I have hundreds of emails that got forwarded from a web form to my email

account. Each email has the same body contents, in that they all have this

basic format below (with different data after each colon). I would like to

try to get a script that can go though this folder, and take the data the

people provided and place it all into Excel rows/columns at one time.

Currently, I copy/paste it into Excel, then I have a macro that takes it from

its current format and moves the data into appropriate fields. This is great,

but can only be done, one email at a time.

Any suggestions?

Add_to_BW_Email_List:

Anniversary_Day:

Anniversary_Month:

BirthdayDay:

Birthday_Month:

address:

city:

email:

name:

state:

submit:

zip:
 
You can loop through the Items collection of the folder to access each item.

The data is found in the Body property, use the Instr, Left, Right, or Mid

functions to find and extract what you're looking for.

Add a reference to the Excel library to your Outlook VBA project via

Tools/References. Then use the object browser (f2), switch from <All

Libraries> to Excel and see what's available: For instance, Workbooks.Open

opens a workbbok. It has a Sheets collection, and there's a Range object for

working with cells.

Best regards

work?

hi all

just a thought if the body text is divided up by colons you might want to

look at split

BodyArray=split(Myitem.body,":")

this will give you array each element will be the text between the colons
