    Hallo,
    does somebody know how the Brithday field can be exported into e.g. Excel.

    I just need the information how the field can be accessed.

    Thanks a lot

    Yours Manfred

    Field can be accessed from the AddresBookEntry.Fields collection. See the GroupWise Object API for more information. You can not access the Birthday field because the field type is set to Reserved. Not sure why, may be this behaviour changed in latest release. The code below shows all fields for an address book entry. Hope this helps.

    dim oBook
    dim oEntry
    dim oField

    set oBook = GroupWise.Account.AddressBooks.Item(1)

    set oEntry = oBook.AddressBookEntries.Item(1)

    for each oField in oEntry.Fields
    msgbox “Field Name: ” & oField.Name & vbcrlf &_
    “Field Value: ” & oField.Value & vbcrlf & _
    “Field Type: ” & oField.FieldDefinition.FieldType
    next

    set oField = nothing
    set oEntry = nothing
    set oBook = nothing

    Thanks

    I seem to recall you needed to be using GW6.5.1 or higher, and that you had to use the account MultiLoginAddressBookSupport property in order to access the Birthday field (something to do with MAPI?).

    As this is really a GroupWise Object API question, you could probably obtain the definitive answer in Novell’s Object API Usenet forum – head to developernet.novell.com as a starting point.
