Code to move mail with certain attachment name? Does Not work

I'm stuck on some code I want to run in outlook. Firstly, I can't understand when it runs, seems to be when I start outlook, but I can't step through the code in the VBA editor either.

Then I get = nothing on "objTargetFolder" when it is run.

The reason is that I receive e-mails that differ only in the name of the attachment, and that does not solve common rules in Outlook. So one of the attachments is called, for example, CALLS DAILY, I'll look for that in incoming mail attachments in the inbox Then I'll move that mail in that case to the inbox/outlookdata/Calls daily

Then the same with a few different variations on attachment names for different folders. ("report" and "statistics" code I haven't changed yet.)

can anyone see why "objTargetFolder" = nothing when run. Can't find the right folder?

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Public WithEvents objMails As Outlook.Items

Private Sub Application_Startup()
Set objMails = Outlook.Application.Session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox).Items
End Sub

Private Sub objMails_ItemAdd(ByVal Item As Object)
Dim objMail As Outlook.MailItem
Dim objAttachments As Outlook.Attachments
Dim objAttachment As Outlook.Attachment
Dim strAttachmentName As String
Dim objInboxFolder As Outlook.Folder
Dim objTargetFolder As Outlook.Folder

'Ensure the incoming item is an email
If TypeOf Item Is MailItem Then
Set objMail = Item
Set objAttachments = objMail.Attachments

'Check if the incoming email contains one or more attachments
If objAttachments.Count > 0 Then
For Each objAttachment In objAttachments
strAttachmentName = objAttachment.DisplayName
Set objInboxFolder = Application.Session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)
'Check the names of all the attachments
'Specify the target folders
If InStr(LCase(strAttachmentName), "CALLS DAILY") > 0 Then
Set objTargetFolder = objInboxFolder.Folders("Mitt.namn@min-epost.com").Folders("OutlookData").Folders("CALLS DAILY")
ElseIf InStr(LCase(strAttachmentName), "report") > 0 Then
Set objTargetFolder = objInboxFolder.Folders("Report")
ElseIf InStr(LCase(strAttachmentName), "statistics") > 0 Then
Set objTargetFolder = objInboxFolder.Folders("Statistics")
End If

I can see that the code sees the attachment in an incoming mail:
attachment.JPG

But in the next step i cant recognize the "move to" folder?
snipNothing.JPG


The folder is named exactly the same and is located -> inbox/OutlookData/callsdaily

Relly no one in the vast forum that can help me? :)
Its really strange that it works now and then, but not always.
Also when is the code active? only once after a restart of outlook?
No sometimes it runs when an emal arrives, but sometimes it dosent?
This is my code now:

Code:
Public WithEvents objMails As Outlook.Items

Private Sub Application_Startup()
 Set objMails = Outlook.Application.Session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox).Items
End Sub

Private Sub objMails_ItemAdd(ByVal Item As Object)
    Dim objMail As Outlook.MailItem
    Dim objAttachments As Outlook.Attachments
    Dim objAttachment As Outlook.Attachment
    Dim strAttachmentName As String
    Dim objInboxFolder As Outlook.Folder
    Dim objTargetFolder As Outlook.Folder
 
    'MSGbox just to se wehn scrip runs.
    MsgBox "Script running"
    
 
    'Ensure the incoming item is an email
    If TypeOf Item Is MailItem Then
       Set objMail = Item
       Set objAttachments = objMail.Attachments
 
       'Check if the incoming email contains one or more attachments
       If objAttachments.Count > 0 Then
          For Each objAttachment In objAttachments
              strAttachmentName = objAttachment.DisplayName
              Set objInboxFolder = Application.Session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)
              'Check the names of all the attachments
              'Specify the target folders
              If InStr(LCase(strAttachmentName), "calls daily") > 0 Then
                 Set objTargetFolder = objInboxFolder.Parent.Folders("OutlookData").Folders("calls daily")
              ElseIf InStr(LCase(strAttachmentName), "calls mtd") > 0 Then
                 Set objTargetFolder = objInboxFolder.Parent.Folders("OutlookData").Folders("calls mtd")
              'ElseIf InStr(LCase(strAttachmentName), "statistics") > 0 Then
              '   Set objTargetFolder = objInboxFolder.Folders("Statistics")
              End If
         Next
         'Move the email to specific folder
          objMail.Move objTargetFolder
       End If
    End If
End Sub
