Hi, bsharath.

That's easy enough to do if those lines are consistent (that is, if the always have the same format).  Do they?

printer s.no                   --  AFT44007867419

Some time some extra fields...
If the mail has extra fields then create a new sheet and place them there...Or put it in the same sheet so that i can sort them later

Sorry to be so slow.  This should do it.  Select as many messages as you want, so long as they all match the pattern you gave, and run the macro.  It'll process all of them and put them into an Excel spreadsheet, one row per message.




Sub ParseMessage()
    Dim olkMessage As Outlook.MailItem, _
        arrLines As Variant, _
        varLine As Variant, _
        arrLine As Variant, _
        varKey As Variant, _
        excApp As Object, _
        excBook As Object, _
        excSheet As Object, _
        intIndex As Integer
    Set excApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    Set excBook = excApp.Workbooks.Add()
    Set excSheet = excBook.Sheets(1)
    intIndex = 1
    For Each olkMessage In Application.ActiveExplorer.Selection
        arrLines = Split(olkMessage.Body, vbCrLf)
        For Each varLine In arrLines
            arrLine = Split(varLine, "--")
            If UBound(arrLine) = 1 Then
                varKey = Replace(arrLine(0), Chr(160), "")
                varKey = Trim(varKey)
                Select Case varKey
                    Case "printer model"
                        excSheet.Cells(intIndex, 1) = arrLine(1)
                    Case "printer s.no"
                        excSheet.Cells(intIndex, 2) = arrLine(1)
                    Case "customer name"
                        excSheet.Cells(intIndex, 3) = arrLine(1)
                    Case "problem type"
                        excSheet.Cells(intIndex, 4) = arrLine(1)
                    Case "contact person name"
                        excSheet.Cells(intIndex, 5) = arrLine(1)
                    Case "contact number"
                        excSheet.Cells(intIndex, 6) = Chr(34) & arrLine(1) & Chr(34)
                End Select
            End If
        Next
        intIndex = intIndex + 1
    Next
    'Change the path/filename on the following line as needed
    excBook.SaveAs "C:\eeTesting\BSharath.xls"
    excBook.Close

Where do you want the date to go, the begining, the end, somewhere in the middle?
