    Break Contents of Email into different cells

    I have the following code which works great at importing the emails, the only issue is the entire body is put in column D.

    What I would like is for the code to import from outlook based on the subject line & then after each new line break add the text to the next column till it is completed. So this is the body of the email that comes out to me:

    Written without testing but maybe try this straight after you add the body.

    Re: Break Contents of Email into different cells

    This works flawlessly, however there is one condition that I forgot to include. I only want emails that has the subject line starting with "Offbooks/TSA Request:" to be pulled from Outlook - I know it would be an If Then statement, however not 100% sure where it would fit into the code. Would it be before or after the For Each line?

    It would go after the For Each to test each subject before applying logic:

    Is there a line that will also pull the category that the email has been marked as in Outlook?

    I suggest you bookmark the office object model - it has all the objects, properties & methods of whatever app you need and is a handy reference. This is the link to the Categories collection in Outlook: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/off...ook.categories and it has sample code you should be able to adapt.

    Categories is a collection; it will return a string of all categories assigned to an item separated by a comma. I don't have categories in Outlook (not supported by IMAP) but this should give you the idea:
