Hi

I'm trying to create a macro which delete the attachments in sent

items in MS Outlook. I have found a code that works fine - the only

problem is that I have to open the mail first. And I can't find any

command which does this.

I simply want to be able to click a button in Outlook , and then run a

macro which opens the message, delete the attachments, and closes the

messaeg again.

Can anyone help me?

The code which delete the attachments is here:

*******************************

Sub DelAtt()

Set itm = Application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem

If Not itm Is Nothing Then

itm.Save

AttachmentCount = itm.Attachments.count

For lngIndex = AttachmentCount To 1 Step -1

Set att = itm.Attachments(lngIndex)

att.Delete

Next

End If

itm.Close

End Sub

*******************************

Replace this statement

Set itm = Application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem

which operates on an open item, with one that operates on the selected item:

Set itm = Application.ActiveExplorere.Selection(1)

Also, you can omit the itm.Close statement if you're not opening the item.

And the itm.Save statement needs to go after the deletions. The way you

currently have it, it does nothing at all.

Thanks for the reply.

I have tried your solution, but I'm having troubles.

I have created a shortcut in Outlook I click to run the macro, but

nothing happens when I click it. It worked fine before, so I think

it's the macro which doesn't work properly.

If I run the macro in Visual Basic, I get the following error: "Run

time error '438': Object doesn't support this property or method"

Do you have a clue about what I'm doing wrong?

The code now looks like this

****************Macro start***********************

Sub DelAtt()

Set itm = Application.ActiveExplorere.Selection(1)

If Not itm Is Nothing Then

AttachmentCount = itm.Attachments.count

For lngIndex = AttachmentCount To 1 Step -1

Set att = itm.Attachments(lngIndex)

att.Delete

Next

End If

itm.Save

End Sub

****************Macro start***********************

It's ActiveExplorer, not ActiveExplorere. My typo, sorry (but you could have

looked it up in the object browser).

After you fix that, what happens if you step through the code in the VBA

debugger?
