How to AutoSave Attachments that meet a criteria to a folder on a local drive

Mr. Walnuts

I should start by saying that I have never used VBA for Outlook. I can

use basic Outlook Functions; mail rules, data files, etc.

I -do- however have experience using Macros & VBA for Excel

2003/2007/2010.

I'm making an excel application to automate as much of a friend of

mine's administrative tasks as possible for his work. Does anyone know

whether or not you can make a macro on Outlook or Excel to retrieve

email attachments from Outlook, file the attachments in a specified

location on his computer based on Outlook rules, and add the

attachment name to a database on Excel so that the attachments can be

referenced and opened from an excel worksheet that lists the

attachments?

I realize this is an Outlook forum, so really if someone could give me

insight on how to get the Outlook part of it (Autosaving Email

Attachments based on specified criteria to a folder on the computer); I

can setup the Excel side myself.

Also, does anyone know of any decent online tutorials about Using

Outlook and Excel together to automate tasks?

If you want to run the code by a rule, use a Run-a-Script-Rule, for which

the declaration looks like this:

Public Sub WhatEver(Mail as Outlook.MailItem)

' your code

End Sub

In that procedure you can check the Mail.Attachments collection for whether

there's at least one attachment. Also, see the Attachment.SaveAsFile

function.

Outstanding... Thank you.

Thats exactly what I needed. I just was not familiar with the Outlook

VBA Object Model. Anyone have a link to an Outlook VBA Object quick

reference?

See the object browser (f2), and switch from <All Libraries> to Outlook.
