Hello all,

I am trying to create a macro for Outlook 2003 that will open a new

message, populate the From Field, populate the Subject field (these

never change), and then populate the body of the email (which also

never changes). I am very new to this. My goal is to steamline the

process down to "click a button, get a populated email".

I have the first part:

Dim olkMsg As Outlook.MailItem

Set olkMsg = Application.CreateItem(olMailItem)

olkMsg.SentOnBehalfOfName = "Email address"

olkMsg.Subject = "My Subject"

olkMsg.Display

And the message:

Selection.TypeText Text:="Good morning,"

Selection.TypeParagraph

Selection.TypeParagraph

> ... and so on

When I run the macro, the first part executes fine. I run into problems

with the body of the email, because I keep getting the following error:

Run-time error '424': Object Required

What object should come between the first part of my macro and the

text?

Thank you!

AndreaP

The Selection object refers to the Word library, Outlook doesn't know that.

You can use the Word library only in Outlook 2007, or if you have set to use

Word as email editor. In both cases you can access the email as a Word

Document object via the olkMsg.GetInspector.WordEditor property.

Best regards
