 Object Types don't match message

Hi all,

I'm trying to find and efficient method of selecting a contact based on its
name and found some code that seems to do it.

In the following codesample, I get a types don;t match error when i remove
the debug.print statement. With the debug.print it seems to function
allright. It seems inefficient to me to leave it there, since I only put it
there for debugging reasons. Can anyone please solve this puzzle and give me
a sollution? I can't declare objItem as ContactItem, because then i get a
runtime error on the object colItems. If there is a better method to find a
contact based on an attribute-value I would be very interested also.
Thanks very much in advance.

The declaration of object:

    Dim olItem         As Outlook.ContactItem
    Dim colItems      As Items
    Dim objItem       As Object
    Dim olNameSpace   As Outlook.NameSpace
    Dim olFolder      As Outlook.MAPIFolder
    Dim olNewFolder   As Outlook.MAPIFolder

        Set olItem = Nothing
        strWhere = "[FileAs] = " & """" & strItemName & """"
        Set colItems = olNewFolder.Items.Restrict(strWhere)
        colItems.SetColumns ("FileAs")
        For Each objItem In colItems
            ' must test for item type to avoid distribution lists
            If TypeName(objItem) = "ContactItem" _
                If objItem.FileAs = strItemName _
                    Debug.Print "Item = " & objItem
                    Set olItem = objItem
                    Exit For
                End If
            End If

Kind regards,
