    Rules Wizard: Run a Scripts? (Office 2003 SP2)

    I have a mail that I receive every Monday from a particular sender.
    I receive the email and detach and archive the attachment.

    I recently wrote a macro that does the business for me. When I go to Tools > Macro > Macros my getAttachment macro is there and I can run it and it's all dinky doo.

    However, I would like to create a rule that will execute my macro.
    But when I select the " run a script" check box in the rules wizard, there are no scripts in the dialog box that comes up.

    I think I am getting mixed up with what a macro is , and what a script is.
    Hopefully, one of you guru's can clarify this for me.
    I've searched through the forum and I can see a few references to handling attachments, but nothing as simple as this.

    Thanks in advance.

    Your VBA sub needs to include an argument referencing the Item that the Rule is operating on. See <!mskb=306108>Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 306108<!/mskb>, especially the paragraph just before the code sample, and the code sample itself.

    The Rules Wizard says "script" but it means "VBA procedure" AKA macro. The example in <post#=351149>post 351149</post#> illustrates the parenthetical you add to make it appear in the Rules Wizard's list. Of course, procedures with parameters do NOT appear on the macros list...
