Add Contact Link for Appointment Item using Links Collection


G

Guest

I am trying to add a Contact link to an appointment item using the Links collection as previously advised but am lost. My code (see below) adds an appointment item from an Access input form - no problem but I want to add the Contact link in addition to the basic appointment fields. Can anyone help with the code to do this
This code as it stands works so I have included this so you can see what I'm trying to do - I've removed all my failed attempts at including a Contact

Private Sub AddApp_Click(
On Error GoTo AddApp_Er

DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSaveRecor

' Exit the procedure if appointment has been added to Outlook
If Me!AddedToOutlook = True The
MsgBox "This appointment already added to Microsoft Outlook
Exit Su
' Add a new appointment
Els

Dim outobj As Outlook.Applicatio
Dim outappt As Outlook.AppointmentIte

Set outobj = CreateObject("outlook.application"
Set outappt = outobj.CreateItem(olAppointmentItem

With outapp
.Start = Me!ApptDate & " " & Me!ApptTim
.Duration = Me!ApptLengt
.Subject = Me!App
If Not IsNull(Me!ApptNotes) Then .Body = Me!ApptNote
If Not IsNull(Me!ApptLocation) Then .Location =
Me!ApptLocatio
If Me!ApptReminder The
.ReminderMinutesBeforeStart = Me!ReminderMinute
.ReminderSet = Tru
End I
.Sav
End Wit

End I
' Release the Outlook object variable
Set outobj = Nothin
' Set the AddedToOutlook flag, save the record, display a message
Me!AddedToOutlook = Tru
DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSaveRecor
MsgBox "Appointment Added!
Exit Su
AddApp_Err
MsgBox "Error " & Err.Number & vbCrLf & Err.Descriptio
Exit Su
End Sub

I don't see any reference in your code below to the particular contact that
you want to add. You have to return that first using any of the methods
available for creating a new contact or returning an existing one. Then it's
just:

outappt.Links.Add objContact

I have a field on my Access form which holds the name (first and surname) of a previously added Contact, which is also in my Outlook Contacts folder. I want to add this with the Appointment Date, Time etc as I create the Appointment in Outlook but don't know how to set up the code to do it. I guess that I am missing quite a bit from the early part of the code where I am declaring variables etc
How do I set up the objContact in your last suggestion from ContName field on my form?
I have searched in all sorts of places for more help on this but can't find any. Can you help

You would have to use the MAPIFolder.Items.Find method to search for the
contact using the first and last name. A better approach might be to store
the contact's EntryID in the database table. With that, you can look it up
directly using the Namespace.GetItemFromID method.
