Hi folks,

I hope you can help.

I know how to assign a macro to a custom ribbon but what I don't know is the correct code/syntax to achieve the desired outcome when a custom button is executed!

I have a couple of Send and Receive Groups defined in Outlook 2010.  One of them will only work when I'm connected via VPN to the office and the other will only work when I'm NOT connected via VPN.  What I'd ideally like is to have a couple of custom buttons that executes either Send/Receive Group 1 or Group 2.  Can you offer me some sample vba macro code that would achieve this?

Many thanks in advance for any help you feel able to give.

Hi, BabyFaceLima.

Here's the code for doing what you described.  Duplicate the code once, changing the name of the send receive group, for each button.
Sub SendReceiveGroup1()
    Dim olkSync As Outlook.SyncObject
    'Change the send/receive group name on the next line'
    Set olkSync = Session.SyncObjects("SomeSendReceiveGroupName")
    olkSync.Start
End Sub
