Excel Macros : Send Email with VBA

The Code I am sharing with you today is capable of sending active sheet of your workbook through outlook mail to email ID specified by you. You will not get any warning messages and the email will be sent using outlook profile available on your machine.

This code saves active sheet to temp file and then email it to the recipient. Once the mail has been sent the temp file is deleted by the code.

You will need to copy this code to regular VBA module of your workbook

Sub EmailActiveSheetWithOutlook()

Dim oApp, oMail As Object, _
tWB, cWB As Workbook, _
FileName, FilePath As String

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

'Set email id here, it may be a range in case you have email id on your worksheet

Mailid = ""

'Write your email message body here , add more lines using & vbLf _ at the end of each line

Body = "Please find enclosed " & vbLf _
& vbLf _
& "Thanks & Regards"

'Copy Active Sheet and save it to a temporary file

Set cWB = ActiveWorkbook

Set tWB = ActiveWorkbook
FileName = "Temp.xls" 'You can define the name
FilePath = Environ("TEMP")

On Error Resume Next
Kill FilePath & "\" & FileName
On Error GoTo 0
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
tWB.SaveAs FileName:=FilePath & "\" & FileName, FileFormat:=56
Application.DisplayAlerts = True

'Sending email through outlook

Set oApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set oMail = oApp.CreateItem(0)
With oMail
.To = Mailid
.Subject = "Update Message Subject here"
.Body = Body
.Attachments.Add tWB.FullName
End With

'Delete the temporary file and restore screen updating

tWB.ChangeFileAccess Mode:=xlReadOnly
Kill tWB.FullName
tWB.Close SaveChanges:=False
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Set oMail = Nothing
Set oApp = Nothing

End Sub

    your scripts are very very useful. it saves lots of time. hats off to you.

  9. Hi Yougesh,

    This works like a charm on most PC's, but I have one user that will get an Outlook notification whether to allow or deny sending this email. Do you have any idea on how to get this suppressed or a workaround not to see this on some PC's (at the moment only one).

    Thanks in advance,
    Jesper Andersen
