    Question Extract Excel attachment from Outlook

    Hello,

    Everyday at the same time I get mail from a specific email adress with an Excel document. What I would like to do is make a script that extracts the data (which is Always in the same layout) that I get in the Excel document and add it to a current database with the same data (just other dates). At the moment I do this manually but I have heard it can be done with a script. This can save me much time.

    The idea I have is this. Make a rule in Outlook that activates a script whenever a mail from the specific sender is received. This script copy - pastes all data to a masterdata file (underneath the already collected data). However im getting stuck at the script part. Hopefuly someone can help me.

    Kind regards,
    Mark

    Since you have O365, you could use Power Query (probably named Get & Transform) to easily reach into emails and harvest the data from attached Excel files.
    Let me know if you're interested in that approach.
