Macro creation for Outlook insert subject

Status
Not open for further replies.
I have a user who wants to create a simple Outlook Macro to insert the same line of text into the subject field in Outlook that they have to type 100's of times a day. They are using Windows XP SP3, Outlook 2007 w/SP2, anybody who could help?




I have found this online (see below), which works, but you have to have an email open. I would like to have one that opens a new email with the subject line inserted.




Sub InsertSubject()


Dim olkMsg As Outlook.MailItem


'Get the currently open message'


Set olkMsg = Outlook.Application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem


olkMsg.Subject = "My text"


'Destroy the object to avoid memory leaks'


Set olkMsg = Nothing


End Sub




I also found this which users say should work for exactly what I need it for, but when putting it in VB editor the line with "Outlook.Application" is highlighted in red and when trying to run it I get a compile error.




Public Sub NewEmail()


Dim objApp As Outlook.Application


Dim objMessage As MailItemSet objApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")


Set objMessage = objApp.CreateItem(olMailItem)


objMessage.Subject = "My Text"


objMessage.Display


Set objMessage = Nothing


Set objApp = Nothing


End Sub






I am a server admin, so I don't know much about this stuff, just trying to help a user/friend out. Any ideas would be great! Thanks guys!

Set olkMsg = Application.CreateItem(olMailItem)

olkMsg.Subject = "My text"

olkMsg.Display
