    Sending Outlook Attachments with VBA

    I am using the code below to select a recipient and attach the corresponding attachment. I am getting an error saying that the oject does not allow this and the code seems to stop at the line directly following. What do I need to change?

    Hi,

    Untested but probably because you've Dimmed 'attacher' as a Workbook object. The .Add instruction is expecting to see a string reference which should be the complete drive\path\folder\filename.

    That may in fact be your existing attstr variable but I can't tell whether this includes the full drive\path\folder string.

    HTH

    I doubt you can attach an open workbook using this method (sending open files generally warrants SendMail which is limited in terms of other functionality like body etc...)

    edit: probably wrong though...

    Richard was completely right. I changed the .Add portion to the string and removed the open workbook section. Works like a charm!

    Thank you
