Hi All:

Need some help with outlook macro...

I get emails from an id: someone@example.com

Subject line of these emails will be in three formats as below:

1.Industrial Production NSA YoY FALLS x% {IT}
2.(Surprise) Industrial Production MoM RISES x% {IT}
3.*CORRECTION* Industrial Production NSA YoY FALLS x% {IT}

Whenever I receive email from this email id, I want to

1.Modify the subject line by adding country name (based the code at the end of the subject: {IT} = Italy) as below:

a.Italy Industrial Production NSA YoY FALLS x% {IT}
b.(Surprise) Italy Industrial Production MoM RISES x% {IT}
c.*CORRECTION* Italy Industrial Production NSA YoY FALLS x% {IT}

2.Delete unnecessary content from the email

Example of email body below….I want only the part that is highlighted in Red

--- Original Sender: xxx xxx, xxxxxxxxx/ 000 xxx ---

----- Original Message -----

From: xxx xxx (xxxxxxxxx/ 000 xxx)

To: xxxxxx xxxxxxx (xxxxxx xxxxxx xx)

At: 1/13 4:00:00

Industrial Production NSA YoY (Italy) {IT}

OBSERVATION PERIOD: xxx(Monthly)

ACTUAL : -000000

PRIOR : -000000

REVISED : --

SURVEY : -- (Mean: --, High: --, Low: --)

To view breakdown of survey numbers by economist: {xxxxxx xxxxx}

To view Economic Forecast for this country: {xxxx xxx}

Chart and details: {xxxxxx xxx}

To change your alert settings: {00} and click on alert icon

To manage this alert in ALRT: {xxxx xxxx}


3.Then forward this to a distribution list eg: someone@example.com

Hi Diane:

Thanks for your reply. I am having around 10 countries and loads of question :)

Is it possible to set up the whole macro in the outlook itself? May be create a sub-folder in the inbox and set a rule to deliver all the messages that come from a particular mail id to be moved to that folder and trigger the macro whenever a new mail gets moved to this sub-folder?

Is it going to slow down my outlook if i set up the macro like that?

I am good with excel macro , but a newbie with outlook macros. I did an extensive internet search but could not find any plausible solutions. I tried accessing the link you have shared, but for some reason my office system is not allowing me to access the URL.

Thanks
Nebu

Yes, you can do this using an itemadd macro that watches the folder. No, it shouldn't slow outlook down, but it really depends on the macro.

The basics of an itemadd macro is here - http://www.slipstick.com/developer/processing-incoming-e-mails-with-macros/ - but I have many code samples on my site. The macro no this page watches a shared mailbox and sends a message -http://www.slipstick.com/developer/code-samples/process-items-shared-mailbox/

Hi Diane:

Thanks a lot, for your reply. I have manged to modify the body of the email and get the email to forward to the respective email IDs . I will have to play around a bit more and test it extensively before implementing it. I will surely post it here if I succeed . Thanks again for all your valuable suggestions and guidance.

Regards
Nebu
