Hi All,

I am facing a problem with using the advanced search function provided in

the outlook object model.

What i am trying to achieve is simple. I just want to open a pst, and able

to run a search on all the items( calender, mail, appointment...everything),

and then just get the all items count...thats all..

The code i have written is as follows:

Dim app As New Application

Dim pstinfo As [NameSpace]

pstinfo = app.GetNamespace("MAPI")

Dim objfolder As MAPIFolder = Nothing

app.Session.Logon("outlook", "", False, True)

Dim allfolders As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.Folders =

pstinfo.Folders

Dim i As Integer = 0

Dim ii As Integer = 0

Dim foldernames(10) As String

For Each folder In allfolders

Dim objtempfolder As MAPIFolder = folder

foldernames(i) = objtempfolder.Name

i = i + 1

Next

pstinfo.Session.AddStore(PST NAME HERE)

Dim matchfound As Integer = 0

For Each folder In pstinfo.Folders

matchfound = 0

Dim objtempfolder1 As MAPIFolder = folder

For i = 0 To 10

If objtempfolder1.Name = foldernames(i) Then

matchfound = 1

Exit For

End If

Next

If matchfound = 0 Then

objfolder = objtempfolder1

End If

Next

Dim scope As String = Nothing

scope = "'" & objfolder.folderpath & "'"

Dim search As Search = app.Session.Application.AdvancedSearch(scope,

, True, "")

pstinfo.Session.RemoveStore(objfolder)

app = Nothing

pstinfo = Nothing

objfolder = Nothing

search = Nothing

System.GC.Collect()

Private Sub app_AdvancedSearchComplete(ByVal SearchObject As

Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.Search) Handles app.AdvancedSearchComplete

Dim results As Results

results = SearchObject.Results()

MsgBox("The Total Number of found in the PST Are: " & results.Count)

End Sub

This code works totally fine with almost all the PST's, until i encountered

a PST which had a mailbox named " Archived Folders". Thereby the

objfolder.folderpath variable comes out to be "\\ Archived Folders", and the

advanced search line throws an error saying Error: Argument Exception was

Unhandled:Could not complete the operation. One or more parameter values are

not valid.

For all others its working. Also one thing to mention is that "\\ Archived

Folders" has a starting space character, which i feel might be the problem.

Please if somebody could help me out, as i have tried all things, but

nothing works
 
See if replacing any spaces with "%20" works.
