MAPIFolder.GetTable Method

Obtains a Table object that contains items filtered by Filter.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook (in Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.dll)

Table GetTable(
	Object Filter,
	Object TableContents


Type: System.Object

A filter in Microsoft Jet or DAV Searching and Locating (DASL) syntax that specifies the criteria for items in the parent Folder.

Type: System.Object

Specifies the type of items in the folder that GetTable returns. The default is olUserItems.

Return Value

Type: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.Table
A Table that contains items in the parent Folder that meet the criteria in Filter. By default, TableContents is olUserItems and the returned Table contains only the filtered items that are not hidden.

If Filter is a blank string or the Filter parameter is omitted, GetTable returns a Table with rows representing all the items in the Folder. If Filter is a blank string or the Filter parameter is omitted and TableContents is olHiddenItems, GetTable returns a Table with rows representing all the hidden items in the Folder.

For more information on filters, see Filtering Items and Referencing Properties by Namespace.

GetTable returns a Table with the default column set for the folder type of the parent Folder. To modify the default column set, use the Add, Remove, or RemoveAll methods of the Columns collection object. When TableContents is olHiddenItems, the default column set is always the default column set for a mail folder even though the parent Folder might be, for example, a Contacts folder. For more information on default column sets, see Default Properties Displayed in a Table Object.

You can use _Table.Restrict to apply subsequent filters to a Table that is based on the Folder object.
