    Unanswered: email only a range in excel in lotus notes

    Dear Techies,

    I'm using a macro that sends the complete excel file via the lotus notes mailbox. However, I want only a particular range(for e.g. C130) alone to be sent in the mail.

    When I do this myself, I copy the range and paste it as "Bitmap" (by paste special option) in the new mail memo to preserve the formatting of the range.

    can someone help me with the code?

    Here is the code that I use:

    Sub SendNotesMail()
    Dim Subject As String
    Dim Attachment As String
    Dim Recipient As String
    Dim BodyText As String
    Dim SaveIt As Boolean
    'Set up the objects required for Automation into lotus notes
    Dim Maildb As Object 'The mail database
    Dim UserName As String 'The current users notes name
    Dim MailDbName As String 'THe current users notes mail database name
    Dim MailDoc As Object 'The mail document itself
    Dim AttachME As Object 'The attachment richtextfile object
    Dim Session As Object 'The notes session
    Dim EmbedObj As Object 'The embedded object (Attachment)
    'Start a session to notes
    Set Session = CreateObject("Notes.NotesSession")
    'Next line only works with 5.x and above. Replace password with your password
    'Get the sessions username and then calculate the mail file name
    'You may or may not need this as for MailDBname with some systems you
    'can pass an empty string or using above password you can use other mailboxes.
    UserName = Session.UserName
    MailDbName = Left$(UserName, 1) & Right$(UserName, (Len(UserName) - InStr(1, UserName, " "))) & ".nsf"
    'Open the mail database in notes
    Set Maildb = Session.GETDATABASE("", MailDbName)
    If Maildb.IsOpen = True Then
    'Already open for mail
    End If
    'Set up the new mail document
    Set MailDoc = Maildb.CREATEDOCUMENT
    MailDoc.Form = "Memo"
    MailDoc.sendto = ""
    MailDoc.Subject = "Test mail"
    MailDoc.Body = "Body"
    MailDoc.SAVEMESSAGEONSEND = True 'Gets the mail to appear in the sent items folder
    'Set up the embedded object and attachment and attach it
    If Attachment <> "" Then
    Set AttachME = MailDoc.CREATERICHTEXTITEM("Attachment")
    Set EmbedObj = AttachME.EMBEDOBJECT(1454, "", "", "")
    End If
    'Send the document
    MailDoc.PostedDate = Now()
    MailDoc.SEND 0, Recipient
    'Clean Up
    Set Maildb = Nothing
    Set MailDoc = Nothing
    Set AttachME = Nothing
    Set Session = Nothing
    Set EmbedObj = Nothing
    End Sub

    If you do a search for this in google you will get countless hits.

    Here's one solution posted at Ozgrid:
    email a range in Lotus Notes - Excel Help & Excel Macro Help

    I can't test it for you because I don't have lotus notes.

    Hope that helps...

    Hi Collin,

    Many thanks for your response.

    I did tried the link you have given. I have modified some fields to suit my system, but the body of the mail is sent blank.

    I will post a thread directly in ozgrid and try to sort this out.
