Can someone convert this to late binding?

Dim myolApp As Outlook.Application
Dim myNamespace As Outlook.NameSpace
Dim myFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
Set myolApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set myNamespace = myolApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")
Set myFolder = myNamespace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderDrafts)

I think using CreateObject("Outlook.Application") is late binding.
And early binding would be:
Set myolApp = New Outlook.Application
of course you need the reference to the Outlook Library where as in late binding you do not

Acually I have late binding on some of my email procedures but the procedure that I took this code from needs to get into the Drafts forlder.
So the real problem here is the myNamespace and myFolder statements.

Dim myolApp As object
Dim myNamespace As object
Dim myFolder As object
Set myolApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set myNamespace = myolApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")
Set myFolder = myNamespace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderDrafts)

btw, using late binding, you cant use Outlook constants like olFolderDrafts
i think olFolderDrafts = 16

so try flavo's code with
Set myFolder = myNamespace.GetDefaultFolder(16)

16 is the answer. Where do you get a listing of the other numbers?

And thanks for the answer, I tested it.

in the intermeditae window just type ?Const

it will return the value (as long as its refrenced)

to open the intermediate window, while in VBA, press ctrl+g
