Help with ADO (not .NET) code for querying MAPI folder

Posted on 2004-04-13

I can't get the following subroutine to work. It's meant to query a MAPI public folder and return the first record. Can anyone tell me where I'm going wrong? It returns the error message: "Run-time error ‘-2147217900 (80040e19)’:" when it tries to open the recordset at the end of the routine.

Also, can you please explain why the second version of 'strUrlFolder (commented out) doesn't work?

Thanks

(PS - the code includes a custom function called Quote that simply adds quotes around a string value.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Sub ADO_QueryMAPIFolder()
    Dim cnn As ADODB.Connection
    Dim rst As ADODB.Recordset
    Dim strUrlFolder As String
    Dim strSQL As String
   
    strUrlFolder = "http://server1/exchange/grandmas.org.uk/public folders/all public folders/group contacts/"
    'strUrlFolder = "file://./backofficestorage/grandmas.org.uk/public folders/all public folders/group contacts/"
MsgBox strUrlFolder

    Set cnn = New Connection
    With cnn
        .Provider = "msdaipp.dso"
        .Open strUrlFolder
    End With
   
    If Err.Number = 0 Then
        MsgBox "Folder opened okay"
    Else
        MsgBox "Folder could not be opened"
        Err.Clear
    End If
   
    strSQL = "SELECT " & QUOTE("urn:schemas:contacts:givenName") & ", " & _
        QUOTE("urn:schemas:contacts:sn")
    strSQL = strSQL & " FROM SCOPE ('SHALLOW traversal of " & QUOTE(strUrlFolder) & "')"
MsgBox strSQL

    Set rst = New Recordset
    With rst
        .ActiveConnection = cnn
        .Open
    End With
MsgBox rst(1)
   
    rst.Close
    cnn.Close
   
    Set rst = Nothing
    Set cnn = Nothing
End Sub

This:

    With rst
        .ActiveConnection = cnn
        .Open
    End With

does NOT use the SQL string that you have defined:

try it this way:

    With rst
        .ActiveConnection = cnn
        .Open strSQL
    End With

Thanks. I did what you said but still get a run time error when the recordset attempts to open (rst.Open strSQL).

Maybe this is considered to be asking someone to do my homework for me. I'm new to this board, so I'm not sure what's protocol, but here's hoping anyway...
