    Replace entire subject line

    I have a macro I made a few years ago, which replaces a value in the subject lines of all emails you've selected. The code is below. I ran into a snag this morning, and am at a loss as to how to work around it. My macro was already working if I want to replace a value with nothing; in that case, for "nothing" I just leave the field blank. But today I ran into a situation where I wanted to replace the full subject line with a different value. Putting an Asterisk in the Text to Replace causes the macro to replace nothing, and putting nothing in the Text to Replace also causes no replacement. How would I tell me macro to replace ALL of the subject line?

    As far as I know VBA Replace doesn't work with wildcards, so if you've put '*' as the value you want to replace then replace is going to try and find the literal string '*'.
    If posting code please use code tags, see here.

    I agree, but knowing that still doesn't help with "How would I tell me macro to replace ALL of the subject line? "

    Check if RepWhat is '*' and if it is replace the entire subject line with RepWith.

    Whoops, almost forgot to post my updated macro. I try to make it habit to post the final solution (or at least MY final solution) in case someone else needs it.
