Create and Mark Complete Outlook Task in Shared Folder

Create and Mark Complete Outlook Task in Shared Folder

I have a script that creates an Outlook task and another that marks a task completed. They work well in the root "Tasks" folder. But for the life of me, I cannot find documentation that adequately addresses using a shared folder.

How can these two scripts access a shared Outlook task folder?

Create task:

CODE -->

With CreateObject("Outlook.Application").CreateItem(3)
        .Subject = "Test Task From Macro"
        .StartDate = "06/24/2015"
        .DueDate = .StartDate + 3
        .Body = "This is a Task Body"
End With 

Mark task completed:

CODE -->

v00 = "Test Task From Macro"
v01 = "06/25/2015"
v02 = v00 & "-COMPLETE- " & v01

With CreateObject("Outlook.Application").GetNamespace("MAPI").GetDefaultFolder(13).Items(v00) 
	.subject = v02
	.DateCompleted = v01
End With 

Any help will be appreciated!
