Outlook 2003 - Macro Help

On a monthly basis I must copy the e-mails in forty files and paste them in to a file on my hard drive. Basically, Go to the file > select all > edit > copy then paste into a file on my hard drive. I will like to automate this task with a macro instead of doing each file separately. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Outlook 2003 macro might be a good start. However, your use of "file" (where you probably mean "Outlook folder" and "Windows folder" respectively) makes me suspect you're not a programmer, so you will have a steep learning curve. Moreover, I doubt if pasting into a non-Outlook environment (the "file" on your hard drive) can be done with a macro from Outlook. So it might be impossible this way. Then see if Export works.

Correct, I am not a programmer, I am a slave to "Record a Macro" in Excel.
Yes folders are correct, not files. Pasting from Outlook folder into a hard drive folder is possible as I do it all the time. I will check out your suggestion and get back to you.
