How do I run a rule by using a toolbar icon?

I have Outlook 2007 and have a rule set up to delte spam by detecting certain

words in the spam.

Here is what someone gave me but it does not work:

Sub RunRuleDeleteSpam()

Dim oNS As Outlook.NameSpace

Dim oStore As Outlook.Store

Dim colRules As Outlook.Rules

Dim oRule as Outlook.Rule

Set oNS = Application.GetNameSpace("MAPI")

Set oStore = oNS.DefaultStore

Set colRules = oStore.Rules

Set oRule = colRules.Item("Delete Spam")

oRule.Execute

End Sub

If I run it it highlights the set oRule line and stops, I guess. I know

nothing about programming, I'll admit, but am not ignorant on computer

processes. I thought if I could make a macro to run a rule then I could put

the macro in a toolbar icon and just click on it instead of having to go

through a series of clicks.

What do you think? Is the formula wrong or what?

What does the error message say? I guess the rule "Delete Spam" doesn't

exist.

Best regards

No error just highlights the the line

Yes, the rul Delete Spam does exisit, I can run it manually all the time.

I tried to export the rules and put the file here but it did not work.

I have the rule name Delete Spam

No error just highlights the line as I stated below. That is it.

if you modify the code to this:

On Error Resume Next

Set oRule = colRules.Item("Delete Spam")

MsgBox Err.Description

what does the prompt tell you?
