The pst file is stored in the profile path of the MSOUTLOK

Since the path of the pst can be varied by the user, as can its name, ie it
neednt be in the install default path, your app would first have to search
for the pst, then you would have to figure out if it/which was the current
There are alleged to be third party apps that can read a pst, so presumably
this is possible.
OL will not send any mail unless it is open, and polling.
Perhaps just use the default mail handlers to create the mail and send (to

Linking to Excel files via VBA
Good morning all, I'd create linked tables (Excel spreadsheets) programmatically to extract certain data prior to manipulation. I don't want to import this data, as there's much MUCH more than I need - I only need to get some recordcounts from SQL based on these spreadsheets (identical structure), then manipulate that data. I'll be parsing over 50 directories for files with certain names, and obviously this will be much simpler if automated. I've got all the code done except for the automation of the linked tables, and VBA help is not helpful, nor is google - I'...

Linked files and UNC paths
Whenever I link an excel file to my publisher file, the link always goes to the unc path of the excel file, instead of the drive letter. Due to planned moves and renames of our file servers, we would like to have everything pointing to drive letters instead of UNC paths. In excel en word, this behaves properly, if I link a file on a mapped network drive, it will keep the drive letter. In publisher, it doesn't.
