The FileAs property gets or sets the filing string for a contact.

To get the value of the FileAs property, call the property method described here.

To set the value of the FileAs property, see the IContact::put_FileAs property method.


HRESULT get_FileAs(
   BSTR * ppwsz
);

ppwsz

[out] Reference to the filing string. For information on the BSTR type, see BSTR.

This method returns the standard values E_INVALIDARG, E_OUTOFMEMORY, E_UNEXPECTED, and E_FAIL, as well as the following:

S_OK

The method completed successfully.

Maximum length is 1022 characters.

Outlook Mobile automatically defaults the filing string to "LastName, FirstName".

If you update a Contact's FirstName or LastName (or CompanyName if there are no values for FirstName and LastName), Outlook Mobile automatically updates the FileAs value to match.

If you set FileAs, the new value is not overwritten until you call Save.
