I found this code to add a subfolder to the inbox default folder

 Sub AddInboxProjectsSubFolder()
    Dim olApp As Outlook.Application
    Dim objNS As Outlook.NameSpace
    Dim olFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
    Dim olNewFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
    Dim msg As Outlook.MailItem
   
    Set olApp = Outlook.Application
    Set objNS = olApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set olFolder = objNS.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)

    Set olNewFolder = olFolder.Folders.Add("16043 Fuel Island Repair")

End Sub


The attached .pdf shows my outlook folder structure and I would like to adapt this code to add subfolders to the Projects folder

Using Outlook exchange with office 365

msdn...  for GetDefaultFolder  
Remarks
To return a specific non-default folder, use the Folders collection.

    Set olApp = Outlook.Application
    Set objNS = olApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")
  '--- need to trap error if not exist
    Set olFolder = objNS.Folders("Projects")
   if(err.number>0) then
         Set olFolder = objNS.Folders.Add("Projects")
   end if
   newfoldername = "16043 Fuel Island Repair"
    Set olNewFolder = olFolder.Folders.Add(newfoldername )

Open in new window

actually Slipstick seems to recommend..
    Set olApp = Outlook.Application
    Set objNS = olApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set olFolderTop = objNS.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox).Parent  'get parent of inbox
  '--- need to trap error if not exist
    Set olFolder = olFolderTop.Folders("Projects")
   if(err.number>0) then
         Set olFolder = olFolderTop.Folders.Add("Projects")
   end if
   newfoldername = "16043 Fuel Island Repair"
    Set olNewFolder = olFolder.Folders.Add(newfoldername )
