I am looking for a VBA code that allows me to list every field name of my Outlook messages.
In other words, I want to know the name of the mapped fields I usually can get with the Outlook export action to .xls file; I would then use them in MS Access functions like below.
Thank you.
Dim olkItems As Object, olkItem As Object

....

For Each olkItem In olkItems

...=olkItem.Field1 (es. Name)

...=olkItem.Field2 (es. Subject)

...=....

Next olkItem

Open in new window

Once you have your outlook message variable you can use the code below to loop through all the properties, either as a count or directly as objects
Cheers, Andrew
Dim cnt As Long

For cnt = 0 To outMessage.ItemProperties.Count - 1

    Debug.Print outMessage.ItemProperties(cnt).Name

Next cnt
 

Dim oip As Outlook.ItemProperty

Dim oips As Outlook.ItemProperties

Set oips = outMessage.ItemProperties

For Each oip In oips

    Debug.Print oip.Name

Next oip

Open in new window

If I launch this code, I get some errors: outMessage is not delcared, so I get "an object is necessary"
If I declare it as object, I get "With variabloe not set"

outMessage is my variable that is either an Object or Outlook.MailItem
I think with late binding, dimming the variable as Object, then you will need to use the For cnt looping

I got it: if you use this code you get a string with every property and field name.
I gues it would work also if you pick a single item of an Outlook folder instead of creating a new item/message and looking what it's made of.
Dim olkName As String

Dim oip As Outlook.ItemProperty

Dim oips As Outlook.ItemProperties

Dim olApp As Object

Dim oItem As Object
 

Set olApp = CreateObject("Outlook.application")

Set oItem = olApp.CreateItem(0)

Set oips = oItem.ItemProperties
 

For Each oip In oips

    olkName = olkName & ", " & oip.Name

Next
 

Me.Pinco = olkName

Open in new window

Sounds right to me.
With message items you may want to investigate the FIND method to find the messages in your folderthat match certain criteria.
Cheers, Andrew
