Export Outlook email content to Access database using script
Posted on 2011-02-10
I get some gaming statistics via email after each game/session and in Outlook I’ve got a rule set up that places the email in it’s own folder. The email looks exactly the same every time in the sense of structure. What I would like to do is store the stats in an Access database.
To check the structure I selected the text and did a simple copy paste into excel and it retained a nice tabular format. Unfortunately if you were to just select all and pasted it into excel it didn’t work so hot since the email has embedded pics it uses as a background.
I would like to see if I can run a script that will extract the contents and place it into Access for me like it did when I pasted it into Excel. I for now I am not looking for it to be perfect I just would like to see it in Access. Currently I am running Office 2010.
