E-Mail: Set the cursor
Author: Michael BauerHomepage
Date: 24.03.2011Accessed: 11389

The Outlook object model doesn't support to set the cursor to a certain position. However, that's possible when Word is used as the e-mail editor.

Until Outlook 2003 Word was optional, since Outlook 2007 it's always used (since then this doesn't apply to emails only but to all of the item types).

The example demonstrates how to set the cursor to the end position of the message field.

Public Sub SetCursor()
  Dim Ins As Outlook.Inspector
  Dim Doc As Word.Document
  Dim Range As Word.Range
  Dim Pos As Long

  Set Ins = Application.ActiveInspector
  Set Doc = Ins.WordEditor
  If Not Doc Is Nothing Then
    Pos = Doc.Range.End - 1
    Set Range = Doc.Range(Pos, Pos)
  End If
End Sub
