Hi,

I had posted this earlier in the Using Outlook forum. I think I asked the question in the wrong forum.

Can anyone help me with a simple code to insert first name of recipient(s) from a macro button?

This button would be executed from a new mail / reply or reply to all window.
The recipient name would be entered before this macro is executed.

Some sample code on how to manage multiple recipients would be an added help! :)

I know how to create a button, I just need help with the code.

Thanks a ton!

Do you just need an inputbox ? That would ask for you to type something.

strName = InputBox("Enter the name")

Then you'll use strName in the code where the name goes.

Dear Diane,

If you help with some beginner code to start this I would be obliged.

If it would help with some commented options to indicate which line would get me first name , which would get me all names, etc THAT would be awesome!

Thanks a lot!

I don't have any code handy that does this (AFAIK) - you won't be able to get just first names easily if you are getting them from the recipients on the message - you'll get whatever display name is used.
