Recipe 16.1 Use the Built-in Smart Tags

16.1.1 Problem

How can I enable a user to scroll through a list of names on a form
and launch Outlook's Contacts dialog box, so that
the user can add the selected person as a contact?

16.1.2 Solution

You can use the built-in Person smart tag to add or change
contact information stored in Microsoft Outlook. The
Person smart tag allows you to take
the following actions:

  • Send an email message to a contact.

  • Schedule a meeting with a contact.

  • Open and edit a contact's information.

  • Add the name in the control to your list of contacts.

It's very easy to add the Person smart tag to a
label, text box, or combo box control on a
form by following these steps:

  1. Open frmEmployees in 16-01.mdb in design view, select the FullName
    text box, and press F4 to bring up the Properties window. Click the
    Data tab and click to the right of the Smart Tags option to load the
    Smart Tags dialog box.

  2. Select the Person Name checkbox, as shown in Figure 16-1, and click OK. This will add the following
    text to the SmartTags option in the dialog box:


Figure 16-1. Adding the Person smart tag to a control on a form

  1. Display the form in form view and click the control where you added
    the smart tag. The sample application contains a form, frmEmployees,
    with a smart tag on the Name text box. When you click in the text
    box, the smart tag icon is displayed, as shown in Figure 16-2.

  1. Selecting the Add to Contacts option will launch
    Outlook's new contact window, as shown in Figure 16-3. You can then enter the new contact
    information for that person.

16.1.3 Discussion

When you use a smart tag to enter a new contact in Outlook, the
entire contents of the control are automatically copied to Outlook.
If the form control that has the associated smart tag contains only
the last name, then that is what will be copied to Outlook. If you
want both the last name and first name copied, then create an
expression for the Control Source property:

=[FirstName] & " " & [LastName]

If you are attaching a smart tag to a combo box control, then the
data displayed in the combo box will be used, not the data in the
bound column.

You can add smart tags to label, text box, and combo box form
controls. Smart tags are not supported for
reports. In addition, you can add smart
tags to the following controls on a Data Access Page:

  • Label

  • Bound Span

  • Text Box

  • Scrolling Text

  • Drop-down List

  • Hyperlink
