NoteItem Object

Outlook Developer Reference

Represents a note in a Notes folder.


A NoteItem is not customizable. If you open a new note, you will notice that it is not possible to place it in design time.

The Subject property of a NoteItem object is read-only because it is calculated from the body text of the note. Also, the NoteItemBody can only be rich text, so the properties that correspond to HTML and Microsoft Word content do not apply. Although the GetInspector property will work on notes, because notes can't be customized, some of the Inspector properties, methods, and events will not apply to NoteItem objects.

Use the CreateItem method to create a NoteItem object that represents a new note.

Use Items(


), where


is the index number of a note or a value used to match the default property of a note, to return a single NoteItem object from a Notes folder.


The following Microsoft Visual Basic example returns a new note.

Visual Basic for Applications
  Set myItem = Application.CreateItem(olNoteItem)
