Mr. GetRight

Need a little help.

I'm using Outlook 2003, trying to make a macro that inputs a set statment in

the body of a message. I got it to do it but the problem is my statement

needs to be in front of the attachment that is already in the message but it

keep going behind it. Also for some reason it is removing the first letter

from my statment. I copy and pasted the main parts of it below, ...

Code:
Option Explicit 
 
Public icn As String 
 
Public myOlApp As New Outlook.Application 
 
Public myEmail As Object 
 
Public myAttachment As Object 
 
Sub FormateEmail() 
 
Set myEmail = myOlApp.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem 
 
Set myAttachment = myEmail.Attachments 
 
myEmail.To = "email@someplace.com" 
 
myEmail.Subject = "Subject Line" 
 
myEmail.Body = "output statement 1=" + icn + " Output statement2" 
 
End Sub

As your example completely overwrites the body of the message, there's no

reason to see how anything else could be there - except it's an rtf

message, in that case you need to set the position of the attachment(s).
