This isn't a true DASL filter, so you end up having to use ranges, in a sense. Unfortunately, you can't use Contains, DoesNotContain, etc. from the filter object reference, as you would with the Search objects. It's a little different.

The following will help you find a range of subjects all between 'test' and 'tz':

use strict; use Win32::OLE qw(in with); use Win32::OLE::Const 'Microsoft Outlook'; $|++; $Win32::OLE::Warn = 3; my $OL = Win32::OLE->GetActiveObject('Outlook.Application') || Win32::OLE->new('Outlook.Application', 'Quit'); my $NameSpace = $OL->GetNameSpace("MAPI"); my $Folder = $NameSpace->GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox); my $Items = $Folder->{Items}; my $findtext = '[Subject] > "test" and [Subject] < "tz"'; my $MailItems = $Items->Find($findtext); while (1) { print $MailItems->{Subject} ."\n"; $MailItems = $Items->FindNext() || last; }
And one should note the following (from the Outlook VB Reference):
Comparison operators allowed within the filter expression include >,<, +<=, >=,= and <>. Logical operators allowed are And Not and Or
Update: Slight modification to search string and Text from Find Object Reference.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
