Items Object (Outlook)

Published: July 16, 2012

Contains a collection of Outlook item objects in a folder.

Use the Items property to return the Items object of a Folder object.

Use Items(index), where index is the name or index number, to return a single Outlook item.

Note Note

The index for the Items collection starts at 1, and the items in the Items collection object are not guaranteed to be in any particular order.

The following Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example returns the first item in the Inbox with the Subject "Need your advice."

Sub GetItem() 
 
 Dim myNameSpace As Outlook.NameSpace 
 
 Dim myFolder As Outlook.Folder 
 
 Dim myItem As Object 
 
 
 
 Set myNameSpace = Application.GetNameSpace("MAPI") 
 
 Set myFolder = _ 
 
 myNameSpace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox) 
 
 Set myItem = myFolder.Items("Need your advice") 
 
 myItem.Display 
 
End sub

The following VBA example returns the first item in the Inbox. In Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 or later, the Items object returns the items in an Offline Folders file (.ost) in the reverse order.

Sub GetItem() 
 
 Dim myNameSpace As Outlook.NameSpace 
 
 Dim myFolder As Outlook.Folder 
 
 Dim myItem As Object 
 
 
 
 Set myNameSpace = Application.GetNameSpace("MAPI") 
 
 Set myFolder = _ 
 
 myNameSpace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox) 
 
 Set myItem = myFolder.Items(1) 
 
 myItem.Display 
 
End sub
