Remarks

If you add a View to a Views collection of a folder that is not the current folder, you must first save a copy of the Views collection object and then add the View to this collection object, as shown in the code sample below. This is a work-around for an existing problem which will otherwise cause a call to Apply() for the added View to fail.

Sub CalendarView()
    Dim calView As Outlook.View
    Dim vws As Outlook.Views
Application.ActiveExplorer.CurrentFolder = _
    Application.Session.GetDefaultFolder( _
    Outlook.OlDefaultFolders.olFolderInbox)

' Current folder is Inbox; add a View to the Calendar folder which 
' is not the current folder. Keep a copy of the object for the 
' Views collection for the Calendar
vws = Application.Session.GetDefaultFolder( _
    Outlook.OlDefaultFolders.olFolderCalendar).Views

' Add the View to this Views collection object
calView = vws.Add("New Calendar", _
    Outlook.OlViewType.olCalendarView, _
    Outlook.OlViewSaveOption.olViewSaveOptionThisFolderEveryone)
calView.Save()
' This Apply call will be fine.
calView.Apply()

End Sub

private void CalendarView()
{
    Outlook.View calView;
    Outlook.Views vws;

    Application.ActiveExplorer().CurrentFolder = 
        Application.Session.GetDefaultFolder( 
        Outlook.OlDefaultFolders.olFolderInbox);

    // Current folder is Inbox; add a View to the Calendar folder which 
    //is not the current folder. Keep a copy of the object for the 
    //Views collection for the Calendar
    vws = Application.Session.GetDefaultFolder( 
        Outlook.OlDefaultFolders.olFolderCalendar).Views;

    //Add the View to this Views collection object
    calView = vws.Add("New Calendar",
        Outlook.OlViewType.olCalendarView, 
        Outlook.OlViewSaveOption.olViewSaveOptionThisFolderEveryone);
    calView.Save();
    // This Apply call will be fine.
    calView.Apply();
}
