Copy Conditional Format from Excel to Outlook

I'm using Ron De bruin's excel to email code. I'm having conflicting ideas on how to copy a range of excel to Outlook and keep my conditional formatting. My output comes out fine but I'm not able to copy and paste the conditional format in column M and N of my spreadsheet. I think i have to change the vba code of the temporary Workbook to copy and paste the conditional formatting but not sure if I should change the rng in the RangetoHTML function or the Mail_Selection_Range_Outlook_Body(). I was experimenting with adding:

Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteAllUsingSourceTheme, Operation:=xlNone _
        , SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False
    Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
        :=False, Transpose:=False

But not having much luck.


 
Sub Mail_Selection_Range_Outlook_Body()

    Dim rng As Range
    Dim OutApp As Object
    Dim OutMail As Object

    Set rng = Nothing
    On Error Resume Next
    
    Set rng = Selection.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible)
    
    Set rng = Sheets("RepDetail").Range("A3:P100").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible)
    
    On Error GoTo 0

    If rng Is Nothing Then
        MsgBox "The selection is not a range or the sheet is protected" & _
               vbNewLine & "please correct and try again.", vbOKOnly
        Exit Sub
    End If

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

    Set OutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    Set OutMail = OutApp.createitem(0)

    On Error Resume Next
    With OutMail
        .To = "ron@debruin.nl"
        .cc = ""
        .BCC = ""
        .subject = "Your Open Orders As Of" & " " & Format(Now, "m/d/yyyy")
        .HTMLBody = RangetoHTML(rng)
        .Display
    End With
    On Error GoTo 0

    With Application
        .EnableEvents = True
        .ScreenUpdating = True
    End With

    Set OutMail = Nothing
    Set OutApp = Nothing
End Sub


Function RangetoHTML(rng As Range)

    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"

    
    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

Hi there,

You'll need to convert the conditional formatting to normal formatting.  Take a look at this thread for that...

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Office_Suites/MS_Office/Excel/Q_26888462.html

You would run that code after you set the 'rng' variable in your code above.
