It is not hard to send email from excel but to have it automated system you are talking about would need the excel to be placed into task scheduler and on open to check for missing data and send the required emails.

To code this we would need a lot more information eg how do determine data is missing, data locatiosn, key dates etc and it would be best if you broke the question down into parts.
