    Exporting with VB (2000)

    I can't seem to locate the command in VB for exporting folders (to a CSV, in this instance). It exists, doesn't it?
    thanks,
    Manuel

    I think you need to tell this story in a little more detail:
    1. <LI>What folder(s) do you want to export?
      <LI>How much control do you want over the field information?
      <LI>Will this be a stand-alone VB app or are you writing VBA code inside of Outlook?
    It's also helpful to let us know whether you found a way to do what you want to do interactively in Outlook and, if so, what it is. This can save time in identifying the relevant methods in the Outlook object model (if any).

    Detail, of course....
    The event I would like to automate is the weekly export of my Task items to a CSV file. Presently I simply select 'File/ Import and Export', and in the wizard I export to a CSV file my Task folder (from the Exchange mailbox profile), and a few output fields. It'd sure be nice if a VBA macro would do this within Outlook.
    I suppose it'd be nicer if a stand-alone VB app would do it, although that's not important at the time. If anyone would share on how I could do that, I'd much appreciate that too.

    Not that it's VB, but using a command-line utility such as AutoIt will accomplish much of the same functionality. HTH
