    How To Insert/Embed Outlook Email into excel worksheet using VBA

    Hi Folks,

    I would need your help to insert the outlook email message(saved in the same path as of my macro file) into the excel worksheet.

    I tried recording the macro and altering the code with a dynamic path and it ended up with the runtime error -> " xxx(output email name).msg:: File format invalid".

    My VBA code:

    You have multiple problems on this line of code:

    What is the data type of Email? On this line you are trying to use it as an object but in later you are trying to use it as a String.

    In any case, you are trying to open an Outlook email as if it were an Excel file, and that just won't work. That is why you are getting the error.

    I would try this. I have not tested it.

    Hi Jeff,

    Thanks for your code!

    I have used Email -> to assign the email name (as a reference) using a set keyword, similar to a worksheet reference say eg: set wk = XPath & "\temp.xlsx".

    As per my requirement, I would need to attach the email to the worksheet which is in the same folder as my macro excel file. Now, I understood why the error occurred based on your comments.

    I tried your code and it works fine. Thanks again.

    This is incorrect. The Set keyword is used to cause an object variable to reference the same object on the other side of the "=" sign. For example:

    You cannot use the Set keyword to assign a String to a Worksheet object or any other object.
