    This code finds emails with specific attahcments. I get this email once a day and I need this code to grab thje attachments and save them as directed...but I only want the most recent email that meets the criteria. Function CallsMove() ' This Outlook macro checks a the Outlook Inbox for messages ' with attached files (of any type) and saves them to disk. ' NOTE: make sure the specified save folder exists before ' running the macro. On Error GoTo GetAttachments_err ' Declare variables Dim myolApp As New Outlook.Application Dim ns As NameSpace Dim Inbox As MAPIFolder Dim Item As Object Dim Atmt As Attachment Dim FileName As String Dim I As Integer Set myolApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application") Set ns = GetNamespace("MAPI") Set Inbox = ns.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox) I = 0 ' Check Inbox for messages and exit of none found If Inbox.Items.Count = 0 Then MsgBox "There are no messages in the Inbox.", vbInformation, _ "Nothing Found" Exit Function End If ' Check each message for attachments For Each Item In Inbox.Items ' Save any attachments found For Each Atmt In Item.Attachments ' This path must exist! Change folder name as necessary. If Atmt.FileName Like "Call List by*" Then Atmt.SaveAsFile "P:\databases\downloads\extensionstats\Reps\" & Atmt.FileName I = I + 1 End If Next Atmt If I = 1 Then Exit For End If Next Item ' Clear memory GetAttachments_exit: Set Atmt = Nothing Set Item = Nothing Set ns = Nothing Exit Function ' Handle errors GetAttachments_err: MsgBox "An unexpected error has occurred." _ & vbCrLf & "Please note and report the following information." _ & vbCrLf & "Macro Name: GetAttachments" _ & vbCrLf & "Error Number: " & Err.Number _ & vbCrLf & "Error Description: " & Err.Description _ , vbCritical, "Error!" Resume GetAttachments_exit End Function
