Updating Exchange Distrobution List from Excel Contact List

Q: Updating Exchange Distrobution List from Excel Contact List

Hi there (time to stop lurking!)

I have already created a Macro to create a local distrobution list(s) from an Excel sheet with email addresses.

Assuming the user already has write access to modify members to the Exchange list, is there a way through VBA to;

A) Check if the email address already exists;
B) If not, then add the member to the list

Thank you

Raf

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

How can you make internal office email available if you do not use Exchange? If I wanted to set up a global contact list and have users be able to email users internally but do not have an Exchange server set up, how can I do that? Are there Exchange services I can install?

hi, we want to hide the members (contact) search feature in our exchange 2003 list.
the senario is, we want our mail users to not be able to see the contacts. For example, if they type " Mike" the list will show all Mikes in our corporation. the plan is to send a specific email to a specific person without playing around to to do a search on contact with the name Mike. in the email field.
any suggestions???
 

A:Hide Contact list from all users exchange 2003

That's not really possible. It's controlled by the global address list (GAL). You can remove individual entries from the global address list, but from experience it causes more issues in the long run than its worth especially when it comes to making user changes in AD. If you remove an entry from the GAL then it will remove it from all contacts, not just your mail users.

What is going on is when I send a new email and I want to use type a distrobution list it brings ups two lists. When I start to type the list in it bring up two distrobution list names. One called "guidence department" which has been deleted and and other called "guidence dept" that is the current list.

How can I delete or remove the all references of the deleted list?

Also, if I go and change the name "guidence dept" to "guidence department" I get an error message "an unexpected error occured" when I click "SEND".

I had typed up a contact list in Excel for a club). Apparently when I updated it last in July, in pdf, a date appeared at the bottom of the screen like a footer. Now I want to update the list in November, how can I get rid of that date which does not show on the Excel document. All I did was rename the document to November 2015, but the old date still remains.

Hai,

1. Manage to calculate total value inside my list box by using excel vba script,
TextBox16.Value = ListBox1.ListCount and it shown actual text enter per each row.
Can anybody assist what is suitable list count script to used if we need to count total number
of specific text enter at column or row [Example: Apple]

2. Based on script below I can make my excel worksheet cells flash with vba;

Sub makeCellsFlash()
Dim mydate1 As Date
Dim mydate2 As Long
Dim datetoday1 As Date
Dim datetoday2 As Long
Dim x As Long
lastrow = Sheets(?sheet1?).Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
For x = 2 To lastrow
mydate1 = Cells(x, 2).Value
mydate2 = mydate1
datetoday1 = Date
datetoday2 = datetoday1
If mydate2 ? datetoday2 = 3 Then
Cells(x, 3) = ?Yes?
Cells(x, 3).Interior.ColorIndex = 3
Cells(x, 3).Font.ColorIndex = 2
Cells(x, 3).Font.Bold = True
End If
Next
startTimer
End Sub
Module 2 contains the VBA code for the timer:
Sub startTimer()
Application.OnTime Now + TimeValue(?00:00:01?), ?color_cells?
End Sub
Sub color_cells()
With ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(?sheet1?).Range(?C2:C6?).Font
If .ColorIndex = 3 Then
.ColorIndex = 2
Else
.ColorIndex = 3
End If
End With
startTimer
End Sub
Sub endTimer()
Application.OnTime Now + TimeValue(?00:00:01?), ?color_cells?, schedule:=False
End Sub

Can anybody assist same script above to be used inside list box

this may not be the best solution but seeing as you have had no other suggestions you can try this. This works with forms and with control on a sheet.

obviously you will need to code in a way to terminate the loop, in this case iv used an infinite loop which clearly would not be worth using! you will need to set a Boolean to pause or stop the loop when a button is pressed or an event is triggered.
Code:
Private Declare Sub Sleep Lib "kernel32" (ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long)

Sub SelectUnselect()

Do While True
For i = 0 To UserForm1.ListBox1.ListCount - 1
If UserForm1.ListBox1.Selected(i) = True Then
UserForm1.ListBox1.Selected(i) = False
DoEvents
Sleep 1000
Else
If UserForm1.ListBox1.Selected(3) = False Then
UserForm1.ListBox1.Selected(3) = True
DoEvents
Sleep 1000
End If
End If
Next i
Loop

End Sub

I am currently receiving 27 reports that I have to compile into a master list on a daily basis. I tried creating an .bat file using notes to copy these lists into a master list but it is not working (please see code below).

When I run this file it only copies one of the 27 files. Is there a way that I can run a macro to do this for me. I am really not familiar with macro's and am hoping that someone can point me in the right direction.

I have two lists.
List one is raw data. List two is a collection of flag/alert words.

I need to find any term in list one that contains any flag word from list two.

Examples
LIST ONE
appleworm
wormapple
woapplerm

LIST TWO
Apple

In this example every term on list one would return a result of 'true'. LIST TWO is always much shorter than list one.

I was trying to set it up so that in the column directly to the right of LIST ONE produces a 'true' if that list one term contains in any fashion any term from LIST TWO.

As you will see in the example I was also trying to have a similar column to the right of LIST TWO so that I could easily see how many of the key terms had been found in the much larger list.

The sample also has color fill based on the True/False to make it easier to visualize.

Can anyone help make this work correctly?
Match does not work because I am not looking for identical strings.
I have not been able to get Find or Search to work either.

As of right now it only seems to look at the other list's entry on the exact same ROW.

A:Issues importing large contact list in Excel 2007 to Outlook 2007

Hi hbsurfer

Try going about it backwards.
Create one Contact in Outlook 2007, then Export that one Contact to a .csv file.
Then you will be able to see the format Outlook 2007 is using and reconfigure your headers in the Excel spreadsheet.
When all headers match, you should be able to Import it. Or copy the excel information to the one contact .csv file and Import that.

Let us know if that works for you or not.

I cannot think of anything I did different than the hundreds of other times I added names. Where did my contact list go and how can I get it back?

Hi
Aplogies if this has been posted before but I can't find it.
I did a new install to windows 7 without too many problems but I am having problems with my email contacts list.

This now doesn't happen and I have to go into my address book which is as pain because the addresses aren't in alphabetical order. I have also lost my skins. About 3 weeks ago both of these things came back but only for a couple of hours and had disappeared when I next used my computer (very strange but true)
Can anyone offer any help with this annoying problem?

Only guessing here, for although I certainly use Windows 7 & Outlook 2007, I haven't used Outlook Express since 1997 so I've never had to transfer any data from it. Transferring from/to Outlook is just so much easier than transferring any data from Outlook Express (which is why I stopped using it).

1. Open Outlook
2. Click 'Tools' >> 'Address Book'

I got a new laptop with Vista about 3 weeks ago. I started out using the Windows Mail that came with Vista - imported my address book from OE with no problem.

Then I decided to "upgrade" to Windows Live Mail - and I lost most of my contacts.

I went back to the old laptop and tried to directly upload my OE address book to WLM but was told there was a limit of 1500 contacts. I have over 5000.

So - I exported in csv file and am trying to import but it has been running for over 12 hours and isn't even half done.

I am afraid that even after it does complete - as soon as is syncs with Live - I will lose those contacts again - does anyone know if I will?

Also - I know there are a lot of duplicate entries in my address book and addresses I am sure I don't need - is there any utility out there that will help clean it out? I found some for Outlook but didn't know if they would apply to OE.

Hi everybody

Excuse my less then perfect English..

I have a (weird) problem with msn messenger. Most people know that it's possible to see wehter you have been removed from a contact's list in messenger. By going to options and then privacy, it's possible to see your blocked and accepted contacts. When right clicking a certain contact it either does or does not give the possibility to delete the contact. If the contact can be deleted, that contact has removed you from their list. If a contact can't be deleted, that contact still has you in their list.

Now, my problem concerns a contact, which I have regular chat sessions with. I KNOW that I am still in their list, yet messenger gives me the possibility of removing them (under options->privacy). Does anyone know what the reason might be and how I can fix this problem? There should be a way to update the acceptance list and make msn recognize that this contact has me in their list..

I'd appreciate help, this has been bugging me for a whule now.. Thanks in advance

A:Contact List corrupted

If you are both signing in (either manually or automatically) with the WLM email client (at different times, of course) then you are each seeing your respective "signed-in" contact list. You can also view those lists at the website "contacts.live.com" (even with WLM closed) using your browser; you will only see the list that corresponds to the login used on the browser at that time.

If OTOH you use WLM w/o signing in then WLM will display it's one and only "not-signed-in" contact list.

So if two of you are using WLM there are a total of 3 contact lists visible in the client but only one can be seen at a time:
1) Your "signed-in" contact list (duplicated on your contacts.live.com)
2) Wife's "signed-in" contact list (duplicated on her contacts.live.com)
3) The "not-signed-in" contact list (not duplicated anywhere)

Suggestions only :
Before anything, run a full virus scan on your computer. Then........

1. Do a system restore. Pick the date when all your contacts were present as your restore point.
System Restore - disk space

2. Go to your webmail site > logon to your account > find if your contact list is intact there.

Hi,

The contacts I have on my MSN contact list have a habit of changing their nicks (display names) frequently. As such, to find out who the person behind a nick is, I have to hover my mouse over the display name to view his email address, then rack my brains to think who that email address belongs to.

Is there any way to display some fixed names that I set for each contact in addition to their ever-changing display names?

Thanks!
Regards,

E-Eleven

Hello. This is my first time posting to this forum and I am at my wits end. My wife's e-mail contact list appears to have been hijacked and now all her contacts are receiving website urls from her e-mail address. I downloaded HiJackThis and did a scan. Their website recommended that I copy the scan log into an post to your forum. So, here it is. I really hope someone can help.

On my IPad some of the names are in bold print and I can send emails to them.
The others are dim and I cannot send emails to them.
How can I fix it to where all contacts are eligible to email to?
Thanks
