What type of object is Outlook's Advanced Find?  Need to use a Macro with the results of a search.

If you open the Advanced Find feature in Outlook and right-click on the toolbar, you'll notice that you can Customize it with other buttons.  I have a macro that moves a selected item to a folder that I want to create a button for - it uses the Selection property of the Explorer object.  The search results from an Advanced Find appear to be an Explorer object, but if I use the button it tries to move whatever item is currently selected in the main Outlook Explorer behind the Advanced Find window.  What type of Outlook object is the Advanced Find?  It's not an Inspector, and that doesn't apply because I need a Selection property.  How to I code against the items in the results of a search?

Hey swright1vc;

as far as I know there's is now way to access the advanced find results. May be an own form will help you out. show the results form you custom findform in a lisbox control and enable the multiselect property. I know that's not what you want may it's a workaround. ;-)

OK, so if I'm understanding you correctly you're saying I can create a custom input form and perhaps use the Outlook Search object to run a search using the input in the form?  Can I do a search on custom form fields that we use on a certain form we use to override IPM.Note?
