RE: Outlook addressbook

First try looking up the "OLE Automation" and "OLE Container Properties" in your manual.  My version (4)
has examples for Word and Excel.

You will need to access the Outlook COM object using OLE.

I have been using the file format below to read Outlook
files. You may find it useful, but no guarantees.
