ContactItem Object (Outlook)

Represents a contact in a Contacts folder.

A contact can represent any person with whom you have any personal or professional contact.

Use the CreateItem method to create a ContactItem object that represents a new contact.

Use Items (index), where index is the index number of a contact or a value used to match the default property of a contact, to return a single ContactItem object from a Contacts folder.

The following Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example returns a new contact.

Set myItem = Application.CreateItem(olContactItem)
