Error from Folder.MoveTo function

Not open for further replies.


I am trying to move a folder to another location from within a custom

form. Executing the MoveTo function I get the error :

"Cannot copy this folder because it may contain private items".

Is this because the folder I am trying to move contains the custom

form that I have open, and am executing the code from ? Another

reason ?

I can drag and drop this folder to it's new location without problems,

even with the custom form open. It only happens when using MoveTo in

the VBS code.


I have tested the scenaro where I attempt to move a different folder

from that containing the current custom form. I get the same error.

I should also add that all the folders here are in a shared mailbox

and the custom form is in my "Personal forms library".

Another test has demonstrated that this problem is related to the fact

that the folders are in a shared mailbox. If I run this in my

personal mailbox there is no problem.

Previously on this forum, I was directed to set "Allow script in

shared mailbox" in the Outlook settings in order to get the code

behind my custom form to run. Could this be another similar setting

required ? I have scanned through the options, but haven't yet found

anything that fixes this.
