I am trying to run a macro in outlook 2003 and I am getting the error above, any help would be appreciated.

the macro is shown below:

Sub type1()
    Dim strMessage, olkItem, olkReply, olkInbox, olkNewFolder
    strMessage = "Thank you for forwarding your CV which we have received. We look forward to working with you."

    Set olkItem = Application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem
    Set olkReply = olkItem.Reply
    With olkReply
        .Subject = "Confirmation of receipt"
        .Body = strMessage
        .Send
    End With
    On Error Resume Next
    Set olkInbox = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI").GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)
    Set olkNewFolder = olkInbox.Folders.Add("Type 1")
    Set olkNewFolder = olkInbox.Folders("Type 1")
    If olkNewFolder Is Nothing Then
    Set olkNewFolder = olkInbox.Folders.Add("Type 1")
    End If
    Set olkForward = olkItem.Forward
    olkForward.Recipients.Add "email@email.com"
    olkForward.Send

Hi,

Try using :

    Set olkItem = Application.ActiveExplorer.Selection.Item(1)

instead in line 5 in your code.

Just to explain a bit about why this problem cropped up, the original line of code

    Set olkItem = Application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem

gets the open item.  You were getting an error because there was no open item.  The line of code

    Set olkItem = Application.ActiveExplorer.Selection.Item(1)

that smozgur had you use in its place gets the selected item instead of the open item.
