Hi all,

I am trying to find position of certain words in email body (Hi, Hello, Good morning, Kind regards). For 70% of received emails it works fine, but for some emails it does not recognize these words. If I manually forward email to me and then do a search, it finds them, but if I forward it to me via Macro, problem remains.
Can someone help me with this?

Bellow is my code.

Sub Display()
Dim oApp As Outlook.Application
Dim objFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
Set oApp = New Outlook.Application
Set objNS = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI")
Set objFolder = objNS.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)

Dim pos1 As Long
Dim pos2 As Long
Dim pos3 As Long
Dim pos4 As Long
Dim pos5 As Long

Dim msg As Outlook.MailItem

For Each objItem In Application.ActiveExplorer.Selection

Set msg = objItem.Forward

msg.HTMLBody = objItem.HTMLBody
msg.Subject = ("Test")

pos1 = InStr(msg.HTMLBody, "Hi,")
MsgBox ("pos1 " & pos1)
pos2 = InStr(msg.HTMLBody, "Hello")
MsgBox ("pos2 " & pos2)
pos3 = InStr(msg.HTMLBody, "Good morning")
MsgBox ("pos3 " & pos3)
pos4 = InStr(msg.HTMLBody, "Kind regards")
MsgBox ("pos4 " & pos4)

If pos5 = 0 Then
msg.To = "testemail@email.com"
msg.Recipients.ResolveAll
'msg.Send
msg.Display
Exit Sub
End If

If pos1 = 0 And pos2 = 0 And pos3 = 0 Then
msg.To = "testemail@email.com"
msg.Recipients.ResolveAll
'msg.Send
msg.Display
Exit Sub
End If


If Not pos1 = 0 Then
If Not pos4 = 0 Then
msg.HTMLBody = Mid(msg.HTMLBody, pos1, pos4 - pos1 + Len("Kind regards"))
End If
ElseIf Not pos2 = 0 Then
If Not pos4 = 0 Then
msg.HTMLBody = Mid(msg.HTMLBody, pos2, pos4 - pos2 + Len("Kind regards"))
End If
ElseIf Not pos3 = 0 Then
If Not pos4 = 0 Then
msg.HTMLBody = Mid(msg.HTMLBody, pos3, pos4 - pos3 + Len("Kind regards"))
End If
End If

msg.Display
Next
End Sub
 
Hi Diane, Thank you for fast reply. How can I look at source code? I am pretty new at this and this is all new to me :S

When I look at emails, there is pattern (words are spelled correctly). Also if I use, for example, InStr(msg.LBody, "Hi,") instead of InStr(msg.HTMLBody, "Hi,") then it finds its position, but I can't use it to extract email body from words Hi/Hello/Good Morning to Kind regars (which is my task) because HTML position is not the same.

Do you have another way to achieve this?

Thank you in advance!
