Can anyone help me adjust this code so that it saves the email and the attachments as one PDF file.


Code:
 Sub SaveMessageAsPDF(Item As Outlook.MailItem)
    Dim Selection As Selection
    Dim obj As Object
    Dim Item As MailItem
    
   Dim wrdApp As Word.Application
    Dim wrdDoc As Word.Document
    Set wrdApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    Set Selection = Application.ActiveExplorer.Selection
For Each obj In Selection
 
    Set Item = obj
    
    Dim FSO As Object, TmpFolder As Object
    Dim sName As String
    Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set tmpFileName = FSO.GetSpecialFolder(2)
    
    sName = Item.Subject
    ReplaceCharsForFileName sName, "-"
    tmpFileName = tmpFileName & "\" & sName & ".mht"
    
    Item.SaveAs tmpFileName, olMHTML
    
    
Set wrdDoc = wrdApp.Documents.Open(FileName:=tmpFileName, Visible:=True)
  
    Dim WshShell As Object
    Dim SpecialPath As String
    Dim strToSaveAs As String
    Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    MyDocs = WshShell.SpecialFolders(16)
       
strToSaveAs = MyDocs & "\" & sName & ".pdf"
 
' check for duplicate filenames
' if matched, add the current time to the file name
If FSO.fileExists(strToSaveAs) Then
   sName = sName & Format(Now, "hhmmss")
   strToSaveAs = MyDocs & "\" & sName & ".pdf"
End If
  
wrdApp.ActiveDocument.ExportAsFixedFormat OutputFileName:= _
    strToSaveAs, ExportFormat:=wdExportFormatPDF, _
    OpenAfterExport:=False, OptimizeFor:=wdExportOptimizeForPrint, _
    Range:=wdExportAllDocument, From:=0, To:=0, Item:= _
    wdExportDocumentContent, IncludeDocProps:=True, KeepIRM:=True, _
    CreateBookmarks:=wdExportCreateNoBookmarks, DocStructureTags:=True, _
    BitmapMissingFonts:=True, UseISO19005_1:=False
             
    
Next obj
    wrdDoc.Close
    wrdApp.Quit
    Set wrdDoc = Nothing
    Set wrdApp = Nothing
    Set WshShell = Nothing
    Set obj = Nothing
    Set Selection = Nothing
    Set Item = Nothing
 
End Sub
 
' This function removes invalid and other characters from file names
Private Sub ReplaceCharsForFileName(sName As String, sChr As String)
  sName = Replace(sName, "/", sChr)
  sName = Replace(sName, "\", sChr)
  sName = Replace(sName, ":", sChr)
  sName = Replace(sName, "?", sChr)
  sName = Replace(sName, Chr(34), sChr)
  sName = Replace(sName, "<", sChr)
  sName = Replace(sName, ">", sChr)
  sName = Replace(sName, "|", sChr)
  sName = Replace(sName, "&", sChr)
  sName = Replace(sName, "%", sChr)
  sName = Replace(sName, "*", sChr)
  sName = Replace(sName, " ", sChr)
  sName = Replace(sName, "{", sChr)
  sName = Replace(sName, "[", sChr)
  sName = Replace(sName, "]", sChr)
  sName = Replace(sName, "}", sChr)
  sName = Replace(sName, "!", sChr)
End Sub

That's not as easy as you might think. Attachments can be of a lot of different type of files, and for each file type that you want to support, you need an application that can read it and that supports to be accessed by the VBA program.

For instance, if we talk only about txt files, use the already available FileSystemObject to read it, then add that text to the Word.Document object before saving that one. In order to be able to read the content of an attachment, you first need to save the attachment as a file, see the Attachment.SaveAsFile procedure in the VBA help file.

Then you need to look for a library that can read pdf files.
