Mail a Sheet using VBA in Microsoft Excel

In this article, we will create a macro to send a sheet as attachment in an email.

Before running the macro, we need to specify an email id and subject of the email.


In this example, we want to send “DataSheet” as an attachment in the email.


Logic explanation

We have created “MailSheet” macro, which takes email id and subject of the email from text boxes. It creates a new copy of “DataSheet”, saves it and sends it as an attachment.

Code explanation


The above code is used to create a copy of “DataSheet” in a new workbook.

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs "Part of " & ThisWorkbook.Name _

& " " & StrDate & ".xls"

The above code is used to save the new workbook.

ActiveWorkbook.SendMail EmailID, MailSubject

The above code is used to send the active workbook as an attachment to the specified email id, with the given subject.

ActiveWorkbook.Close False

The above code is used to close the active workbook without saving it.


Please follow below for the code

Sub MailSheet()

'Declaring variables
Dim StrDate, EmailID, MailSubject As String

'Getting value for Email ID and subject from textboxes
EmailID = Sheet1.TextBox1.Value
MailSubject = Sheet1.TextBox2.Value

'Copying "DataSheet" to new workbook

'Formatting date and time to particular format
StrDate = Format(Date, "dd-mm-yy") & " " & Format(Time, "h-mm")

'Saving active workbook with new name
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs "Part of " & ThisWorkbook.Name _
                    & " " & StrDate & ".xls"
'Sending mail
ActiveWorkbook.SendMail EmailID, MailSubject

'Close the active workbook
ActiveWorkbook.Close False

End Sub
