Based on your earlier post:
Private Sub appOL_NewMailEx(ByVal EntryIDCollection As String)

On Error GoTo EH

   Dim arrEID As Variant, varEID As Variant, olkItem As Object
   arrEID = Split(EntryIDCollection, ",")
   Dim Atmt As Outlook.Attachment
   Dim FileName As String
   Dim MYDOC_DIR As String: MYDOC_DIR = Environ("userprofile") & "\Documents"
    
    For Each varEID In arrEID
        Set olkItem = appOL.Session.GetItemFromID(varEID)
        If olkItem.Class = olMail Then
            If InStr(olkItem.Subject, "Drilling Data") > 0 Then
                'Your code goes here'
                    For Each Atmt In olkItem.Attachments
                        FileName = MYDOC_DIR & "\Lesedi Drilling Data\" & Convert_Email(olkItem.SenderEmailAddress) & "_" & Atmt.FileName
                        Atmt.SaveAsFile FileName
                    Next Atmt
    
               oLoop
            End If
        If InStr(olkItem.Subject, "New Holes") > 0 Then
                'Your code goes here'
                    For Each Atmt In olkItem.Attachments
                        FileName = MYDOC_DIR & "\Lesedi Drilling Data\New Holes\" & Convert_Email(olkItem.SenderEmailAddress) & "_" & Atmt.FileName
                        Atmt.SaveAsFile FileName
                    Next Atmt
    
               oNewHole
            End If
        End If
    Next
    Set olkItem = Nothing
    Exit Sub
EH:
    MsgBox "There was an error processing an incoming email! " & Err.Description
End Sub
