Data Type

Description

Store

Required

Variant

The path of the .pst file to be added to the profile. If the .pst file does not exist, Microsoft Outlook creates it.

Type

Required

OlStoreType

The format in which the data file should be created.

Use the olStoreUnicode constant to add a new .pst file that has greater storage capacity for items and folders and supports multilingual Unicode data, to the user's profile. The olStoreANSI constant allows you to create .pst files that do not provide full support for multilingual Unicode data, but are compatible with earlier versions of Outlook. The olStoreDefault constant helps you create a .pst file in the default format that is compatible with the mailbox mode in which Outlook runs on the Microsoft Exchange Server.

This Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example adds a new Personal Folders (.pst) file that has greater storage capacity for items and folders and supports Unicode to the user?s profile.

 Set myNameSpace = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI") 
 
 myNameSpace.AddStoreEx "c:\" & myNameSpace.CurrentUser & "\.pst",olStoreUnicode 
 
End Sub
