Hi all,

I have a problem with this code VBA. Works well when I send a message, replace the year. The problem is when I need to replay or forward a message, don´t replace and give me a Error 91. I would like this code for change the years old of company in my signature.

Thank for your help :).

***************Code**************************
Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)
Dim dataY As Date, year_X As Double
dataY = Date
year_X = Year(dataY) - 1973
Application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem.HTMLBody = Replace(Application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem.HTMLBody, "#year_old#", year_X)
End Sub
**********************************************

Are you using the reading pane to reply? That doesn't use active inspector, it uses ActiveInlineResponse.

Actually, in looking closer, you're using item send - it doesn't use current item, just item - the message is the item in "item as object"

Try this instead -
Code:
Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)
Dim dataY As Date, year_X As Double
dataY = Date
year_X = Year(dataY) - 1973
item.HTMLBody = Replace(item.HTMLBody, "#year_old#", year_X)
End Sub

Diane, you are the best :)! You were absolutely right about reading panel to answer or forward. I followed your suggestion and Works 100%. Thank you very much for share your know-how 🥂.
