Can you post the code that gives you the error message?

Here is a code to show all the contacts (from the library manual):
Don't forget to add the two objects and create a form with a ListBox.
[LEFT][FONT=Courier New][COLOR=#008000]'Contact is a Contact object and ContactsCollection is a PimCollection  object.[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Courier New][COLOR=#0000ff]Sub[/COLOR][/FONT][FONT=Courier New] Globals[/FONT]

[FONT=Courier New][COLOR=#0000ff]End Sub[/COLOR][/FONT]

[FONT=Courier New][COLOR=#0000ff]Sub [/COLOR][/FONT][FONT=Courier New]App_Start[/FONT]
[FONT=Courier New]      Form1.Show[/FONT]
[FONT=Courier New]      Contact.New1[/FONT]
[FONT=Courier New]      ContactsCollection.New1("Contacts")[/FONT]
[FONT=Courier New]      ContactsCollection.SortItems("FirstName",false) [/FONT][FONT=Courier New][COLOR=#008000]'sorts the  contacts using the first name field.[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Courier New][COLOR=#0000ff]For [/COLOR][/FONT][FONT=Courier New]i = 0 [/FONT][FONT=Courier New][COLOR=#0000ff]to [/COLOR][/FONT][FONT=Courier New]ContactsCollection.Count - 1[/FONT]
[FONT=Courier New]            Contact.Value = ContactsCollection.GetItem(i)[/FONT]
[FONT=Courier New]            ListBox1.Add(Contact.FirstName & " " & Contact.LastName) [/FONT][FONT=Courier New][COLOR=#008000]'Add the contact's first and last name to ListBox1.[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Courier New][COLOR=#0000ff]Next[/COLOR][/FONT][/LEFT]

Thank you, Erel

I run your code and got an errror:
