Hi,

 

Not sure, but considering that Outlook is a part of Office, this might appear to be of some help: https://smartbear-cc.force.com/portal/KbArticleViewer?name=Get-COM-reference-for-a-running-Excel-ins...

Re: Vb Script Getobject method is not binding to an already open Outlook application

Hi,

 

I have red the provided article and came to know that getobject function does not bind to the existing excel application.

 

I don't know the exact internals of how COM works but Getobject can get the existing excel reference.

 

Following steps works in VB script.

Set Obj=CreateObject("Excel.Application") will give  new excel instance.

Set Obj=GetObject(,"Excel.Application") will give existing excel instance.I.e Open excel application and run this statement.This statement binds to the opened excel application.
