Returns a Results collection that specifies the results of the search. Read-only.

expression .Results

expression A variable that represents a Search object.

The following Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example searches the Inbox for items with a subject that equals "Test" and displays the names of the senders of the e-mail items returned by the search. The AdvanceSearchComplete event procedure sets the boolean blnSearchComp to True when 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) 
 MsgBox "The AdvancedSearchComplete Event fired" 
 blnSearchComp = True 
End Sub 
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 
 Set rsts = sch.Results 
 For i = 1 To rsts.Count 
 MsgBox rsts.Item(i).SenderName 
End Sub
