In Outlook 2003 VBA an already existing pst file can be opened from path in the GUI by the AddStore method and it can be removed from the GUI by the RemoveStore method. Strange but true: the file isnt closed by the remove method. To close it you have to close the Outllook application which is everything but an elegant way to close a file.

I want to close the pst by code so that other users may open and use it as an archive pst. Any idea?

Hi, Peter_M_Kroell.

It's not possible and it's not just when a PST file is closed via code.  Closing a PST through the GUI doesn't actually close it either.  It's a flaw in Outlook.
