I'd be tempted to create a emailable sheet on the fly, paste values, then paste formats then use that sheet to be emailed

What format is the file being saved as?

Have you looked at the temporary file being created?

Looks like it could be a text file or an xlOpenXMLWorkbook and those formats could lose some information.

FileExtStr = ".xls": FileFormatNum = -4143

FileExtStr = ".xlsx": FileFormatNum = 51

if you want a regular workbook you might try:

FileExtStr = ".xls": FileFormatNum = 56
