Subject Property

Office 2003

Returns or sets a String indicating the subject for the Microsoft Outlook item. This property corresponds to the MAPI property PR_SUBJECT. The Subject property is the default property for Outlook items. Read/write.

Note  For a NoteItem object, the Subject property is a read-only String that is calculated from the body text of the note.

expression.Subject

expression    Required. An expression that returns one of the objects in the Applies To list.

Example

This Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example creates a new e-mail message, uses the Add method to add "Dan Wilson" as a To recipient, sets the Subject property, and displays the message.

Sub CreateStatusReportToBoss()
	Dim myOlApp As Outlook.Application
	Dim myItem As Outlook.MailItem
	Dim myRecipient As Outlook.Recipient
	Set myOlApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
	Set myItem = myOlApp.CreateItem(olMailItem)
	Set myRecipient = myItem.Recipients.Add("Dan Wilson")
	myItem.Subject = "Status Report"
	myItem.Display
End Sub

		

If you use Microsoft Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript) in a Microsoft Outlook form, you do not create the Application object, and you cannot use named constants. This example shows how to perform the same task using VBScript code.

Sub CommandButton1_Click()
 Set myItem = Application.CreateItem(0)
 Set myRecipient = myItem.Recipients.Add("Dan Wilson")
 myItem.Subject = "Status Report"
 myItem.Display
End Sub
