Outlook 2010: Open custom form via your own ribbon
Author: Michael BauerHomepage
Date: 13.10.2010Accessed: 17940

In Outlook 2010 you can create your own tab on the ribbon with commands to call VBA functions.

First copy the code into the module 'ThisOutlookSession'. This VBA sample creates a new item in the current folder and uses your custom form ('ipm.note.my_test') for that.

How to create the tab: Click File/Options, then 'Customize Ribbon'. Click 'New Tab', and rename the tab and group if you like.

Now select 'Macros' from the 'Choose commands from' listbox. Select the macro and click the 'Add' button

Public Sub AddMyForm()
  Dim Items as Outlook.Items
  Dim Item as Object
  Set Items=Application.ActiveExplorer.CurrentFolder.Items
  Set Item=Items.Add("ipm.note.my_test")
End Sub
