TableView.Language property (Outlook)

Returns or sets a String value that represents the language setting for the view. Read/write.



expression A variable that represents a TableView object.


The Language property uses a String to represent an ISO language tag. For example, the string "EN-US" represents the ISO code for "United States - English."

If a valid language code is specified, the object will only be available in the View menu for the specified language type. If no value is specified, the object item is available for all language types. The default value for this property is an empty string.


The following Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example sets the language type of all View objects of type olTableView to U.S. English.

Sub SetLanguage() 
 'Sets the language of all table views to U.S. English. 
 Dim objViews As Outlook.Views 
 Dim objView As Outlook.View 
 Set objViews = _ 
 'Iterate through each view in the collection. 
 For Each objView In objViews 
 Debug.Print objView.Name 
 'If view is of type olTableVIew then set language. 
 If objView.ViewType = olTableView And objView.Standard = False Then 
 objView.Language = "EN-US" 
 End If 
 Next objView 
End Sub
