Trouble setting Outlook Folder from Access


A

Alan Z. Scharf

1. I'm having a problem getting items saved in the dedired Outlook folder
from Access records.

2. The output from Access to Outlook works perfectly - BUT all the records
go intothe main Outlook Contacts folder.

The folder I want them to go to is "TEST" in \Personal
Folders\Contacts\TEST.

3. I'm using following code to set folder:

Dim App As New Outlook.Application
Dim Ns As Outlook.NameSpace
Dim Fldr As Outlook.MAPIFolder

Set Ns = App.GetNamespace("MAPI")
Set Fldr = Ns.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderContacts)
Set Fldr = Fldr.Folders("TEST")

Any insight would be appreciated.

Complete code is listed below.

Thanks very much.

To create a new item in a specific folder, use the Add method on the target
folder's Items collection. You can use the code at
http://www.outlookcode.com/d/code/getfolder.htm to walk the folder hierarchy
and return the MAPIFolder corresponding to a given path string.

Sue,

Thanks for your reply.

I'm still having a probllem getting the new Items into in the desired
folder.

1. I had already tried the GetFolder code.
I have also tried GetFolderFromID with the long itemc ode.

2. My 'Fldr' object variables is calculated correctly with both methods ,
but contact item still goes into default "Personal Items"\Contacts"

3. QUESTIONS: :Am I doning something wrong in specifying wher the Item is
created?
Is there some Add statement required for the specified folder?

4. The placement of GetFolder() is as below.
I also tried placing it within the loop.

Thanks again very much.
I have ordered your book, but am trying to find the solution before the book
arrives.

Alan


Roght now, I have:

GETFOLDER CODE
-----------------------


Set Fldr = GetFolder("Personal Folders/Contacts/TEST")
Do Until rst.EOF
' Create new contact item
Set Item = App.CreateItem(olContactItem)

' Specify which form to use
Item.MessageClass = "IPM.Contact"

' Create all built-in Outlook fields fom Access record
With Item
.CompanyName = Nz(rst("Company"))
.FirstName = Nz(rst("FirstName"))
.LastName = Nz(rst("LastName"))

Repeating:

In other words, MAPIFolder.Items.Add, not CreateItem.
