Hi,

I am using outlook 2013 (32 bit) and I have this piece of code in my Excel spread sheet. It finds a e-mail in a folder opens it and extracts the spread sheet. The part of the code which finds the folder now doesn't work, it did work in outlook 2010 (32Bit)

Set mynamespace = Outlook.Application.GetNamespace("MAPI")
' Set the Source to the mail Inbox folder for AFMA Green data
' Set the Target to the mail sub folder for archiveing
Set SourceFolder = mynamespace.Folders("Risk Quantitative")
' Find the Inbox
iLoopcounter = 1
Do Until iLoopcounter > SourceFolder.Folders.Count
If SourceFolder.Folders(iLoopcounter) = "Inbox" Then
Set SourceFolder = SourceFolder.Folders(iLoopcounter)
Exit Do
End If
iLoopcounter = iLoopcounter + 1
Loop

When you run ? SourceFolder.Folders.count you should get 13, I now only get 0 and so the next piece of code fails
' Find AFMA Green
iLoopcounter = 1
Do Until iLoopcounter > SourceFolder.Folders.Count
If SourceFolder.Folders(iLoopcounter) = "AFMA Green" Then
Set SourceFolder = SourceFolder.Folders(iLoopcounter)
Exit Do
End If
iLoopcounter = iLoopcounter + 1
Loop

To add to the problem I have Four mailboxes

Any thought would be great

I added debug prints after the loop counter is set, and after each increment. I get:
1 Start
2 Inbox
14afma green

The only change I made was to change the mailbox name and the folder names to ones that exist here.
 
I have several e-mail accounts in the same profile. If I have only one email account in the profile it works fine.
You get a error 'Run-time error '440': Array index out of bounds.' which is reasonable as the line reads 'Set TargetFolder = SourceFolder.Folders(1)'
 
Silly thought, Where do I fine which version of outlook 2013 I have and what is the latest version. IT update out software and we don't use Microsoft update, and I don't know if it up to date.

Thanks for your reply
 
I'd don't think the version matters - the code should work in all versions but you can look in File, Office account.

The problem is that 'Set TargetFolder = SourceFolder.Folders(1)' is having problems finding the right folders, I'm sure its related to the # of mailboxes, although I have 3 + a bunch of shared mailboxes and it worked for me.
 
I have updated to the latest version and this problem has gone. I have no idea if it was the Office 2013 updates or the Windows 8.1 updates that they did at the same time
 
I wouldn't want to even guess which updates fixed it. :)
