    Hyperlink in Excel to send it as attachment (Excel 2003)

    Hi,

    At the outset i think it is not possible, but checking with the experts if it is possible.

    I have an application form in excel that employees need to fill and send to me as an email attachment. I wanted to check if we can have the email ID as a hyperlink in the excel sheet and on clicking the same the file is saved as an attachment and sent to the mentioned email Id.

    Thanks
    Baiju

    No, but you could place a command button on the sheet that runs the following code:

    ActiveWorkbook.SendMail Recipients:="myaddress@mycompany.com", Subject:="Application Form"

    This will only work if the user has enabled macros.

    You can specify multiple recipients as an array of strings, e.g.

    ActiveWorkbook.SendMail Array("he@company1.com", "she@company2.com"), "Application Form"

    Hi Baiju

    As usual Hans is spot on but for some other options Ron de Bruin, also from the Netherlands, is quite an email guru, some of this might be worth a read for you http://www.rondebruin.nl/sendmail.htm
