    Outlook drag and drop

    I'm sorry if this is an old chestnut, but I've looked everywhere and can't find an answer.

    I am writing a VB6 project onto which I wish to drag and drop an Outlook message (Outlook 98). How do I get the message from Outlook? If I interrogate the data object passed using Text format, I just get basic information in the format of the current View set in the Outlook folder. I want to be able to access all the fields in the message, but especially From, To, Subject and Body.

    Can anyone help?

    Re: Outlook drag and drop

    you need to drill down to the folder and mail level, see <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.slipstick.com>http://www.slipstick.com</A> for information on programming outlook.

    you may need to use cdo for some of the information. <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.cdolive.com>http://www.cdolive.com</A>

    Drilling down isn't a problem - the problem is how to identify the message in the VB application

    Thanks

    the same way you would with VBA - Sue has samples on her site.
