I have emails that are listed in the TASK section in folders that are actually subfolders other main folders. How do I find what folder (the main folder) the message resides in? Right now, it tells me the folder the message resides in, but I have to search through a bunch of main folders to find that email in it's sub folder.

That first Task is in the folder "Mount Wachusett Community College", but actually that folder is in a folder called "Mid-Atlantic" and that folder is in a folder called "NACA".

My NACA folder has 7 folders in it:
1. Mid Atlantic
2. South
3. Central
4. Northern Plains
5. Mid America
6. West
7. Northeast

In those 7 folders I have about 50+ folders that correspond to college, such as "Mount Wachusett Community College".

The Task shows the folder "Mount Wachusett Community College", but I'm curious if there is a way to show it as "Mid America / Mount Wachusett Community College", so that I can find the correspondence quicker.

Got it.  You want to see the whole folder path.  I see two possible ways to do this.

1.  Create a user-define property and populate it with the path.  The code will have to be connected to every task folder or you'll have to manually run it periodically.

2.  Create a macro that displays the path via a button click.  When the button is clicked display a dialog-box with the path.

#2 would most likely be the way to go.

Ok, here's the code for that.
Sub DisplayFolderPath()
    Dim olkItem As Object, olkParent As Folder
    Set olkItem = Application.ActiveExplorer.Selection(1)
    Set olkParent = olkItem.Parent
    MsgBox "This item is in the folder" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & olkParent.FolderPath, vbInformation + vbOKOnly, "Folder Path"
    Set olkParent = Nothing
    Set olkItem = Nothing
End Sub
