I have a macro that will add an attachment to the current Outlook message,

but I can't figure out how to get the macro to run automatically when the

message is opened. The message is a template (.oft). I'm new to Outlook

macros, can anyone help?

Thanks,

Jim
 
Jim, see the NewInspector event.

Best regards

That requires an event handler, not a macro. Since you're new to VBA, I

would suggest that you stick to the macro approach and write one that starts

by loading the .oft file:

Sub MyMacro

Dim newItem as Outlook.MailItem

Set newItem = Application.CreateItem("C:\my template.oft")

newItem.Attachments.Add "C:\myfile.doc"

newItem.Display

End Sub

That will probably save you the step of locating the .oft file.
