Hello All!

I have been searching and searching and cannot seem to find something that will help me. Here's the gist of what I'm trying to do:

The user will receive an email with a link to an Excel file in it. When the user opens the file, I would like to trap the subject of that particular email. I need to trap it using Excel. I cannot write an Outlook macro, my company will not allow it. The user may have several emails with the link in it, but the subjects will be different. Parts of the subject will be the same, but if I search, I will find the first match and not the potential correct match.

For example: The user may receive emails that say

Test Email - One
Test Email - Two
Test Email - Three

If they open the link in the third email, I would like to trap the subject "Test Email - Three". If I search the emails for "Test Email -", I will find the first one and return that.

Does anyone have any suggestions for me? As a side note, I am not new to VBA. I'm just stuck!

Karen
