Are you planning to send the SMS? Are you planning to use MOSA?

Try this code


 Dim myrange As Range
    Dim myApp As Object
    Dim myMail As Object

    Set myrange = Nothing

     '...    for visible cells selected
    Set myrange = Selection.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible)

   
    If myrange Is Nothing Then
        MsgBox "select a range" ", vbOKOnly
        Exit Sub
    End If

    With Application
        .EnableEvents = False
        .ScreenUpdating = False
    End With

    Set myApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    Set myMail = OutApp.CreateItem(0)



 With myMail
        .To = "someone@hotmail.coml"
        .CC = ""
        .BCC = ""
        .Subject = "A Subject here"
' in the follwing you can also add some simple text
        .HTMLBody = RangetoHTML(myrange )
        .Send  
    End With

1st: Options is undefined
2nd: From what i've read, SendMailAttach seams to be linked to Word Interop... (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.office.interop.word.options.sendmailattach(office.11).aspx)

Try to dump that line and see if it does what you want.

Thanks - just fixed typo
You had Set myMail = OutApp.CreateItem(0)
Should be Set myMail = myApp.CreateItem(0)
Code below works fine.
Regards
Brian
Sub SendTextMessage()
    Dim myApp As Object
    Dim myMail As Object
    Set myApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    Set myMail = myApp.CreateItem(0)
    With myMail
        .To = [MessageAddress]
        .CC = ""
        .BCC = ""
        .Subject = [MessageSubject]
        .HTMLBody = [MessageText]
        .Send
    End With
End Sub
