Hi All,

I was wondring if some kind person could give me some help with a VBA Script. I normally program in perl and Shell and havent done any VBA to date.

We currently have a shared mailbox with the following structure:

MAILBOX

|

|-INBOX
|_UNIX
| |_COMPLETED
| |_SUCCESS
|
|_LINUX
| |_COMPLETED
| |_SUCCESS
|
|_SOLARIS
|_COMPLETED
|_SUCCESS

when a job is requested we get a noticifcation into the respective mailbox, example, if we got a job into the UNIX folder the subject would be

"S12310 - Deployment Request: UNIX PT ENV" the S12310 is a job ID which changes per email that is recieved.

When the job is completed we we get an email delivered into the SUCCESS folder with a subject of

"SUCCESS on S12310 UNIX:pT:BUILD (SOME MORE TEXT HERE)"

what I would like to do is check the SUCCESS folder for mails that come in, when a new mail does arrive in the SUCCESS folder, I want to grab the number "S12310" out of the subject then search the top folder, either UNIX, LINUX or SOLARIS Folders and move any message that has that id in the subject to the COMPLETED folder.

I really do now know where to start with VB as I normally work on Unix systems.

I would appreciate some help with this if possile.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi,

This procedue will let you maunally pick the TOP folder and then search the SUCCESS folder for UNREAD mails only

- You can delete the line regarding UNREAD emails to search the all mails in the SUCCESS folder.

For each UNREAD mail it will loop through the entire TOP folder and move emails after comparing the selected part of the subjects

Sub TEST()

Dim myNameSpace As Outlook.NameSpace

Dim myTopFolder, mySuccessFolder As Folder, myCompleteFolder As Folder

Dim myMailItem As MailItem

Dim strSubject, SearchString1, SearchString2 As String

Set myNameSpace = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI")

Set myTopFolder = myNameSpace.PickFolder 'Pick the TOP folder

Set mySuccessFolder = myTopFolder.Folders("Success") 'Set SUCCESS folder

Set myCompleteFolder = myTopFolder.Folders("Complete") 'Set COMPLETE folder

For Each myMailItem In mySucessFolder 'Search in SUCCESS

If myMailItem.UnRead = False Then Exit For 'Search only UNREAD mails

strSubject = myMailItem.Subject

SearchString1 = Mid(strSubject, 12, 6) 'Obtain the unique ID

For Each myMailItem In myTopFolder 'Loop through TOP

strSubject = myMailItem.Subject

SearchString2 = Mid(strSubject, 12, 6) 'Obtain the Unique ID

If SearchString2 = SearchString1 Then myMailItem.Move (myCompleteFolder) 'Compare and Move to COMPLETE

Next

Next

End Sub
