Hello,

I am looking to create a macro that selects a specific range (2 columns) and emails it to phone numbers (e.g. 5551112222@vtext.com).
The range looks something like this:
Apples
5%​
Oranges
4%​
Bananas
4%​
Tomatos
3%​
Other
50%​

The issue i'm running into is the fact that it needs to be cell phone friendly. I don't have a problem sending that email to regular email addresses. However, when it comes to sending it to phones, I receive them as an attachment without actual attachment. My thinking is, i want to convert this range into a text file and then send the text from a text file (but i'm not a pro)
Any ideas?

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

Hi,

I'm assuming the service centre strips all kinds of email formatting like RTF, .HTML anyway to forward it as an SMS.
So whatever works for you. Maybe just extract the text values and try that?

Here's a basic mail.
I've used column A and the offset to grab column B too. Separating them with a , and a newline with a ;

I left the message box in so you can see the output.
How it appears to the end user - you tell us.

Code:
Sub Mail_it()

EmailSubject = ""
EmailSendTo = ""
EmailCCTo = ""

Set rng = Range(Range("A1"), Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp))

For Each cell In rng

If cell.Value <> "" Then

MailBody = MailBody & cell.Value & ", " & cell.Offset(0, 1).Value & "; " & vbNewLine

End If
Next

MsgBox (MailBody)

Set OutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set OutMail = OutApp.CreateItem(o)
With OutMail
.Subject = EmailSubject
.To = EmailSendTo
.CC = EmailCCTo
.Body = MailBody
.Display
'.Send
End With

Set OutMail = Nothing
Set OutApp = Nothing
End Sub
