Define fields within the Subject of Outlook message to use to arrange messages in public folders

We save outgoing email purchase orders in a public folder.  The subject line contains buyer code, vendor number and PO number is a specific format always in the same positions. I would like to define these fields separately without distrubing the subject line and use them with the 'arrange by' to sort the emails for ease of locating. I can successfully define the fields but am not able to determine how to associate the field name with the position in the subject line.
Thanks for your assistance.

Hi apklatoz,

I don't believe it's possible to do this without scripting and even that may not work.  The only way I think this would work is to create a script attached to a rule that'd process the purchase order messages.  The script would extract the information and populate the fields you've created.  The problem I see with this approach though is that rules and scripts like this only apply to mailboxes, not to public folders.

Cheers!
