in reply to Extract Outlook Telephone Numbers

neat! This worked for me except it did not print the Caption on line 26. I'm using Outlook 97 (poor me) so maybe that's the problem. $activeexplorer->CurrentFolder->Name seems to work though.

What is the meaning of 069 (line 46)?

I added some code after line 24 to automatically change to the Contacts folder:

use Win32::OLE::Const 'Microsoft Outlook';
my $outlook; $outlook = Win32::OLE->new('Outlook.Application'); my $namespace = $outlook->GetNamespace("MAPI"); my $Folder = $namespace->GetDefaultFolder(olFolderContacts); print $Folder->Name,"\n"; my $items = $Folder->Items; print $items->Count,"\n";
does it. (Between "my $outlook;" and "print $items->Count,"\n";)

This doesn't change folders on the running copy of Outlook. The extra "use" line is required for using olFolderContacts.
