Hello, I am trying to automate the sending of attachments with email using VBA in Microsoft Excel.

I have it working except for the attachment piece, does anyone know how to set it up so I can attach for example "C:\Temp\Text.txt"?  I've attached the code that works without the attachment piece below.

Sub Send_Email()

    Dim objOL As New Outlook.Application
    Dim objMail As MailItem

    Set objOL = New Outlook.Application
    Set objMail = objOL.CreateItem(olMailItem)
       
    With objMail
        .To = "first.last@yahoo.com"
        .CC = ""
        .Subject = "test email"
        .Body = "test line 1" & Chr(10) & Chr(10) _
                & "test line 2" & Chr(10) & Chr(10)
        .Attachments = ("c:\temp\text.txt")
        .Display
    End With
   
    Set objMail = Nothing
    Set objOL = Nothing

End Sub

Thanks

Thanks Kevin, it was Attachments.Add(file), but that was the help I needed!

I'm awarding points, have a good one.
