pidLidCleanGlobalObjectId property for Outlook on MAC RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone know how we can achieve the pidLidCleanGlobalObjectId canonical property for Outlook on MAC. We are developing an application and this is an important dependency.

    Any advice/ inputs/ pointers will be highly appreciated.

  • Hello Ravi,

    As far as I know Office 2008 for the Mac OS cannot be automated with VBA, only AppleScript can be used. Office 2011 for the Mac OS can be automated via VBA or AppleScript. But I am not sure whether Extended MAPI (or any equivalent) exists for MACs. The current forum is for Windows-based developers. That is why I would recommend asking such question in the Office for Mac forums instead.

    You can find a sample code (for Windows) in the Creating a Recurring Appointment With MAPI article.
