Hi




I would like to open the "Advanced Find"-Dialog from within Outlook VBA.


If possible I would also like to already set some search parameters (e.g. the folder to search in, to not only search in subject fields but in regularly used textfields), so the user only has to type some other parameters and can then start searching.


I know the function Application.AdvancedSearch(...), but I would really like to open the Outlook built-in Dialog to the user, so he can refine search parameters and start searching.




Could anyone help me out with some code samples?




Thanks alot for your help in advance!

What you want can't be done. The best you could do probably would be to use

CommandBars techniques to execute the menu/toolbar item that displays the

Advanced Find dialog. The Outlook object model does not, however, provide a

way to preset any of the options in that dialog (although it might be done

with a SendKeys kludge -- not a solution I'd ever give to users).
