Accessing Outlook from MS Excel

The post will help you in exporting details like email id, sender's name, date and time of email lying in your Outlook inbox. Similarly, you can modify code to access to export/access other details from Outlook to MS Excel. If your now thinking what will be the use of this code. The answer is very simple, you can take the snapshot of your inbox and know what was the age of particular email at that point of time. Also, you can maintain list of emails from where you receive emails and at times you receive data or table in Outlook which you want to export in MS Excel.
Remember, we are here to provide free MS Excel help and enhance the MS Excel knowledge of all the blog visitors

Sub exportemail1()
'Code is free to use
'Do not remove comments
'for any further help, please visit
‘for email me
On Error Resume Next
Dim emailcount As Integer
Dim OLF As Outlook.MAPIFolder
Dim ol As New Outlook.Application
'OLF is declared as mapi folder to decide'which folder you want to target
Set OLF = ol.Application.GetNamespace("MAPI").GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)
'OLF.Items.Count provide the number of mail present in inbox
emailcount = OLF.Items.Count
'by i=1 we 'are initializing the variable by value 1'else it will throw an error
i = 1
'Here I am using do while - loop to'Browse through all mail
Do While i <= emailcount
Sheet3.Cells(i + 1, 1) = OLF.Items(i).SenderEmailAddress
Sheet3.Cells(i + 1, 2) = OLF.Items(i).SenderName
Sheet3.Cells(i + 1, 3) = OLF.Items(i).SentOn
i = i + 1
'Like SenderEmailAddress SenderName SentOn'we can use other properties of email to get other 'details
Set OLF = Nothing
Set ol = Nothing
End Sub

I often work with MS Excel,and once I renamed my xls file and something must have happened... I was disappeared,because all my data was damaged. My friend advised me - recovery excel 2007 files damaged. At the outset i thought that the tool was usual. But when I used it,I changed my mind. It solved my problem for minutes and without payment as far as I remember. As said my brother,the was found on a soft forum.
