    I’m looking for a way to automate the process of opening the Address Book application, picking the non- system address books, and choosing File –> Export –> Entire book (and then deal with the File Save As dialog box).

    I do want to save the address books in the .NAB file format. I’m just making a backup, per person, prior to doing some maintenance. Also, it would be nice to have, that my users could have a one-click address book backup option.

    Essentially, what I would like is:


    Sub Main(Client, GWEvent)

    Dim objAddressBooks
    Dim objAddressBook

    Set objAddressBooks = GroupWise.AddressBooks
    For Each objAddressBook In objAddressBooks
    objAddressBook.FileExportAs(“some_path_and_file_name_i_generate_from_the_address_book_name”)
    Next
    Set objAddressBooks = Nothing

    End Sub

    Can something like this be done with Formativ?

    Thanks!

    Hi and thanks for your message. Yes, it should be possible, although we don’t have a pre-written Formativ solution which matches your exact requirements. There is an example written many years ago and the general approach should still be valid. The source code will be sent to you via direct email and hopefully it will be of some assistance.

    Kind Regards,
