how to show all items in outlook rather than show unread items, but for ALL folders?

I know on a folder by folder basis you can have outlook show a count of all items in a folder or just the count of unread items.  

But how to do it on all the folders?

I found this:

http://www.stringcat.com/company_blog/2013/09/28/outlook-macro-for-showing-total-numbers-of-items-for-all-folders/

I cut and pasted this to a file.vbs text document on desktop, ran it with outlook open on a win 7 machine (outlook 2010) and got an error line 3 char 13 end of line expected

anyone know what I am doing wrong or is there another way?

Yes, while similar in basic syntax, VBS stand alone scripts, and VBA for office applications do have some important differences that need to be taken in to consideration.

A stand alone VBS script could be made to work, but it would need to have Outlook running anyway, so probably just as easy to do it as a VBA module there.
