Note Beginning with Microsoft Office 2010, this object or member has been deprecated and should not be used.


expression. ItemCountExceeded

expression A variable that represents a SharedWorkspaceLinks object.

Return Value



The Shared Workspace task pane can only display 99 shared workspace files and folders, links, members, or tasks. If more than 99 items are added to any of these collections: the corresponding tab of the Shared Workspace task pane stops displaying the list of items and displays a link to the shared workspace site Web page instead; the collection is no longer populated locally and its Count property returns 0 (zero).

Furthermore, once the ItemCountExceeded property returns True for one of the collections listed above, the developer can no longer remedy the situation programmatically by deleting items from the collection to reduce the count below 99, because the collection is no longer populated.


The following example checks the Count property of the SharedWorkspaceLinks collection. If Count returns 0 (zero), it checks the ItemCountExceeded property to determine whether in fact the shared workspace has no saved links, or whether it has more than 99 and the links collection has been cleared.

    If ActiveWorkbook.SharedWorkspace.Links.Count = 0 Then 
        If ActiveWorkbook.SharedWorkspace.Links.ItemCountExceeded Then 
            MsgBox "More than 99 links in shared workspace.", _ 
                vbInformation + vbOKOnly, "Item Count Exceeded" 
            MsgBox "No links in shared workspace.", _ 
                vbInformation + vbOKOnly, "No Links" 
        End If 
    End If
