I need to copy Sheet1 in Mail.xlsm (attached) to another workbook OtherWorkbook.xlsm. My copy procedure is this - with both workbooks open, I go into Developer/Visual Basic and drag the module/macro from Mail.xlsm to OtherWorkbook.xlsm. I then copy Sheet1 from Mail.xlsm to OtherWorkbook.xlsm.

When I click the button/macro in Sheet1 of OtherWorkbook.xlsm the result is - Compile error: User-defined type not defined. Also, underlying code is displayed with Public Sub CreateAnEmail() highlighted in yellow and the lineDim objOutlook As Outlook.Application highlighted in blue.
Mail.xlsm

References to additional libraries are not inserted automatically.
After copy you should open (in VBA editor) Tools-References from menu and add reference to proper Outlook library (in my case Microsoft Outlook 14.0):
