Folders.GetNext Method (Outlook)

Published: July 16, 2012

Returns the next object in the Folders collection.

expression .GetNext

expression A variable that represents a Folders object.

Return Value

A Folder object that represents the next object contained by the collection.

It returns Nothing if no next object exists, for example, if already positioned at the end of the collection.To ensure correct operation of the GetFirst, GetLast, GetNext, and GetPrevious methods in a large collection, call GetFirst before calling GetNext on that collection, and call GetLast before calling GetPrevious. To ensure that you are always making the calls on the same collection, create an explicit variable that refers to that collection before entering the loop.

The following Visual Basic for Applications example searches the subfolders of Inbox for a folder called MyPersonalEmails and displays a message to the user. If you do not have a subfolder called MyPersonalEmails in your Inbox folder, the example will display nothing.

Sub TestGetNext() 
 
 Dim nsp As Outlook.NameSpace 
 
 Dim mpf As Outlook.Folder 
 
 Dim mpfSubFolder As Outlook.Folder 
 
 Dim flds As Outlook.Folders 
 
 Dim idx As Integer 
 
 
 
 Set nsp = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI") 
 
 Set mpf = nsp.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox) 
 
 Set flds = mpf.Folders 
 
 Set mpfSubFolder = flds.GetFirst 
 
 Do While Not mpfSubFolder Is Nothing 
 
 If mpfSubFolder.Name = "MyPersonalEmails" Then 
 
 MsgBox "The folder was found." 
 
 Exit Do 
 
 End If 
 
 Set mpfSubFolder = flds.GetNext 
 
 Loop 
 
End Sub
