Hi Manjuts thanks for your re

Dim Eml
Dim Arg
Set Arg = WScript.Arguments
Dim File

File = Arg(0)

Set OlApp = CreateObject(“Outlook.Application”)
Set Eml = OlApp.CreateItemFromTemplate(File)

Sub Download(objEml)
For Each Attch In objEml.Attachments
Attch.SaveAsFile "C:\Temp" & Attch.FileName
End Sub

  1. Arguments putting as PDF Path.

Getting below error


Arguments putting as eml Path.

@Mohammed_mujeeb For downloading email attachments u directly use save attachments activity na.

Actually have .eml file in my local folder because im not trying to take from email
im trying to fetch from local machine folder and extract the attachment i have a application that handle correspondence im downloading .eml from application not from Email account once i download i have to open the .eml and extract the attachments from it any commens ?.

@Mohammed_mujeeb if u have permission read the access the file, close the pdf or any other file and run the program, once again.

I do have permission and the file is not open, when i try manually open the file opens perfectly not from the program.

@Mohammed_mujeeb i am not getting whats exactly your error? Wait for someone help or try on your own.
