Happy Holidays everyone!
Found this script by travieman90. Works awesome-thank you!
However, I wish to email a range as an excel attachment.
Also, I want to it to pause the email so I can proof read the email before I hit send. Currently, it just sends it and I have to look in the sent items to ensure it is sent.
Can someone help me? I tried changing a few things and now I have a mess on hand, with one error after the other:(.

Thank you to everyone who has been patient and helped me along the way so far. I've learned a lot. Wishing you all the best for 2021.

VBA Code:
Sub Mail_Sheet_Outlook_Body()


'Email PM sheet after update
Dim rng As Range
Dim OutApp As Object
Dim OutMail As Object

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

Set rng = Nothing
Set rng = Sheets("DataSheet").UsedRange
'You can also use a sheet name
'Set rng = Sheets("YourSheet").UsedRange

Set OutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set OutMail = OutApp.CreateItem(0)

On Error Resume Next
With OutMail
.To = "[EMAIL]exampleemail@example.com[/EMAIL]"
.CC = ""
.BCC = ""
.Subject = "Example"
.HTMLBody = RangetoHTML(rng)
.Send 'or use .Display
End With
On Error GoTo 0

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

Set OutMail = Nothing
Set OutApp = Nothing
End Sub


Function RangetoHTML(rng As Range)
'
'
Dim fso As Object
Dim ts As Object
Dim TempFile As String
Dim TempWB As Workbook

TempFile = Environ$("temp") & "\" & Format(Now, "dd-mm-yy h-mm-ss") & ".htm"

'Copy the range and create a new workbook to past the data in
rng.Copy
Set TempWB = Workbooks.Add(1)
With TempWB.Sheets(1)
.Cells(1).PasteSpecial Paste:=8
.Cells(1).PasteSpecial xlPasteValues, , False, False
.Cells(1).PasteSpecial xlPasteFormats, , False, False
.Cells(1).Select
Application.CutCopyMode = False
On Error Resume Next
.DrawingObjects.Visible = True
.DrawingObjects.Delete
On Error GoTo 0
End With

'Publish the sheet to a htm file
With TempWB.PublishObjects.Add( _
SourceType:=xlSourceRange, _
Filename:=TempFile, _
Sheet:=TempWB.Sheets(1).Name, _
Source:=TempWB.Sheets(1).UsedRange.Address, _
HtmlType:=xlHtmlStatic)
.Publish (True)
End With

'Read all data from the htm file into RangetoHTML
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set ts = fso.GetFile(TempFile).OpenAsTextStream(1, -2)
RangetoHTML = ts.readall
ts.Close
RangetoHTML = Replace(RangetoHTML, "align=center x:publishsource=", _
"align=left x:publishsource=")

'Close TempWB
TempWB.Close savechanges:=False

'Delete the htm file we used in this function
Kill TempFile

Set ts = Nothing
Set fso = Nothing
Set TempWB = Nothing
End Function

change :
.Send
to
.Display

then it pops up for the user to review. then they can press send.

your code should save the range as its own workbook.
Then add that file as an attachement.
Then .DISPLAY.

Thanks for your suggestions and the quick response.
I changed the .Send to .Display and it stays now.
I think the following section needs to be changed to be an excel file. It still displays directly in the email as an HTML file, instead of an attachment. I tried to change it to OBJECT but clearly, it is not correct.
How to change it to an excel attachment?

VBA Code:
'Publish the sheet to a htm file
With TempWB.PublishObjects.Add( _
SourceType:=xlSourceRange, _
Filename:=TempFile, _
Sheet:=TempWB.Sheets(1).Name, _
Source:=TempWB.Sheets(1).UsedRange.Address, _
HtmlType:=xlHtmlStatic)
.Publish (True)
End With

'Read all data from the htm file into RangetoHTML
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set ts = fso.GetFile(TempFile).OpenAsTextStream(1, -2)
RangetoHTML = ts.readall
ts.Close
RangetoHTML = Replace(RangetoHTML, "align=center x:publishsource=", _
"align=left x:publishsource=")

Did you ever find a solution to send the file as an Excel file rather than HTML?
