    Sending attached file (2003)

    I can add a mailto hyperlink to a worksheet, but is it also possible to tell Excel to include the current file as an attachment to the e-mail? Note, I need to avoid the use of Macros because the people returning the workbook will have the security level set to High. Thanks, Andy.

    If you decide that macros can be used you can try Ron DeBruin's Example Code for sending mail from Excel

    But I have no idea how to "tell Excel" to do anything without using macros unless you just have a page of instructions that you want the users to manually complete.

    Thanks. By "telling Excel" I was hoping that it was possible to amend the URL to include the file as an attachment, or that perhaps this could be done using the HYPERLINK function?

    As far as I am aware, it is not possible to specify an attachment in a mailto: hyperlink. So if you don't want to use code, it's probably best to put an instruction in your workbook that tells the user to select File | Send To | Mail Recipient (as Attachment)...
