Email sending with subject line in Chinese Characters


Active Member

I have some code that works fine on my machine, but when my coworker runs it, the subject line comes through as Chinese characters. The email still sends with the file attached, but the subject line has the Chinese characters. Has anyone seen this before or have any ideas as to why this is happening? Any help would be greatly appreciated.


If y = 0 Then
    If CurrentTime1 > "12:00" And Mid(ActiveWorkbook.Name, 11, 8) = todaydate1 And Mid(ActiveWorkbook.Name, 20, 2) = "PM" Then
        Message = MsgBox("Do you want to send email?", vbYesNo, "Send Email")
                nwMessge = MsgBox("Do you need to save the current file?", vbYesNo, "Save File Prompt")
                If nwMessge = vbNo Then
                    'Do Nothing
                ElseIf nwMessge = vbYes Then
                    Cancel = True
                    Exit Sub
                End If
            If Message = vbNo Then

            ElseIf Message = vbYes Then
            Dim Recip()
                   With ActiveWorkbook
                        ReDim Preserve Recip(0)
                        Recip(0) = ""
                        ReDim Preserve Recip(1)
                        Recip(1) = ""
                        ReDim Preserve Recip(2)
                        Recip(2) = ""
                        ReDim Preserve Recip(3)
                        Recip(3) = ""
                        ReDim Preserve Recip(4)
                        Recip(4) = ""
                        ReDim Preserve Recip(5)
                        Recip(5) = ""
                        'and so on
                        .SendMail Recipients:=Recip, _
                        Subject:="Standard " & Format(Date, "mm-dd-yy") & " PM.xlsm"
                    End With
            End If
    End If
'''do nothing, user is opening this file from their email and is likely not the person updating the sheet
End If
