expression A variable that represents a SyncObject object.


This method does not undo any synchronization that has already occurred.


This Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example displays all the Send/Receive groups set up for the user and starts the synchronization based on the user's response. The subroutine following the one below immediately stops the synchronization. The syc variable is declared as a public variable so it can be referenced by both the subroutines.

Public syc As Outlook.SyncObject 
Public Sub Sync() 
 Dim nsp As Outlook.NameSpace 
 Dim sycs As Outlook.SyncObjects 
 Dim i As Integer 
 Dim strPrompt As Integer 
 Set nsp = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI") 
 Set sycs = nsp.SyncObjects 
 For i = 1 To sycs.Count 
Set syc = sycs.Item(i) 
strPrompt = MsgBox("Do you wish to synchronize " & syc.Name &"?", vbYesNo) 
If strPrompt = vbYes Then 
End If 
End Sub 
Private Sub StopSync() 
 MsgBox "Synchronization stopped by the user." 
End Sub
