I need a outlook macro that can insert a specific attachment

Resolved Question:

I need a outlook macro that can insert a specific attachment that I use over and over. I don't need the macro to send the email. Just insert the attachment while I am replying to a customer request. I'm using outlook 2010.

Hi

Welcome to JustAnswer.com

I am Coding Guru and today, I will be trying my best to solve your issue.

Please use the below macro:

Sub SendMailWithAttachment()

Dim OutlookApp As Object
Dim pdf As Object

Set OutlookApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set pdf = OutlookApp.CreateItem(0)


With pdf
.To = ""
.Subject = ""
.Body = ""
.Attachments.Add "C:\Macros\Tata.pdf"
pdf.Display
End With


Replace the C:\Macros\Tata.pdf with the path of your attachment. If you have any queries, let me know.

I don't want to send the email nor do I need to update the subject line. I would be replying to a customer inquiry. Each one is unique. I just want the macro to insert the attachment. That is all.

Expert:  Ansh P. replied 11 months ago.
Thanks Gary.

You can use the below:

IMPORTANT part is, you have to replace the path C:\Macros\Tata.pdf where your pdf file is stored. For example, if it's stored in a folder called Test in D drive, the path will be D:\Test\abc.pdf, where abc.pdf is the file name.


Sub SendMailWithAttachment()

Dim OutlookApp As Object
Dim pdf As Object

Set OutlookApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set pdf = OutlookApp.CreateItem(0)


With pdf
.Attachments.Add "C:\Macros\Tata.pdf"
pdf.Display
End With
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

I tried and receive a compilation error. Sub SendMailWithAttachment() is highlighted in yellow and below End With is says end sub is expected.

Expert:  Ansh P. replied 11 months ago.
Gary, please give me 10 minutes. I will modify the code to attach the pdf in an existing mail, the above code is for opening a new outlook window with attachment in it.
Expert:  Ansh P. replied 11 months ago.

'Use the below:

Sub SendMailWithAttachment()

Dim CurrentMessage As MailItem
Set CurrentMessage = ActiveInspector.CurrentItem

CurrentMessage.Attachments.Add "C:\Macros\Tata.pdf"

End Sub

 

 

'Make sure to change the attachment path.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.

Received another compile error. CurrentMessage.Attachments.Add C:\test.pdf" was highlighted in red and Sub SendMailWithAttachment() was in yellow

Expert:  Ansh P. replied 11 months ago.
Try this:

Sub SendMailWithAttachment()

Dim CurrentMessage As MailItem
Set CurrentMessage = ActiveInspector.CurrentItem

CurrentMessage.Attachments.Add "C:\test.pdf"

End Sub


Also, is the test.pdf file stored in C: drive?

I have another project. Can you program a custom addin? I would like a custom rule that would move emails that have specific words in the subject line and specific phrases in first 15 words of the body of the email to a specific folder.


 


Is this doable?
