Hi Everyone,

Can someone tell me, or point to somewhere that tells, how to open a .pst file as a personal folder via VBA?  I'm assuming once I have that code I can figure out how to close it, I just cant figure it out and after a quick google search I couldnt find anything either.

If it helps, this is what I'm trying to accomplish via VBA code:

-Open "V:\personal\expo.pst"
-Move selected messages to that .pst file
-Close expo.pst

I'm pretty sure I can get steps 2 and 3 once I know how to open and reference the pst file/personal folder, just need the nudge in the right direction to open it.

EDIT: I'm using outlook 2000, if that helps.
