• Connect to an existing application (uses the GetObject method)
• Create a new application with no document loaded (uses the CreateObject method)

Scan a user specified Novell Groupwise folder, and save all files of a specific type to the directory specified in the code.

Examples of where this function shines:
Assume that you have emailed out 600 surveys in a word document, and you want to save them all to a folder for further processing. Rather than have you save each file to the folder manually, this code will extract them all at one time.

This code can be very easily adapted to work with any type of file, since it examines the last three letters (the extension) of each attachment to an email. This means that you do not need a program capable of opening the file on your hard drive to run this code. ...
