Outlook Adds VBA

Microsoft Corp. announced today that Microsoft Outlook 2000 will be the first version of the messaging and collaboration client to support Visual Basic for Applications. VBA was already available in Office 97 versions of Word, Excel, Access and PowerPoint.

Integrated VBA support in Outlook 2000 will make it easier for developers to create messaging and collaboration applications with Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft said. Potential applications include automating the collection of data from e-mail messages, creating custom rules and wizards for managing e-mail and schedules, integrating external data into e-mail messages or providing a daily summary listing the number of new items and the number of unread items in users' mailboxes.

In conjunction with the addition of VBA, Microsoft said the Outlook 2000 object model would also be expanded to enable greater access to the application's user interface and application events. --Michele Rosen, Staff Reporter, New York Correspondent
