    Excel 2003 using Send To, Mail Recipient quandry

    I am sending a worksheet via email using File>Send To>Mail Recipient and what I send isn't what is received. I have posted this in the Outlook forum too but, I'm not sure if it is an Excel or Outlook issue. Screen prints attached.

    Gasman,

    Are you sending a .xls or .xlsx file?
    What version of Excel is the recipient using to open it?

    RG,

    .xls and they are using Excel 2003. I have sent one to myself and I see the truncated text (hyperlink) too.
    Oh the recipient is seeing it truncated like that in Outlook. The way it is sent, they don't have to open Excel, it isn't as an attachment just a single page.

    Gasman,

    It probablly has something to do with the viewer used to display it inside Outlook. Sorry, but I don't have any experience with that.

    Have you tried opening the sheet in Excel? Perhaps it's only truncated in the viewer, and the spreadsheet is actually unchanged.Outlook viewers, in my experience don't always show a true representation of the document being sent. This is also true with Word. Not sure about 2007 or 2010, since they've come out I have changed jobs, (retired) and have no need to send budgets, and projections to others for review! Try it out, failing that, use "send to mail recipient as attachment" that way you're certain to get the right info!
