Is is possible to grab a number from the subject of an Outlook message using VB Script? For example if I get a lot of messages that have the subject 10/02/123456 but the 123456 changes every message (it's an order number) but is always 8 characters in length and always follows that pattern.

If so, any one have an example or link. I want to take that number and the parse to another program but wasn't sure how to grab it first.
