I am trying to open an Outlook 2010 email template with Excel. I get the following error:
“Run-time error ‘-2147287038 (80030002)’:
Cannot open file:
C:\My\Path\MyTemplate.oft. The file may not exist, you may not have permission to open it, or it may be open in another program. Right-click the folder that contains the file, and then click Properties to check your permissions for the folder.”
The file exists (in the right place), I have checked permissions (as far as I know how), and the file is not already open.
Here is my code:
Sub Mail_experiment() Dim OutApp As Outlook.Application Dim OutMail As Outlook.mailitem Set OutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application") Set OutMail = OutApp.CreateItemFromTemplate("C:\My\Path\MyTemplate.oft") On Error Resume Next With OutMail .to = "[email protected]" .CC = "" .BCC = "" .Subject = "This is my Subject line" .Send End With On Error GoTo 0 Set OutMail = Nothing Set OutApp = Nothing End Sub
Thank you for any help!!!
“I tried my code on a different computer and it worked. I went back and changed the file name of my template, as the previous name was in all capitals (shouldn’t matter, right?). I got a message about needing to be an administrator to do this, which I thought was strange since this is my personal home computer. However, when I clicked “continue” it went ahead and changed the name. Now it works. – David Elphee Sep 14 ’14 at 13:23″
