remove this line of codes (I don't think I need it),

    then the code is running well, but nothing happened, the Google map is not launched at all.

    I debugged the code, and found that  this line code: strMeetingLocation = Replace(strMeetingLocation , " ", "-")     may cause the problem, so I remove it,

    and find the location of my calendar are passed in properly, and if I  manually run the code http://maps.google.com/maps?q=  strMeetingLocation from my browser, the google map is opened with no problem, but it does not work within the code,

    Does anybody know why?

    Much appreciated,

    This is a client side solution which won't work on the server side (and is perhaps a bit outdated).

    For now it seems you want a client side add-in so it should be rather https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/add-ins/ (and the market place likely provide this already even free, apparently there is a Bing Maps add-in)
