Public Folders in Outlook

Can anyone tell me how to reference a public folder from an outlook process? so far i have:

    Set myNameSpace = GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set mySourceFolder = myNameSpace.Folders(mySource)

where the namespace find the personal folders and mysource is a string variable containing the name of the folder i want to open. How do i get the getnamespace to see the public fodlers?

please for the sake of my sanity help me


RE: Public Folders in Outlook

Here you go. I did something similar, but not exactly what you would like. I used this script to open a form from personal or organization forms library...Something like this should get you going though:

    Function Item_Open()

    Set MyNameSpace = Application.GetNameSpace("MAPI")
    Set PublicFolders = MyNameSpace.Folders("Public Folders")
    Set AllPublicFolders = PublicFolders.Folders("All Public Folders")
    Set MyFolder = AllPublicFolders.Folders("folder1name")
    Set SubFolder = MyFolder.Folders("folder2name")
    Set MyItems = SubFolder.Items
    Set MyItem = MyItems.Add("IPM.Post.formname")
End Function
