|VBOffice Reporter is an easy to use tool for data analysis and reporting in Outlook. A single click, for instance, allows you to see the number of hours planned for meetings the next month.|
Some people have so many folders that they've got problems to find them. And with a deep hierarchy of folders it can also be a pain to click through all of them in order to activate a certain folder.
This example finds a folder by its name, and you can choose to get the found folder activated. You can either enter the full name, or use wildcards. '*' and '%' are allowed as wildcards. Upper/lower cases will be ignored. See the constant SpeedUp in the head of the module: The default setting of True means the search will be somewhat faster, however, Outlook will be blocked during the search. If the search takes too long due to a great many folders, you can set the value to False. Set the constant StopAtFirstMatch to False if the search should not stop with the first match.
Copy the code into the module 'ThisOutlookSession'. For instance, it can be started by pressing alt+f8.

|OLKeeper reliably prevents users from closing their Outlook window and thus possibly missing reminders or e-mails.|
