This error means the Object API hasn’t returned an object to you. In this case, the Object API doesn’t return an AddressBookRights collection unless the address book has actually been shared with someone. You need to check if the AddressBookRights object is ‘nothing’ before accessing it.

Here’s some example code:

dim oBook
dim oRights
set oBook = groupwise.account.addressbooks.item("Test")
msgbox oBook.Name
set oRights = nothing
set oRights = oBook.AddressBookRights
if oRights is nothing then
  msgbox "No object"
  msgbox "object"
end if

set oRights = nothing
set oBook = nothing

I suspect the same issue may be behind the missing address book problem you encountered. If the book has been deleted (or is otherwise unavaible), the Object API will return an empty object. You need to check this before attempting to access the returned objects properties.

I hope this helps.
