I am having problems with code to send an e-mail with a file attachment.
I am using Ron Debruin's method as follows:

Sub Mail_workbook_Outlook()
'This example send the last saved version of the Activeworkbook
Dim OutApp As Object
Dim OutMail As Object
Set OutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set OutMail = OutApp.CreateItem(0)
With OutMail
.To = "ron@debruin.nl"
.CC = ""
.BCC = ""
.Subject = "This is the Subject line"
.Body = "Hi there"
.Attachments.Add ActiveWorkbook.FullName
'You can add other files also like this
'.Attachments.Add ("C:\test.txt")
.Send 'or use .Display
End With
Set OutMail = Nothing
Set OutApp = Nothing
End Sub

At the line "Set OutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application") I get an error message as follows:

Runtime Error '429'

Active X Component can't create object.

I am using Outlook Express for E-mail

Can anybody help me? Thanks so much, Frank

Repeat Last Command
Pressing F4 adds dollar signs when editing a formula. When not editing, F4 repeats last command.

It won't work with Outlook Express, only Outlook. OE doesn't support VBA.
