    Follow up flag in Outlook (Access 2003/SP3)

    Is there a way to change the follow up flag in Outlook from VB in Access? I tried to download sample #49 on Helen Feddema's site, but it timed out - does this provide the answer I am looking for?

    Thanks,

    You can manipulate it using Automation. If you don't know what that is, see <!profile=WendellB>WendellB<!/profile>'s tutorial Automation 101 and search this forum for outlook.application, you'll find several code examples.

    The MailItem object in the Outlook object model has three properties that relate to follow-up flags:
    FlagStatus (can be olFlagMarked, olFlagComplete and olNoFlag)
    FlagRequest (the associated text, can only be set if FlagStatus has been set to olFlagMarked)
    FlagDueBy (a date, can only be set if FlagStatus has been set to olFlagMarked)
