opening a custom outlook form from access


I am trying to open a custom form that is located in the organizational library in Outlook,
and I need to open it from Access.

If anyone can help I would appreciate it.


RE: opening a custom outlook form from access

I just wanted to let you guys,
know that I figured it out.

It took way too long for this little bit of code, but here it is for any of you who are having the same problem.

Private Sub cmdtimesheet_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_cmdtimesheet

Dim ol As Outlook.Application
Dim ns As Outlook.NameSpace
Dim NewTimeSheet As Object
Dim fldr As Outlook.MAPIFolder

Set ol = New Outlook.Application
Set ns = ol.GetNamespace("MAPI")
Set fldr = ns.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderOutbox)
Set NewTimeSheet = fldr.items.Add _("IPM.Document.Excel.Sheet.8.EmployeeTimeSheet")

Exit Sub

MsgBox Err.Description
Resume Exit_cmdtimesheet

End Sub
