Fixing broken Journal links to Contacts in Outlook 2007

After importing some Journal and Task items into Outlook 2007, I find that

the links to the contact are no longer active. When I double-click on the

underscored name in the "Contacts..." field, the following error message

appears:

"Cannot perform the requested operation. The command selected is not valid

for this recipient. An internal support function returned an error."

In the past, when I was running Outlook 2003, I was able to fix these broken

links by running this VBA macro, courtesy of Sue Mosher:

http://www.outlookcode.com/codedetail.aspx?id=1519

However, this script doesn't seem to work with Outlook 2007. Does anyone

know how it may be modified to work? Or if there are other solutions

(outside of manually re-entering the contact name and saving the Journal

item)?

Links are always among the items that don't survive an import. That's why

it's never correct to use export/import to move data from one Outlook instance

to another.

Actually, what I did was open an old Outlook PST file, and drag the items

into the new PST file. I realize that's not the same as importing them, and

I fully expected the links to work.

However, you didn't answer my question. Did you check out the VBA macro?

Am I in the wrong group? Should I post to a different group?

Sue reads this newsgroup, so perhaps she'll answer. I have no experience with VBA.

For your particular question, this newsgoup is probably fine.
