Macro written in outlook/word 2010

I'm a recruiter and get many cvs emailed to me daily in outlook.

I use outlook categories to categorise these for easy searching of my inbox.

Note I don't create/use outlook contacts - i.e. i do not use the outlook contacts functionality at all (because I use a separate bespoke recruitment database software that can parse cvs individually).

For the cvs that i dont have time to parse into my recruitment database, I just write notes on the attachments (usually word doc CVs) and save them in the email in my outlook inbox.

I now have thousands of these that i want to import into my recruitment database. Which is the point of my questions.

What I want to do is import hundreds of these in bulk into my non microsoft bespoke recruitment database software. (Which can import from csv or I could also automatically parse from individual text or word docs in bulk (but not email unfortunately).


a) can i export emails to a csv with the attachments, so for each email (lets say my recruitment database is actually ms outlook but the contacts part)I can import that email to form a contact record, with the CV document attached, and the outlook categories from the email imported to that contact.

if not...

b) can I export outlook emails to INDIVIDUAL text documents (I know i can do it to one text doc), so I get a word or txt document that has the CV, and the outlook categories from the email listed in the cv (as text). Also it would be good to get the email body text and the from email address in the doc/CV too.

The outlook categories can be in text format within the attachments as i can parse specific words to fields with my database parser.

I'm assuming I may need someone to write a macro or something similar - I'm no IT genius unfortunately.

I would the facility to be able to do this on a regular ad hoc basis.

any questions please do feel free to ask.

many thanks

You can actually do both (export to csv or text documents), if you can export one so the other, the difference lies in how the file is written, hence determines the format. It isn't a problem either to insert the email More
