expression .UserProperties

expression A variable that represents a ContactItem object.

This Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example finds a custom property named LastDateContacted for the contact 'Jeff Smith' and displays it to the user. To run this example, you need to replace 'Jeff Smith' with a valid contact name and create a user-defined property called LastDateContacted for the contact.

Sub FindContact() 
 'Finds and displays last contacted info for a contact 
 Dim objContact As Outlook.ContactItem 
 Dim objContacts As Outlook.Folder 
 Dim objNameSpace As Outlook.NameSpace 
 Dim objProperty As Outlook.UserProperty 
 Set objNameSpace = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI") 
 Set objContacts = objNameSpace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderContacts) 
 Set objContact = objContacts.Items.Find( _ 
 "[FileAs] = ""Smith, Jeff"" and [FirstName] = ""Jeff""") 
 If Not TypeName(objContact) = "Nothing" Then 
 Set objProperty = _ 
 If TypeName(objProperty) <> "Nothing" Then 
 MsgBox "Last Date Contacted: " & objProperty.Value 
 End If 
 MsgBox "The contact was not found." 
 End If 
End Sub
