JournalItem Object

Multiple objects

Represents a journal entry in a Journal folder. A journal entry represents a record of all Microsoft Outlook-moderated transactions for any given period.

Using the JournalItem Object

Use the CreateItem method to create a JournalItem object that represents a new journal entry. The following example returns a new journal entry.

Set myOlApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set myItem = myOlApp.CreateItem(olJournalItem)

Use Items (index), where index is the index number of a journal entry or a value used to match the default property of a journal entry, to return a single JournalItem object from a Journal folder.


If a program tries to reference any type of recipient information by using the Outlook object model, a dialog box is displayed that asks you to confirm access to this information. You can allow access to the Address Book or recipient information for up to ten minutes after you receive the dialog box. This allows features, such as mobile device synchronization, to be completed.

You receive the confirmation dialog box when a solution tries to programmatically access the following properties of the JournalItem object:

  • ContactNames
  • Body
