Hi All:

I am looking for some help with VBA and Outlook tasks (Outlook 2010 and 2013) and figured this is the best place to start ;)

I have a number of Tasks in Outlook, all labeled with a numerical hierarchy:
e.g. Task 1.0 is a Parent
Task 1.1 is a Child of 1.0
Task 1.2 is a Child of 1.0
etc.​

What I would love to do in Outlook is have a macro that could insert a table of all of the "children" tasks into the body/details of a Parent.

So if I was on Task 1.0, I could run a macro that would insert a table with:

  • Child Task Name/hyperlink
  • Child Task Due Date
  • Child Task Progress
This way, I could just keep the parent tasks open for a quick snapshot of how the children are doing.

Is there a way to use VBA to:
  1. Insert a table in task
  2. Search for tasks with like naming (e.g., if I am on Task 1.0, search for all tasks that begin with 1.x)
  3. Insert all such tasks into the table
Any help you could provide would be much appreciated!

Best,

Dan

Thanks Diane! A table is not necessary...the list is really the key.

Hi Diane:

Seeing if you have had any time to dig into this item to see if it was doable (at least getting a list of all related tasks inserted into a "parent"). Having trouble on this end finding a way to get the list.

Thanks again!

Doug
