    Hello,

    I am trying to creat a script in VB that will take data from specific columns in an Excel sheet and populate it into a text document that i can then send as a reply in Outlook. I have the script that will creat the basic "spine" of the text document but i can not figure out how to pull the data from the Excel sheet.

    here is what i have:

    Code:
    Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")    
    Set objNewFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile("C:\test2.txt")
        objNewFile.Close
    strLogFile = "C:\test2.txt"
    Set objFSO = WScript.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile(strLogFile, 8)
            objFile.WriteLine "Dear <NAME>"
            objFile.WriteLine "  "
            objFile.WriteLine "This email is in response to your feedback message:"
            objFile.WriteLine "  "
            objFile.WriteLine "Feedback Message ID:        <___>"
            objFile.WriteLine "  "
            objFile.WriteLine "Submission Date:        <Date>"
            objFile.WriteLine "  "
            objFile.WriteLine "RE:        <Description>"
            objFile.WriteLine "  "
            objFile.WriteLine "We appreciate your feedback. We are researching your request and looking into possible solutions for your suggestions."
            objFile.WriteLine "   "
            objFile.WriteLine "Thank you,"
            objFile.WriteLine "  "
            objFile.WriteLine "NAME"
            objFile.WriteLine "Title"
    
            WScript.Quit
    objFile.Close
    
    WScript.Quit(0)
    
    i would like to fill the <> with specific data from the excel sheet and i would also like to have the script create the text file with the name of the person i will be replying to, also in the excel sheet. any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you
