Outlook 2010 rule to export data to Excel?
I have just been setting up the Help Desk feature of our VLE (Frog) so that staff can submit problems which are then sent to my email address.
Does anybody know of a way of creating an email Rule which would parse the email for subject headings and then split the data off and export it to Excel or Access?
For example, an email arrives to me looking like this:
I would like the email to arrive and Outlook to recognise the headings and export the data into a spreadheet/database. This way I can keep a long term log of faults.

You "could" set it up like this:
Run vba script to copy to textfile, then run excel macro which would be setup to import the data.
"Should work" (Disclaimer ), but not exactly "smooth", and would need to be able to actually run the scripts/excel etc on a computer.
