Email to Access

P: 1
I have made a database that can be used to recieve orders. I am currently getting orders via the email.

I am trying to find a way for the data to be stripped from the email and put into a table in access. (This will enable me to save time from the cutting and pasting I am doing now.)

I have an email account that is soley for the orders and the orders come into the account in the same format. ( They were created using a form that the customer fills in.) Unfortunately, I cannot edit, or replace the form they are using.

Can anyone help me with this? I am using Access 2002 and also Outlook 2002.

Thanks!

You have posted your question in the Access Articles section rather than the Access Forum section.
I have moved it across for you.

You may get lucky with this one, but as this is basically an Access forum, it's not unlikely that there will be no-one who can help with this question, as it requires some in-depth experience of Outlook automation.
I can only post a link to the article that deals with Application Automation in the hope that it will be of some help.
Good luck.
