- To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 1 years agoHi, i am new to macro. i am looking for a macro that allows me to save the filename, not by subject or time. But by the reference # found inside the email body. This macro works well when i save multiple emails into my folder. But as i want each email to be saved using the reference #, would you have a macro for it? The reference # is found on the 6th row of the emails body (REF : WL344ET2), that i received everyday. Appreciate if anyone can help on this and thank you in advance.

xName = Replace(xName, ":", "")
