How to include charts in CDO email Body

I have been playing around with Ron de Bruin's code for the RangetoHTML function and I need to see if I can modify this solution to allow the additions of embedded charts and send in the body of a CDO email.

The other end of this is his macro that I have set to select Set rng = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.  What I have is a sheet that has a handful of simple tables and then a couple of embedded charts that all need to go in the body of an email.

Any thoughts how to add some code so that these embedded charts get picked up as part of "rng" and are sent in the email body?
Function RangetoHTML(rng As Range)
' Changed by Ron de Bruin 28-Oct-2006
' Working in Office 2000-2007
    Dim fso As Object
    Dim ts As Object
    Dim TempFile As String
    Dim TempWB As Workbook
 
    TempFile = Environ$("temp") & "/" & Format(Now, "dd-mm-yy h-mm-ss") & ".htm"
 
    'Copy the range and create a new workbook to past the data in
    rng.Copy
    Set TempWB = Workbooks.Add(1)
    With TempWB.Sheets(1)
        .Cells(1).PasteSpecial Paste:=8
        .Cells(1).PasteSpecial xlPasteValues, , False, False
        .Cells(1).PasteSpecial xlPasteFormats, , False, False
        .Cells(1).Select
        Application.CutCopyMode = False
        On Error Resume Next
        .DrawingObjects.Visible = True
        .DrawingObjects.Delete
        On Error GoTo 0
    End With
 
    'Publish the sheet to a htm file
    With TempWB.PublishObjects.Add( _
         SourceType:=xlSourceRange, _
         Filename:=TempFile, _
         Sheet:=TempWB.Sheets(1).Name, _
         Source:=TempWB.Sheets(1).UsedRange.Address, _
         HtmlType:=xlHtmlStatic)
        .Publish (True)
    End With
 
    'Read all data from the htm file into RangetoHTML
    Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set ts = fso.GetFile(TempFile).OpenAsTextStream(1, -2)
    RangetoHTML = ts.readall
    ts.Close
    RangetoHTML = Replace(RangetoHTML, "align=center x:publishsource=", _
                          "align=left x:publishsource=")
 
    'Close TempWB
    TempWB.Close savechanges:=False
 
    'Delete the htm file we used in this function
    Kill TempFile
 
    Set ts = Nothing
    Set fso = Nothing
    Set TempWB = Nothing
End Function

raynman1972,

I really don't know the answer but can you use something like this

Source:=(TempWB.Sheets(1).UsedRange.Address, TempWB.Sheets(1).Shapes.Range(Array("Chart 1", "Chart 2")))
