    First Outlook Macro

    I set a project for myself this weekend. Implement a usefull macro in Outlook 2000 that will also explore the Outlook Object model.

    This is the first macro I have written for Outlook (but not my first macro).

    The initial project I have chosen is a macro that can:
    a)be clicked in any Outlook folder
    b)determine if it is a Notes folder, if not exit with a message.
    c)determine the current view properties of this folder
    d)walk the folder tree from that folder and apply the same properties to all the subfolders
    e)Have an optional debug mode that will show the tree as it is walked. The debug mode will be selected by a "Debug Mode" button at startup for the application. The other buttons on the startup form will be "Cancel" and "Run"

    The second version of this macro will expand it's coverage to other Outlook items (messages, etc).

    My question is.

    Is this feasable? If not, I will choose some other learning project.

    PS: I am starting my journey here.

    The Super-Easy Guide to the MS Outlook 2000 Object Model
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.microsoft.com/technet/Outlook/TechNote/supreasy.asp>http://www.microsoft.com/technet/Outlook/T...te/supreasy.asp</A>

    I welcome any pointers to code examples or other self-help sites on the net.

    I am NOT looking (at this time) for instructions on how to actually do it. I learn best by working through the problems myself.

    FYI:
    1)I am creating a new PST to use for testing.
    2)I use IMO, and at this time do not plan to go beyond IMO for this macro.


    TIA

    slipstick would be the only other reference you need. if you decide you need a book, Sue's programming ol in 24 hours is good.

    Tx Mary.
    No, I am trying to save trees.[img]/w3timages/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    I assume from your lack of negatives that everything I want to do is feasable.

    And, yes, I have added explore slipstick in detail to my project plan.

    PS: You may remember the genesis of this project. I asked you if there was a way to set defaults for all notes. You said no. I said (to you), darn. I said (to myself), not acceptable.

    Have a good one.

    i actually only glanced over it the first time - but on second look it looks like it should work - although views may not be exposed in ol2000... they are in outlook'02
