Hello Outlook Group:

I am trying to reference a CUSTOM user folder at the same level as all the

other folders:

For example, I have a folder called MyEmails that appears in the Outlook

tree as follows:

Calendar

Contacts

Deleted Items

Drafts

Inbox

MyEmails

The VBA code I'm using from Access works for the Inbox, but fails on the

MAPI setup of the MyEmails Folder:

Set Inbox = OlApp.GetNamespace("Mapi").GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)

Set MyEmailFolder = OlApp.GetNamespace("Mapi").Folders("MyEmail")

I don't want to the the GetDefaultFolder because it isn't one. Does anyone

know the code to create the Namespace for "MyEmail"?

Thanks,

Rich Locus

I finally came up with the code to do this... I had to refer to the Parent

directory of the Inbox:

Set MyEmailFolder =

OlApp.GetNamespace("Mapi").GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox).Parent.Folders("MyEmail")
