Outlook macro to display purlic folder from a toolbar button

I would like to create a macro to open a public calendar from a toolbar button. The calendar is located at:

\\Public Folders\All Public Folders\Penn_Machine_Company\_Public Calendar

I thought about making a shortcut but the shortcuts in Outlook 2007 can't be moved to the toolbar.

Thanks

Hi, alank2.

This should do it.
Sub OpenPublicFolder()
    Dim olkFolder As Outlook.Folder
    Set olkFolder = Outlook.Session.GetDefaultFolder(olPublicFoldersAllPublicFolders).Folders("Penn_Machine_Company").Folders("_Public Calendar")
    olkFolder.Display
    Set olkFolder = Nothing
End Sub

Open in new window

BlueDevilFan,

I figured you would get this. I forgot to add the full path to the calendar, so I changed the line to:

Set olkFolder = Outlook.Session.GetDefaultFolder(olPublicFoldersAllPublicFolders).Folders("Penn_Machine_Company").Folders("_Public Calendar").Folders("Calendar")

It works fine, however a second Outlook appears with the calendar. Is it possible to click run the macro so that the Outlook just switches to the calendar?

Thanks

You're welcome.  This version opens the folder in the existing Outlook window.
Sub OpenPublicFolder()
    Dim olkFolder As Outlook.Folder
    Set olkFolder = Outlook.Session.GetDefaultFolder(olPublicFoldersAllPublicFolders).Folders("Penn_Machine_Company").Folders("_Public Calendar").Folders("Calendar")
    Set Outlook.Application.ActiveExplorer.CurrentFolder = olkFolder
    Set olkFolder = Nothing
End Sub

Open in new window
