Hi
I am after a code which will save my excel attachment into the c drive from outlook 2016

the email comes every hour and uses the same subject in the email header

the email goes into a folder in my inbox called internet

I am a total newbie so any help would be great

please note I get this email every hour so need this to save on the drive each hour or I can do it manually through a macro

thanks

You can use a macro that watches the folder for new items added to it - this macro will save all attachments but lower on the page is a code sample that saves by file extension.

Option Explicit

Private WithEvents olInboxItems As Items

Private Sub Application_Startup()
Dim objNS As NameSpace
Set objNS = Application.Session
' instantiate objects declared WithEvents
Set olInboxItems = objNS.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox).Items
Set objNS = Nothing
End Sub

Private Sub olInboxItems_ItemAdd(ByVal Item As Object)
On Error Resume Next
If Item.Attachments.Count > 0 Then

Dim objAttachments As Outlook.Attachments
Dim lngCount As Long
Dim strFile As String
Dim sFileType As String
Dim i as long

Set objAttachments = Item.Attachments
lngCount = objAttachments.Count
For i = lngCount To 1 Step -1

' Get the file name.
strFile = objAttachments.Item(i).FileName

' Get the path to your My Documents folder
strFolderpath = CreateObject("WScript.Shell").SpecialFolders(16)
strFolderpath = strFolderpath & "\OLAttachments\"

' Combine with the path to the folder.
strFile = strFolderpath & strFile

' Save the attachment as a file.
objAttachments.Item(i).SaveAsFile strFile

Next i
End If

End Sub
