    Find a subfolder (2003/SP2)

    My boss would like to search for a subfolder in Outlook.

    She has created a rather elaborate folder-subfolder-subsubfolder hierarchy and often says "I know which subfolder it's in, but I can't remember where I put the subfolder!"

    Assuming she's unwilling to change her folder system, is there a way to help her find a given subfolder in Outlook? "Find" and "Advanced Find" seem to work only for messages, not for folders.

    Thanks in advance,
    Erik

    Sounds as though a macro (Visual Basic for Applications procedure) might be needed. It might be a bit slow to search through all of the folders to find one or more matches, but probably still much faster than looking manually.

    Attached is VB code for Outlook which someone may be able to modify into a Folder search routine (I don't have time). It creates a Note item with all folder hierarchies in all information stores (if there are multiple PSTs). Run the EnumInfoStores subroutine. If it errors out let me know, I was doing some last minute tinkering. Should not be too hard to adapt it to look for a similar folder name using vb LIKE.
