How do I properly use sub-folders of the Inbox with "WithEvents"?

Guest

I am currently trying to finish up an Outlook project whereby I increase a
counter for every message that is put into a sub-folder called "Completed"
which exists under the Inbox in Outlook 2002. I am missing some kind of link
between the WithEvents method and the actual subfolder. How do you properly
reference a user-made subfolder with the "WithEvents" method? My current
code is as follows:

Option Explicit
Option Compare Text

'Private WithEvents olInboxItems As Items
Private WithEvents objFolderItems As Items

'Public Function GetFolder(strFolderPath As String) As MAPIFolder

'' folder path needs to be something like
'' "Public Folders\All Public Folders\Company\Sales"
'Dim objApp As Outlook.Application
'Dim objNS As Outlook.NameSpace
'Dim colFolders As Outlook.Folders
'Dim objFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
'Dim arrFolders() As String
'Dim I As Long
'On Error Resume Next

'strFolderPath = Replace(strFolderPath, "/", "\")
'arrFolders() = Split(strFolderPath, "\")
'Set objApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
'Set objNS = objApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")
'Set objFolder = objNS.Folders.Item(arrFolders(0))
'If Not objFolder Is Nothing Then
'For I = 1 To UBound(arrFolders)
'Set colFolders = objFolder.Folders
'Set objFolder = Nothing
'Set objFolder = colFolders.Item(arrFolders(I))
'If objFolder Is Nothing Then
'Exit For
'End If
'Next
'End If

'Set GetFolder = objFolder
'Set colFolders = Nothing
'Set objNS = Nothing
'Set objApp = Nothing

'End Function

Private Sub Application_Quit()

' disassociate global objects
Set objFolderItems = Nothing

End Sub


Private Sub objFolderItems_ItemAdd(ByVal Item As Object)
Dim strSubject As String
Dim strSearch As String
Dim varFound As Variant
If Item.Class = olMail Then
strSubject = Item.Subject
strSearch = "undeliverable"
varFound = InStr(1, strSubject, strSearch)
If varFound <> 0 Or varFound = Null Then
'MsgBox "This Item Will Not Be Counted", vbOKOnly, "Trip Test
Code"
Exit Sub
End If
strSearch = "your mailbox is over"
varFound = InStr(1, strSubject, strSearch)
If varFound <> 0 Or varFound = Null Then
'MsgBox "This Item Will Not Be Counted", vbOKOnly, "Trip Test

Exit Sub
End If
strSearch = "out of office autoreply"
varFound = InStr(1, strSubject, strSearch)
If varFound <> 0 Or varFound = Null Then
'MsgBox "This Item Will Not Be Counted", vbOKOnly, "Trip Test

Exit Sub
End If

strSearch = "summary of junk email"
varFound = InStr(1, strSubject, strSearch)
If varFound <> 0 Or varFound = Null Then
'MsgBox "This Item Will Not Be Counted", vbOKOnly, "Trip Test

Exit Sub
End If
Call UpdateCounter
End If
End Sub

Thanks for any help you can lend!

The technique is the same regardless of the location of the folder:

1) You declare an Items variable WithEvents

2) You instantiate that variable in some code procedure. To get a non-default folder, you need to walk the folder hierarchy using the Folders collections or use a function like GetFolder() below that does that for you.

It looks to me like you have both, since you have this statement in Application_Startup:

Set objFolderItems = _
objNS.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox).Folders("Complete")

But you do have two declarations for objFolderItems. Remove the one in Application_Startup.

FYI, there is a newsgroup specifically for general Outlook programming issues "down the hall" at microsoft.public.outlook.program_vba or, via web interface, at http://www.microsoft.com/office/community/en-us/default.mspx?dg=microsoft.public.outlook.program_vba

Sue,

Thank you for replying. I actually discovered this mistake Thursday by
doing a close compare with code from your site. I can't believe the problem
was that easy! I also just received your book on Friday and I am eager to
get reading. Thanks again for your help.
