Items Property

Returns an Items collection as a collection of Microsoft Outlook items in the specified folder.


*expression   * Required. An expression that returns a MAPIFolder object.


This Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example uses the Items property to obtain the collection of ContactItem objects from the default Contacts folder.

Sub ContactDateCheck()
    Dim myOlApp As Outlook.Application
    Dim myNamespace As Outlook.NameSpace
    Dim myContacts As Outlook.Items
    Dim myItems As Outlook.Items
    Dim myItem As Object
    Set myOlApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    Set myNamespace = myOlApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set myContacts = myNamespace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderContacts).Items
    Set myItems = myContacts.Restrict("[LastModificationTime] > '01/1/2003'")
    For Each myItem In myItems
        If (myItem.Class = olContact) Then
            MsgBox myItem.FullName & ": " & myItem.LastModificationTime
        End If
End Sub

If you use Microsoft Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript) in an Outlook form, you do not create the Application object, and you cannot use named constants. This example shows how to use the Items property in VBScript code.

Set myNameSpace = Application.GetNameSpace("MAPI")
Set myFolder = myNameSpace.GetDefaultFolder(10)
Set myItems = myFolder.Items
