I've been looking through the forums and there's plenty on how to send emails through Outlook.

What I'm looking into at the moment is emailing when Outllook might not be the available application, and Excel might be anywhere between '97 and the latest version.

I've had a look at this code which was pointed to on another post:
http://vbaexpress.com/kb/getarticle.php?kb_id=311.
This appears to be the right way to go, but can anyone give some pointers on problems I'm likely to encounter (or even better, the complete fully tested code with right-up, user manuals and technical support?)

Basically, I can't trust little old ladies to be able to attach spreadsheets to emails - I'm even having to put code in to discourage them from printing the spreadsheet and snail-mailing it back to me.
So the idea is that I send them a questionnaire on a spreadsheet and provide a button (as big as I can make it with wording like 'Press Here to Send Spreadsheet Back to County Hall - No, take your finger off the screen and use the mouse....No, put the rodent down and do a CLAIT course') which will attach the spreadsheet to an email using whatever their email application is.

Many thanks for any help!

Links? Where??
If Excel says you have links but you can't find them, go to Formulas, Name Manager. Look for old links to dead workbooks & delete.

That's what I love about this board.

Looks like the perfect answer in about 4 minutes!
Even Google couldn't beat that.

Thanks Krishnakumar.
