I am using Visual Basic to interface with Outlook, and I'm trying to find the PST file path if I know the StoreID value - i can't seem to find it at all. If i load a pst file using the LoadStore function, how do I know which store i've loaded in the hierarchy if I cannot connect the StoreID to the PST name?

that seems not easy from this link on the topic

---------
create a string from the storeid (every two bytes should be converted from hex to a single byte which must be cast to a character), that should give you the path name
---------

hope this helps a bit
