    Automatic Outlook Email Based on Date in range of Cells HELP!!!!

    Hi all,

    This is my first post on the forum.

    I have been trying to put this together for sometime by trying to alter bits of code I have picked up from different forums but to due to my lack of knowledge in coding I haven't been successful, hopefully someone will be able to help.

    Basically I have a range of expiry dates in Column E. I am trying to get outlook to automatically send an email once the dates in row E enter the current month, with the body of the email being something like "Reminder: (equipment name in column A) is due to expire on (date in row E).

    So for instance if the date in E5 was 25-03-16 and the equipment in A5 was 500kg Chain Hoist. The email would read "Reminder 500kg Chain Hoist is due to expire on 25-03-16 please check equipment register for further information.

    I have attached the spreadsheet.

    Hope someone can help. This has been frustrating me for sometime. To the point where I am trying to learn code whilst juggling 3 kids under 3!!!!!!

    Hi, Try this...

    Note: The toWhom = "" is where you put in who you want the email to go to
    Note: I have just brought it up to display the email, to send the email you will need to replace .Display with .Send

    Hello benharley84,

    Welcome to the Forum!

    Here is a fully automated version. It will automatically send the reminders whenever a cell in column "E" is changed or the worksheet is activated. Once sent, a date stamp is entered in column "H". This not only marks when the reminder was sent but also prevents multiple reminders from being sent.

    Two new columns have been added to the worksheet: columns "H" and "I". The former column holds the reminder date stamp. The latter column holds the email recipient's address. Reminders are sent only when the date is in the current month, no reminder has been sent, and an email address is in column "I".

    does the code vary if the versions are different?

    Helo benharley84,

    l am sorry for the late response. When it rains, it pours - especially here in California.

    The problem with the original code was a missing period. Here is the corrected code and workbok.
