|VBOffice Reporter is an easy to use tool for data analysis and reporting in Outlook. A single click, for instance, allows you to see the number of hours planned for meetings the next month.|
If you have two contacts in the same company, Outlook stores the company name twice. If you want to change the company name, you have to do that for each contact in that company.
If you have Outlook XP or newer, this example does the work for you. Once, all the contacts are found, you may also change other properties, of course.
Public Sub ChangeCompanyName() Dim sSearch As String Dim sFolder As String sFolder = "Contacts" sSearch = InputBox("Company:") If Len(sSearch) Then sSearch = "urn:schemas:contacts:o = '" & sSearch & "'" Application.AdvancedSearch sFolder, sSearch End If End Sub Private Sub Application_AdvancedSearchComplete(ByVal SearchObject As Outlook.Search) If SearchObject.Results.Count Then ChangeNames SearchObject.Results End If End Sub Private Sub ChangeNames(Results As Outlook.Results) Dim obj As Object Dim oContact As Outlook.ContactItem Dim sNew As String Dim i As Long sNew = InputBox("New Name:") If Len(sNew) Then For i = Results.Count To 1 Step -1 Set obj = Results(i) If TypeOf obj Is Outlook.ContactItem Then Set oContact = obj oContact.CompanyName = sNew oContact.Save End If Next End If End Sub
|Determine the "identity" of your emails. Set with SAM the sender and the folder folder for sent items with the help of rules.|
This sample replaces a part of the email address of each contact in the current folder. The variable 'Find' holds the part you want to replace, the variable 'ReplaceBy' holds the new value.
Public Sub ChangeDomainInEmailAddresses() Dim Items As Outlook.Items Dim Contact As Outlook.ContactItem Dim obj As Object Dim Find As String Dim ReplaceBy As String Find = "@domain.de" ReplaceBy = "@domain.com" Set Items = Application.ActiveExplorer.CurrentFolder.Items For Each obj In Items If TypeOf obj Is Outlook.ContactItem Then Set Contact = obj If InStr(1, Contact.Email1Address, Find, vbTextCompare) Then Contact.Email1Address = Replace(Contact.Email1Address, Find, ReplaceBy, , , vbTextCompare) Contact.Save End If End If Next End Sub
