Returns or sets a String specifying the whole, unparsed full name for the contact. Read/write.

expression .FullName

expression A variable that represents a ContactItem object.

This property is parsed into the FirstName , MiddleName , LastName, and Suffix properties, which may be changed or typed independently if they are parsed incorrectly. Any changes or entries to the FirstName, LastName, MiddleName, or Suffix properties will be overwritten by any subsequent changes or entries to FullName.

This Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example uses the Restrict method to apply a filter to the contact items based on the item's LastModificationTime property, and then it displays the full name of the contacts returned by the filter.

Public Sub ContactDateCheck() 
 Dim myNamespace As Outlook.NameSpace 
 Dim myContacts As Outlook.Items 
 Dim myItems As Outlook.Items 
 Dim myItem As Object 
 Set myNamespace = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI") 
 Set myContacts = myNamespace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderContacts).Items 
 Set myItems = myContacts.Restrict("[LastModificationTime] > '01/1/2003'") 
 For Each myItem In myItems 
 If (myItem.Class = olContact) Then 
 MsgBox myItem.FullName & ": " & myItem.LastModificationTime 
 End If 
End Sub
