Hello,

I think I have solved the problem.

I did some changes in the script that you can see below, but even with that

changes my problem persists. Nevertheless I have found a way to make it work

at least until now.

What I have done is to put the invokation to the script in a rule that also

changes the category of the received emails. So the rule has two actions:

update the category of the email and exectue my script. Since I did this

change the script has worked non-stop.

Final script:

========== CODE =========Sub MacroRE(Item As Outlook.MailItem)

On Error GoTo MacroRE_err

Dim olNS As Outlook.NameSpace

Dim olMail As Outlook.MailItem

Dim newSubject As String

Set olNS = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI")

Set olMail = olNS.GetItemFromID(Item.EntryID)

newSubject = Replace(newSubject, "Re: ", "RE: ")newSubject =

Replace(newSubject, "RE: RE: ", "RE: ")

newSubject = Replace(newSubject, "RE: RE: ", "RE: ")

newSubject = Replace(newSubject, "RE: RE: ", "RE: ")

newSubject = Replace(newSubject, "RE: RE: ", "RE: ")

'While InStr(1, olMail.Subject, "RE: RE: ") > 0

' newSubject = Replace(newSubject, "RE: RE: ", "RE: ")

'Wend

If newSubject <> olMail.Subject Then

olMail.Subject = newSubject

olMail.Save

End If

' Clear memory

MacroRE_exit:

Set olMail = Nothing

Set olNS = Nothing

Exit Sub

' Handle errors

MacroRE_err:

MsgBox "An unexpected error has occurred." _

& vbCrLf & "Please note and report the following information." _

& vbCrLf & "Macro Name: MacroRE" _

& vbCrLf & "Error Number: " & Err.Number _

& vbCrLf & "Error Description: " & Err.Description _

, vbCritical, "Error!"

Resume MacroRE_exit

End Sub

======== END CODE ========

Outlook script macro issue

Hi,

I've created a script for use with a rule in Rules Wizard and have put it

into a module in my VbaProject.OTM. The first times that the rule runs it

works fine. However, after some time it stops working without giving any warn

or error. It seems like if it doesn't execute.

The only way I have found to make it work again is deleting the

VbaProject.OTM, restarting Outlook and typing the macro again. The problem is

that it stops working again after some executions.

Do you know any possible solution to this? I'm using Microsoft Office

Outlook 2007 (12.0.6316.5000) SP1 MSO (12.0.6320.5000).

The script is as follows:

==================

Sub RemoveDoubleRE(Item As Outlook.MailItem)

Dim olNS As Outlook.NameSpace

Dim olMail As Outlook.MailItem

Set olNS = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI")

Set olMail = olNS.GetItemFromID(Item.EntryID)

olMail.Subject = Replace(olMail.Subject, "RE: ", "Re: ")

olMail.Subject = Replace(olMail.Subject, "Re: ", "Re: ")

While InStr(olMail.Subject, "Re: Re: ") > 0

olMail.Subject = Replace(olMail.Subject, "Re: Re: ", "Re: ")

Wend

olMail.Save

Set olMail = Nothing

Set olNS = Nothing

GC.Collect

GC.WaitForPendingFinalizers

End Sub

==================

Thanks in advance,

Javier

I don't know it exactly. Reading a forum someone recommended putting them at

the end of the script. I tried to solve me problem with them but it remains

the same. So the script stops working with and without those lines.

The GC lines are not something that should be in an Outlook macro or script.

They are for calling the managed code garbage collector when using a

language like C# or VB.NET, not for VBA code.

Any error in a rule script will disable that script and the rule. Is your

rule being disabled? If so you have to look to see what errors are being

generated by your code.

Curiously when it stops working the rule remains active in the rules

configuration option. In fact, its checkbox is still marked. If there were

any errors, where could I find them and wouldn???t it fail always instead of

after some right executions?

Normally it would disable the rule if the script threw an error and since

you have no error handling there I'd expect to see an error message if the

script code did fire an error.

It's possible that only certain items are causing errors, but that doesn't

explain it not showing any error messages. About the only thing I can think

of would be to simplify and temporarily comment out most of the script code

and see if it stops running then. If it doesn't then uncomment lines one at

a time and see when it stops running.

The code should also work with OL03. Do you get any errors?
