Dial the phone from Entourage via a script Apps
ABOUT: This AppleScript will dial a phone number from a contact in Microsoft Entourage.

REQUIREMENTS: The Shareware application Abdialer is required for this script to work. It costs $12 as of this writing.

WHERE TO GET: I have made this script available here

INSTALL:
  1. To install, copy the script (DialPhoneForSelectedContactcC) to the "Entourage Script Menu" folder inside the "Microsoft User Data" folder, which is inside your "Documents" folder. Perhaps typing it this way is easier to understand: /Users -> YOUR USERNAME -> Documents -> Microsoft User Data -> Entourage Script Menu Items
  2. Open Microsoft Entourage and select a contact.
  3. Click the script menu (on the top far-right) and select: DialPhoneForSelectedContact ^C, or use the keyboard shortcut, control-C

Dial the phone from Entourage via a script

Can this be modified to run in Address Book? That would be nice, as I now use a separate app to do that.

Go read about the referenced app called ABdialer.

The "AB" has nothing to do with exercising...try "Address Book"
