open some pst files at once in outlook
I need to open several pst file in my outlook to compare some relevant emails in them.
I find that I can only open one pst file every time by using "Open Outlook Data File” button. So I need to open them one by one .
Can I have a button to open several pst files at once in outlook ? Thank you.
For that, you can write VBA codes to do that. Try below macro.
First, put all the pst files which you need to open into a same folder.
Then run this macro. Please note you need to change the folder path "E:\" into your real path in code "Call LoopFolders("E:\") "
'You can change the path as per your needs
'You can also specify a folder other than a drive
'For instance - Call LoopFolders("C:\Users\Test\My Documents\Outlook Files")
MsgBox "Open Successfully!", vbExclamation + vbOKOnly, "Open Outlook Data File"
Sub LoopFolders(strPath As String)
Dim objFileSystem As Object
Dim objFolder As Object
Dim objFile As Object
Dim objPSTFile As Object
Set objFileSystem = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFolder = objFileSystem.GetFolder(strPath)
For Each objFile In objFolder.Files
'Find the pst file by file extension
strFileExtension = objFileSystem.GetExtensionName(objFile)
If LCase(strFileExtension) = "pst" Then
Set objPSTFile = objFile
'Open the PST file
'Process all folders and subfolders in the Local Drive E
If objFolder.SubFolders.Count 0 Then
For Each objSubFolder In objFolder.SubFolders
'Skip the system and hidden folders
If ((objSubFolder.Attributes And 2) = 0) And ((objSubFolder.Attributes And 4) = 0) Then
And I also attach th link of the codes he
Hope it helps.
