Outlook version
Outlook 2010 64 bit
Email Account
Exchange Server
I'm using Outlook 2010 on an exchange server.

What i'm trying to do is create a macro that will search my inbox for anything that is older than 60 days and move it to my 7 Year retention folder under Managed Folders

I can easily do this within my inbox: Example:
search inbox 60 days move to @test folder as a sub folder in the inbox....

Code:
Private Sub Application_Startup()
Dim objOutlook As Outlook.Application
    Dim objNamespace As Outlook.NameSpace
    Dim objSourceFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
    Dim objDestFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
    Dim objVariant As Variant
    Dim lngMovedItems As Long
    Dim intCount As Integer
    Dim intDateDiff As Integer
    Dim strDestFolder As String
    
    Set objOutlook = Application
    Set objNamespace = objOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set objSourceFolder = objNamespace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)
    
    ' use a subfolder under Inbox
    Set objDestFolder = objSourceFolder.Folders("@test")
    For intCount = objSourceFolder.Items.Count To 1 Step -1
        Set objVariant = objSourceFolder.Items.Item(intCount)
        DoEvents
        If objVariant.Class = olMail Then
            
             intDateDiff = DateDiff("d", objVariant.SentOn, Now)
             
            ' I'm using 7 days, adjust as needed.
            If intDateDiff > 60 Then
              objVariant.Move objDestFolder
              
              'count the # of items moved
               lngMovedItems = lngMovedItems + 1
            End If
        End If
    Next
    
    ' Display the number of items that were moved.
    MsgBox "Moved " & lngMovedItems & " messages(s)."
Set objDestFolder = Nothing

End Sub

Can someone please help me figure out how to get it to move from the inbox to the 7 year retention folder

Use .Parent.Folders("folder name") to get folders at the same level as the inbox and .folders("sub folder") to get subfolders.

So... you'd use something like this:
Dim objParent As Outlook.MAPIFolder
Dim objManaged As Outlook.MAPIFolder

Set objParent = Session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)
Set objManaged = objParent.Parent.Folders("Managed Folders")
Set objDestFolder = objManaged.Folders("7 Year Retention")
