Macro to email via MAC (Code for Outlook working)



Hi All,

I have had great help on this site getting code working to send contents ofExcel via Outlook. Now I have had a request to make this work via MAC too< i don't have a MAC and know nothing about them. :-(
(Please note I have no experience in code, everything I have picked up fromhelp on this site and generally it is a copy and paste exercise rather than an understanding)

To give as much info as possible.

At the moment I have a excel sheet with 5 buttons, you click the button anda macro is run to populate the required fields to be completed for that button. There is then a EMAIL button which is clicked to copy and paste the contents from the Excel spreadsheet into Excel, everything is working greatfor this for Outlook (all thanks to help from this site and a couple of other websites I have been pointed to)

Now I need to get this working for MAC. I have been pointed to a site but I really can't work things out. What I need to know is.

A. How do I change the code below to work for MAC.
B. How will I identify if a MAC or Outlook user? Would I need two buttons ;CLICK HERE TO EMAIL ON MACS' AND 'CLICK HERE TO EMAIL ON OUTLOOK' or is there something more clever than this.

Any help really appreciated.

Here is the full code used at the moment to email the contents. (The code behind the click here to email button)

Sub Mail_Selection_Range_Outlook_Body()

Kill TempFile

Set TempWB = Nothing
End Function


I'm working on the same problem...any progress?

Yes, Ron DeBruin is the master, but it appears he has nothing new on this.
