This Microsoft Visual Basic/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 sub routine following the one below immediately stops the synchronization.
syc variable is declared as a public variable so it can be referenced by both the sub routines.
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 syc.Start End If Next End Sub Private Sub StopSync() MsgBox "Synchronization stopped by the user." syc.Stop End Sub
