Copy email body to Excel file, multiple lines

Hi happy helpers

I have come across an issue with reading the email body from an Outlook message and then pasting the value into Excel.
I use the get outlook message activity and read the email.body. No problem.
The email body contains plain text, maybe 500 lines, sometimes up to 30.000 lines.
The problem starts when I use the write cell to write the text in Excel. It pastes the entire text in one cell instead of 500 lines as the example above.
How can I get it to write the email.body to 500 lines in Excel?

Thank you


You can try like this save the mail message as .eml format and then open the file and use data scraping to get it as datatable.

Let us know if this helps,

… many more lines

Line number 1 and 9 are always the same (static text)
The lines I need are from line 9 and down, and they always have this comma separated format, but it is ok to extract the full text as we have a macro which deletes line 1-8.
