here is some code that searches the outlook inbox and then lists the subject line in a list box. i also attatched a sample database for you to look at.

'------needs a reference to Microsoft Outlook 12.0 object library
On Error Resume Next

Dim Olook As Outlook.Application
Dim oNs As Outlook.NameSpace
Dim oFldr As Outlook.MAPIFolder
Dim OMail As Outlook.MailItem
Dim LookFor As String


Set Olook = New Outlook.Application
Set oNs = Olook.GetNamespace("MAPI")
Set oFldr = oNs.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)



LookFor = "a"
Me.ListBox.RowSource = ""
For Each OMail In oFldr.Items
        With OMail
          If InStr(.Subject, LookFor) Then
          Me.List1.AddItem (OMail.Subject)
          End If
        End With
Next OMail
         
    Set OMail = Nothing
    Set oFldr = Nothing
    Set oNs = Nothing
    Set Olook = Nothing
   
outlookInbox.accdb
