Hi there ....
i recently found this thread
"
HTML:
https://www.mrexcel.com/forum/general-excel-discussion-other-questions/710212-vba-code-convert-excel-pdf-email-attachment.html
"
that does more or less what i want in my VBA but implementing it into my Current VBA is no easy feat,
would anyone be so kind as to help me piece it together... i would like the Macro to in addition send the saved pdf to a specific Recipient / s with a selected outlook account and specific signature in my case called "Nexus"

Here is my current Macro, it works great at saving the PDF and sends a mail, but no attachment and no specific account or sig... please help me...
Code:
Option Explicit

    "SHGetPathFromIDListA" (ByVal pidl As Long, ByVal pszPath As String) As Long

Dim r As Long, Path$
Dim IDL As ITEMIDLIST


        'Get the special folder
        r = SHGetSpecialFolderLocation(100, CSIDL, IDL)
        If r = 0 Then


        'Create a buffer
        Path$ = Space$(512)


'Get the path from the IDList
r = SHGetPathFromIDList(ByVal IDL.mkid.cb, ByVal Path$)


        'Remove the unnecessary chr$(0)'s
        GetSpecialfolder = Left$(Path, InStr(Path, Chr$(0)) - 1)


        Exit Function


    End If


GetSpecialfolder = ""


End Function

Hi Werner Slabbert,

Could you go into a little more detail of what you would like to do in regards to:
1.)Creating a PDF.
a.)Is the PDF to be created in the current workbook?
b.)Are there multiple worksheets to be created as PDF files?

2.)Saving the PDF to a target location.
a.)If the folder you are saving the files to located on your computer or on a server within your company?

I am a bit confused by the first macro within your code and what you need it to do exactly.
Is this code needed because you have a special set up in regards to your system or company server?

3.)Emailing out the created PDF file(s)
a.)Do you want to attached multiple files within a single email based on a parameter/criteria?

Hi Eric H

firstly, thank you so very much for taking a look at my post.
the macro i posted auto saves a single sheet pdf in a folder on my desktop called "Famous_Brands" and then if the sub does not exist creates a sub folder from the specified cell in the sheet. it also prints said sheet to my default printer .

now what i would just actually like to add in there is a bit that takes the already created and saved PDF and attaches it to an email to a specific recipient /s from a specific email account with a signature called "Nexus" ( already created in outlook)

as for the confused bit in your post, in all honesty i would not actually be able to tell you if i need all that, but i am too **** scared to fiddle with it... like i said the macro should do the following:
  1. create PDF from single worksheet
  2. save said pdf in a sub folder inside the designated folder Famous_Brands with sub folder name in designated cell.
  3. print said worksheet straight to my default printer
  4. save a copy of the original workbook in two locations: Desktop & Documents
  5. ( now this is where my actual struggle starts) attach a copy of saved PDF to an email
  6. enter a recipient
  7. enter a signature called "Nexus"
  8. and send this mail from a designated account called "service*****@******.co.za"
i do hope this clarifies my request somewhat..

Regards
Werner

Hi Werner,

I am very sorry for the delay in my response I have had several unexpected issues come up.

After building out the code module to accomplish your task I realized it might be a bit much to post here but I will post each macro and function I have created for your task.
That being said I have a dropbox folder link I can post so you might download the whole workbook code included.

I have created a Excel workbook with a VBA module containing macros that I believe will help you with accomplish the goal of:
1.)Allow a user to choose what email account to send a email from out of a selection all available email accounts present in outlook.
2.)Allow the user to choose which signature they would like to use from all signatures present in outlooks signatures folder.
3.)Attach a file chosen by the user for any folder on your computer.
a.)From ether a file path and file name string of text or
b.)From a file chosen using the file dialog picker window.

I have also included a comedic sample email message as part of the code to demonstrate what the end product will look like.

Hi Eric

not to worry about a late response you know what they say, beggars and choosers .... thank you so very very much for all the time and effort you have put into this, i owe you a considerable debt .
if you would not mind giving me the link for the complete workbook please . that would simplify it alot.

again i do not know how to thank you for the help. you are a MAMBA.


Hi Werner,

I am very sorry for the delay in my response I have had several unexpected issues come up.

After building out the code module to accomplish your task I realized it might be a bit much to post here but I will post each macro and function I have created for your task.
That being said I have a dropbox folder link I can post so you might download the whole workbook code included.

I have created a Excel workbook with a VBA module containing macros that I believe will help you with accomplish the goal of:
1.)Allow a user to choose what email account to send a email from out of a selection all available email accounts present in outlook.
2.)Allow the user to choose which signature they would like to use from all signatures present in outlooks signatures folder.
3.)Attach a file chosen by the user for any folder on your computer.
a.)From ether a file path and file name string of text or
b.)From a file chosen using the file dialog picker window.

I have also included a comedic sample email message as part of the code to demonstrate what the end product will look like.

I have downloaded your project and I will look it over asap.
Please let me if the Excel workbook I created is working for your task. I would be happy to adapt it to better suit your needs.
