    HTML email into strings for use in Outlook

    Send Email.xlsm

    I need to set up my code to where it builds the entire html file. Once I have all my html in a string, lets call it strHTML…
    .HTMLBody = strHTML

    Do I need to keep the HTML tags.
    For example,

    The formatting is really throwing me off for excel VBA strings in HTML. Set a reference to "Microsoft HTML object library" in the Developer in VBA.

    This is what is reading in Outlook:
    Dear Random people in company,
    If you would like the code. Email me.Unique IDProduct1Chips2Dip3Hummus4Pepsi5AquafinaThank you,Your Name

    Can someone please help me, so that this table and picture show up in the body of the email?

    Hello rmachbitz,

    If you intend to build an HTML how can you do it without using HTML tags?
    Sincerely,
    Leith Ross

    Remember To Do the Following....

    1. Use code tags. Place [CODE] before the first line of code and [/CODE] after the last line of code.

    You need pretty much all the HTML code you would have for a normal HTML Web Page.

    I tried shortening my code to see what the problem was with the table. And even this code doesn't work.

    Please help with my VBA code to get the table and picture to send in Outlook using HTML!!

    Re: HTML email into strings for use in Outlook

    Hello rmachbit,

    I found a macro I wrote by 2008 to convert a Range into HTML email it using Outlook. I tested it out to be sure it would work with 2010 - no problem. This will render the range as it is on the worksheet in HTML format. To view it in color, use Outlook. Other email client may not render the colors correctly or at all.

    Lightbulb Re: HTML email into strings for use in Outlook

    Dear Leith Ross,
    I put the code you posted into excel. Maybe it's my Outlook that's not reading the colors. What code should I change to get it to work in Outlook 2010?

    This part of the code, I've never seen before. Can you explain this??

    PracticeEmail.xlsm

    Thank you!

    Re: HTML email into strings for use in Outlook

    With the string being in base64, it seems outlook won’t decode it properly…
    How would I convert a .jpg to MHT instead of HTML?

    Re: HTML email into strings for use in Outlook

    Yes, you posted code that is .Attachments.Add which adds the attachment to the file, not the body of Outlook.
    I would like the .HTMLBody portion of the image to work.

    Re: HTML email into strings for use in Outlook

    That's what I posted, not what John55 posted.

    His method doesn't involve attaching the file.

    If you want to try the method I suggested remove the path from src.

    Re: HTML email into strings for use in Outlook

    Why is there a space after cid:?

    Also, try sending the message.

    I still don't see the image in the body of Outlook. Have you seen the excel file I've been working on?? It's called "PracticeEmail.xlsm" I've attached it in this forum.

    Re: HTML email into strings for use in Outlook

    Did you try actually sending the email?

    I just attached your picture and when I emailed it to my own google account I could see the image in the body.

    By the way, if this is a logo perhaps you should look into using a signature and adding it there.

    I know how to add photos to my signature, that's not the problem. I pressed the button and the .Send was activated to send the email. I don't know if my code is in the wrong spot. I can upload my file again. Could you pinpoint what is wrong in the code? Also, is it something you Referenced in VBA, like a Microsoft library??

    Re: HTML email into strings for use in Outlook

    No specific library.

    The code in your workbook doesn't appear to have anything like this in it, and there's no image being attached.

    Your code exactly matches my code. I don't see any difference.

    Re: HTML email into strings for use in Outlook

    What section of the code did you put that in? Is it Outlook 2010 specific?? Because that's what version of Outlook I have.

    Can you post the exact code you now have?

    Re: HTML email into strings for use in Outlook

    Sorry, but I've already downloaded that file and it does't appear to have any code for adding an image.

    It has this but it does nothing.

    Anyway, I amended the code and came up with this.

    Re: HTML email into strings for use in Outlook

    Actually, I know why the code doesn't work with your image - it's the space in the name.

    If you rename the file to remove the space and adjust the code accordingly it definitely works.

    I thought it was working because gmail, for some reason, displays the image even if it's just an attachment.

    I'm sure there's a way to deal with the space but I haven't found anything so far.

    It definitely works now! I just needed a space and I needed to make the name with underscores in it.

    Re: HTML email into strings for use in Outlook

    You didn't need any extra spaces, you just needed to get rid of the space(s) in the filename.

    Re: HTML email into strings for use in Outlook

    This code works great except for the fact that iPhone users cannot see these images. It just displays the image name. Does anyone know how to resolve this? I've tried both PNG and JPG.
