Cannot populate certain UserProperties in Outlook from Excel


Outlook version
Outlook 2016 64 bit
Email Account
Office 365 Exchange

I am able to highlight a comment cell in Excel, have Excel grab adjacent cell values, create and populate post in Outlook. dARCHIVED and dHIGHLIGHT are YesNo fields with OptionButton controls. From Excel, I can create the items and set their values.

I cannot setup dTASKGROUP. dTASKGROUP is a Keywords field controlled by a Dropdown ComboBox. I've tried .add, .find, setting, and the best I can do is create the item but not set the value. I've also tried specifying other stringy UserPropertyTypes with no luck.

Sub PostInOutlook()

'**Dim and Build Strings Removed for Forum Post**

Dim OutlookNS As Outlook.Namespace
Dim OutlookFolder As Outlook.Folder
Dim OutlookPost As Outlook.PostItem

Set OutlookNS = Outlook.GetNamespace("MAPI")
Set OutlookFolder = OutlookNS.Folders("").Folders("Inbox").Folders("TASKMEISTER")
Set OutlookPost = OutlookFolder.Items.Add(olPostItem)

With OutlookPost

.Subject = z
.Body = w
.UserProperties.Add("dARCHIVED", olYesNo).Value = 0
.UserProperties.Add("dHIGHLIGHT", olYesNo).Value = 0

.UserProperties.Add("dTASKGROUP", olText) = j

.MessageClass = "IPM.Post.TaskPost100"
End With

End Sub

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you

Try doing is this way:

    Dim objProp As Outlook.UserProperty
With OutlookPost

    Set objProp = .UserProperties.Add("dARCHIVED", olYesNo, True)
     objProp.Value = 0
end with
I got it to work, thx! This alone didn't work, but I created the object, set new message class, saved it, then worked the userproperties and saved it again. Now it all works. Thx!
