Outlook Macro to place prefix on selected email subjects?
I have been trying to write a macro to bulk edit multiple email subject lines in Outlook. I want to be able to select multiple emails in outlook and run the macro, which put a prefix at the start of the subject line of all selected emails. The prefix will be determined by a pop-up box with a list of options, populated from a .txt file.
Currently I have the following code written:
Public lstText As String
Public OpenEdit As String
Public MType As String
Public Sub SetSubject()
Dim aItem As Object
OpenEdit = ""
Set aItem = GetCurrentItem()
aItem.Subject = lstText & " " & aItem.Subject
If MType = "Inspector" Then aItem.Save
If OpenEdit = "Edit" Then
If MType = "Explorer" Then aItem.Display
Set aItem = Nothing
Function GetCurrentItem() As Object
Dim objApp As Outlook.Application
Set objApp = Application
On Error Resume Next
Select Case TypeName(objApp.ActiveWindow)
Set GetCurrentItem = objApp.ActiveExplorer.Selection.Item(1)
MType = "Explorer"
Set GetCurrentItem = objApp.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem
MType = "Inspector"
Set objApp = Nothing
With the current code, the macro will only work on a single email when that email is open in a window. What do I need to edit so that this will work on multiple selected emails, applying the same selected prefix to all in the current selection?
