Mail every WorkSheet with address in A1 with SendMail 

The code on this page is working with all Microsoft mail programs.

Note: With SendMail it is not possible to
1) Send text in the Body of the mail
2) Use the CC or BCC field
3) Attach other files

If you want to have the options above and more and use Microsoft Outlook as your mail program then use the Outlook object model examples from my site so you have much more control and options.

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: if you use Windows Live Mail the address must exist in your contacts.

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

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
