Removing a store in Outlook using VBA

I have a list of PST files in Excel (with their full path)

a VBA running within excel would  open each PST file (load it) into Outlook and then count the items in each folder and close it.
It would then write in a cell the information from the PST and proceed with the others, until exhaust the list.

The ideal situation, would be to close (remove) any PST file loaded just after have been written the data into the excel spreadsheet. Any hint on how to remove a store (a PST file loaded in Outlook -other than the main PST file) ?

The code for load is pretty straightforward (just Outlk.addstore filepath&name)
but Outlk.removeStore does not work as easy...

Hi,

have you tried
Sub RemovePST() 

 Dim objName As Outlook.NameSpace 

 Dim objFolder As Outlook.Folder 



 Set objName = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI") 

 Set objFolder = objName.Folders.Item("Personal Folders") 

 'Prompt the user for confirmation 

 Dim strPrompt As String 

 strPrompt = "Are you sure you want to remove the Personal Folders file?" 

 If MsgBox(strPrompt, vbYesNo + vbQuestion) = vbYes Then 

 objName.RemoveStore objFolder 

 End If 

End Sub

Open in new window

Set remPST = olkNS.folders.GetLast
