Hi everyone,

I search a lot over the Web, but find nothing...

I would like to know if it is possible to call a macro stored in the Outlook session by using Send DDE Execute or Send Message function, and if it is I would like to have an example of the syntax we have to use.

Please don't tell me about plug-ins, that's not what I am looking for...

Any help will be welcome, thanks a lot!

Version: Developer v6

Platform: Windows XP

Christian,

I don't think it was a matter of being impossible, but more of a matter of timing on your part. You asked this question on the day FileMaker released version 7 this list, along with every FM discussion list got overwhelmed with chatter about the new product.

Also, there has been a ton of discussion on this and the other list I belong to concerting Outlook Express and FileMaker.

And lastly, there are plugin that have been developed for what you want to do.

here are a couple of files:
