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.
Copy the code into the module 'ThisOutlookSession'. For instance, it can be started by pressing alt+f8.
Private m_Folder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
Private m_Find As String
Private m_Wildcard As Boolean
Public Sub FindFolder()
Dim Folders As Outlook.Folders
Set m_Folder = Nothing
m_Find = ""
m_Wildcard = False
Name = InputBox("Find Name:", "Search Folder")
If Len(Trim$(Name)) = 0 Then Exit Sub
m_Find = Name
m_Find = LCase$(m_Find)
m_Find = Replace(m_Find, "%", "*")
m_Wildcard = (InStr(m_Find, "*"))
Set Folders = Application.Session.Folders
If Not m_Folder Is Nothing Then
If MsgBox("Activate Folder: " & vbCrLf & m_Folder.FolderPath, vbQuestion Or vbYesNo) = vbYes Then
Set Application.ActiveExplorer.CurrentFolder = m_Folder
MsgBox "Not Found", vbInformation
Private Sub LoopFolders(Folders As Outlook.Folders)
Dim F As Outlook.MAPIFolder
Dim Found As Boolean
For Each F In Folders
If m_Wildcard Then
Found = (LCase$(F.Name) Like m_Find)
Found = (LCase$(F.Name) = m_Find)
If Found Then
Set m_Folder = F
If Not m_Folder Is Nothing Then Exit For
