Mail every worksheet with address in A1

Important read this :

The code on this page is only working when you use Outlook as your mail program.
Copy the code in a Standard module of your workbook, if you just started with VBA see this page.
Where do I paste the code that I find on the internet

Check out this Tip page for changing the code on this page.
Tips for changing the code examples



This procedure will mail every Worksheet with an address in cell A1. It does this by
cycling through each worksheet in the workbook and checking cell A1 for the @ character. If found, a copy of the worksheet is made and saved with a date/time stamp, and then sent by e-mail to the address in cell A1. And finally, the file is deleted from your hard disk

Note: Copy this macro in a standard module of the file with the sheets you want to send.

Important: Read also the information below the macro

Sub Mail_Every_Worksheet()
'Working in Excel 2000-2016
'For Tips see:
    Dim sh As Worksheet
    Dim wb As Workbook
    Dim FileExtStr As String
    Dim FileFormatNum As Long
    Dim TempFilePath As String
    Dim TempFileName As String
    Dim OutApp As Object
    Dim OutMail As Object

    TempFilePath = Environ$("temp") & "\"

    If Val(Application.Version) < 12 Then
        'You use Excel 97-2003
        FileExtStr = ".xls": FileFormatNum = -4143
        'You use Excel 2007-2016
        FileExtStr = ".xlsm": FileFormatNum = 52
    End If

    With Application
        .ScreenUpdating = False
        .EnableEvents = False
    End With

    Set OutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")

    For Each sh In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
        If sh.Range("A1").Value Like "?*@?*.?*" Then

            Set wb = ActiveWorkbook

            TempFileName = "Sheet " & sh.Name & " of " _
                         & ThisWorkbook.Name & " " & Format(Now, "dd-mmm-yy h-mm-ss")

            Set OutMail = OutApp.CreateItem(0)

            With wb
                .SaveAs TempFilePath & TempFileName & FileExtStr, FileFormat:=FileFormatNum

                On Error Resume Next
                With OutMail
                    .to = sh.Range("A1").Value
                    .CC = ""
                    .BCC = ""
                    .Subject = "This is the Subject line"
                    .Body = "Hi there"
                    .Attachments.Add wb.FullName
                    'You can add other files also like this
                    '.Attachments.Add ("C:\test.txt")
                    .Send   'or use .Display
                End With
                On Error GoTo 0

                .Close savechanges:=False
            End With
            Set OutMail = Nothing

            Kill TempFilePath & TempFileName & FileExtStr

        End If
    Next sh

    Set OutApp = Nothing

    With Application
        .ScreenUpdating = True
        .EnableEvents = True
    End With
End Sub


In the macro you see that if Val(Application.Version) < 12 is True that I use
FileExtStr = ".xls": FileFormatNum = -4143
This is the normal Excel workbook format in 97-2003

If you run the code in Excel 2007-2016 it will save the new file as xlsm
But you can change that if you want

Options for all Excel versions :

Save the one sheet workbook to csv, txt or prn.
FileExtStr = ".csv": FileFormatNum = 6
FileExtStr = ".txt": FileFormatNum = -4158
FileExtStr = ".prn": FileFormatNum = 36

Options only for Excel 2007-2016 :

This are the main formats :

51 = xlOpenXMLWorkbook (without macro's in 2007-2016, xlsx)
52 = xlOpenXMLWorkbookMacroEnabled (with or without macro's in 2007-2016, xlsm)
50 = xlExcel12 (Excel Binary Workbook in 2007-2016 with or without macro’s, xlsb)
56 = xlExcel8 (97-2003 format in Excel 2007-2016, xls)

FileExtStr = ".xlsb": FileFormatNum = 50
FileExtStr = ".xlsx": FileFormatNum = 51
FileExtStr = ".xlsm": FileFormatNum = 52
FileExtStr = ".xls": FileFormatNum = 56


Early Binding

If you want to use the Intellisense help showing you the properties and methods of the objects as you
type you can use Early Binding. Bit faster also when you run your code but you can have problems when you distribute your workbooks. Excel will automatic update the reference number to Outlook when you open your workbook in a higher version of Excel/Outlook but not update it when you open it in a lower version of Excel/Outlook. With Late Binding as I used in the macro examples you not have this problem.

Add a reference to the Microsoft Outlook Library in Excel

1) Go to the VBA editor with the shortcut Alt - F11
2) Click on Tools>References in the Menu bar
3) Place a Checkmark before Microsoft Outlook ? Object Library
    Where ? is the Outlook version number

Then replace this three lines in the code

Dim OutApp As Object
Dim OutMail As Object

Set OutMail = OutApp.CreateItem(0)

With this three lines

Dim OutApp As Outlook.Application
Dim OutMail As Outlook.MailItem

Set OutMail = OutApp.CreateItem(olMailItem)
