The following Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example searches the Inbox for items with Subject line equal to 'Test' and saves the results in a Search Folder. The AdvanceSearchComplete event procedure sets the Boolean blnSearchComp to True when the the search is complete. This Boolean variable is used by the TestAdvancedSearchComplete() procedure to determine when the search is complete. The sample code must be placed in a class module such as ThisOutlookSession, and the TestAdvancedSearchComplete() procedure must be called before the event procedure can be called by Outlook.

Public blnSearchComp As Boolean

Private Sub Application_AdvancedSearchComplete(ByVal SearchObject As Search)

Sub TestAdvancedSearchComplete()
	Dim sch As Outlook.Search
	Dim rsts As Outlook.Results
	Dim i As Integer
 	blnSearchComp = False
	Const strF As String = "urn:schemas:mailheader:subject = 'Test'"
	Const strS As String = "Inbox"   
	Set sch = Application.AdvancedSearch(strS, strF) 
	While blnSearchComp = False
	sch.Save("Subject Test")
