SearchFolders object (Office)

A collection of ScopeFolder objects that determines which folders are searched.


For each application, there is only a single SearchFolders collection. The contents of the collection remains after the code that calls it has finished executing. Consequently, it is important to clear the collection unless you want to include folders from previous searches in your search.

You can use the Add method of the SearchFolders collection to add a ScopeFolder object to the SearchFolders collection; however, it is usually simpler to use the AddToSearchFolders method of the ScopeFolder that you want to add because there is only one SearchFolders collection for all searches.
