  • Hi ClaudioMed,

    This is not an Office App related question. I will move your thread to Outlook for Developers forum where you can get better help.

  • All folders in PF favorites are children of the Favorites folder, there is no folder hierarchy.

  • Hi Dmitry,

    This is a great problem for me, because i have many folders double.

    Example: \Faorites\Tienne\Societa   and   \Faorites\TnMed\Societa

    how do I recognize the folder Societa ?

    then, if I analyze the active folder with:

    application.ActiveExplorer.currentfolder.folderpath

    how can I go back to the correct folder?

    there is a way to overcome this problem ?

    Thanks

  • What exactly do you see in the folder tree view when that folder is selected?

  • I see the correct tree of the Favorites tree :

    Public folders\Faorites\Tienne\Societa   if i select the link of the folder Societa of Tienne

    or 

    Public folders\Faorites\TnMed\Societa   if i select the link of the folder Societa of TnMed

    'Tienne' or 'TnMed' are two different companies end 'Societa' is the folder with the contacts for each company.

    Thanks

  • Hi Dmitry,

    The problem also arises when i set the folder with:
    Set Fol = Application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem.Parent

    Fol.FoderPath is \\Public folders\Favorites\Societa

    While today the problem not arises if i set the folder with:

    strPath=application.ActiveExplorer.currentfolder.folderpath

    strPah is \\Public folders\Favorites\TnMed\Societa

    I don't understand why yesterday gave me the problem, and not today.

    Thanks
