TaskItem Object (Outlook)

Represents a task (an assigned, delegated, or self-imposed task to be performed within a specified time frame) in a Tasks folder.

Use the CreateItem method to create a TaskItem object that represents a new task.

Use Items(index), where index is the index number of a task or a value used to match the default property of a task, to return a single TaskItem object from a Tasks folder.

The following Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example returns a new task.

Set myItem = Application.CreateItem(olTaskItem)
