Hi Experts,

I would like a script/marco I can use to email the current active worksheet from excel 2010 via Outlook 2010.

I have the attached script that I used regulally for many years but I dont think it is compatible with 2010.  The attachment should be the name of the worksheet.

can you help bring my script into the future?

Thank you

Oh, it always fails for me at this line:

 TempFilePath = Environ$("temp") & "\"

You are most likely missing a VBA Reference Library on your installation of Excel.  See this link on Chip Pearson site for an explanation:  Missing References and also a similar discussion at this link: Compile/Reference Errors

Wisemat  -  Here is some additional reading where I had a similar problem with VBA not properly compiling the code and the suggestion in this EE Question solved it.  Compile Time Error on Common VBA Function.   Hopefully one of two suggestions will help solve your existing issue.

Thanks for the library info. This was the source of the problem and not the script. It just took a while for me to work it out.
