Last modified: July 23, 2011

Applies to: Outlook

Returns the entry identifier of the container that is designated as the personal address book (PAB).

HRESULT GetPAB(
  ULONG FAR * lpcbEntryID,
  LPENTRYID FAR * lppEntryID
);

lpcbEntryID

[out] A pointer to the byte count in the entry identifier pointed to by the lppEntryID parameter.

lppEntryID

[out] A pointer to a pointer to the entry identifier of the PAB. The lppEntryID parameter contains zero if no container has been designated as the PAB.

S_OK

The entry identifier of the PAB was successfully returned.

Clients call the GetPAB method to retrieve the entry identifier of the container designated as the PAB. If a PAB has not been established in the profile, MAPI selects as the PAB the first container in the address book hierarchy that allows modifications.
