I have to perform search on the outlook.pst files programmatically.
I have to search the subject and body of the mails as it is provided in microsoft outlook itself.
for eg if i have a search criteria like
"welcome town"
if the subject of my first mail in outlook is
"welcome" and the second one has "welcome hello town"
then only the second one should come
i have used restrict method of outlook 9.0 object library but i get the result only if i give the whole subject as search string ie
"welcome hello town"
Waiting for the reply.Thanks!!!!!

Hi shivanit,

Here is an example:

Private Sub Command3_Click()
    Dim iOutlook As Outlook.Application
    Dim myitem As Outlook.MailItem
    Dim myFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
    Dim myAttach As Outlook.Attachment
    Dim SearchString As String
   
    SearchString = "Welcome"
    Set iOutlook = New Outlook.Application
   
    Set myFolder = iOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI").GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)

    List1.Clear
    For i = 1 To myFolder.Items.Count
        Set myitem = myFolder.Items(i)
        If InStr(1, myitem.Subject, SearchString) > 0 Then 'If InStr(1, myitem.Subject, SearchString) = 1 Then 'Perform Like% method
            List1.AddItem myitem.SenderName & " " & myitem.Subject
            DoEvents
        End If
    Next i
    Set myitem = Nothing
    Set myFolder = Nothing
    Set iOutlook = Nothing
End Sub

Hope this help
