Hi,

I have to create a personal folder using VBA.  Any idea how can I acheive the same programmatically ?

I don't need the manual methods as I am also aware of the same.

Please let me know some script/code for creating a personal folder. Any appropriate link is also sufficient.

Vikas.

Greetings, TiwariVikas.

Use the AddStore method of the NameSpace object.  Here's a function I wrote for another question that creates an archive (PST) file for a given year.  I've added comments to help make sense of it.

Sub CreateYearlyPST(strYear As String, strArchiveFileName As String)
    Dim olkNS As Outlook.NameSpace, _
        olkFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
    'Create a NameSpace object
    Set olkNS = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    'Create the new PST file using the name passed
    olkNS.AddStore strArchiveFileName
    'Get the root folder in the new PST file.  OpenMAPIFolder is a custom function.  I can post the code if you need.
    Set olkFolder = OpenMAPIFolder("\Personal Folders")
    'Create a fodler called Inbox
    olkFolder.Folders.Add "Inbox", olFolderInbox
    olkFolder.Name = strYear
    olkNS.RemoveStore olkFolder
    Set olkFolder = Nothing
    Set olkNS = Nothing
End Sub

Cheers!
