    Folder Description Property - max size of string (Outlook 2002 (106515.6735) SP3)

    The MAPIfolder object has a Description property.

    The VBA help file says:
    "Returns or sets a String representing the description of the folder. This property corresponds to the MAPI property PR_COMMENT. Read/write."

    How do I find out the maximum size of this string can be?

    By trying to enter a long description interactively and checking when you can't enter any more text. It turns out that the maximum length is 255 characters.

    That seems happily consistent with the maximum size of text fields in Jet-powered databases. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> Happily unless you want to store more text. <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    Yup, all makes sense. And 255 characters is probably plenty for what I want to do.
    Thanks
