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
Sub Mail_ActiveSheet()
' Works in Excel 97 through Excel 2007.
Dim FileExtStr As String
Dim FileFormatNum As Long
Dim Sourcewb As Workbook
Dim Destwb As Workbook
Dim TempFilePath As String
Dim TempFileName As String
 
With Application
  .ScreenUpdating = False
  .EnableEvents = False
End With
 
Set Sourcewb = ActiveWorkbook
' Using ActiveSheet.Copy creates a new workbook with
' the sheet and the file format is the same as the
' original workbook.
' Copy the worksheet to a new workbook.
ActiveSheet.Copy
Set Destwb = ActiveWorkbook
 
' Determine the Excel version and file extension/format.
With Destwb
  If Val(Application.Version) < 12 Then
     ' You are using Excel 97-2003.
     FileExtStr = ".xls": FileFormatNum = -4143
  Else
     ' You are using Excel 2007.
     ' When you use ActiveSheet.Copy to create a workbook,
     ' you are prompted with a security dialog. If you click No
     ' in the dialog, then the name of Sourcewb is the same
     ' as Destwb and you exit the subroutine. You only see this
     ' dialog when you attempt to copy a worksheet from an .xlsm file with macros disabled.
     If Sourcewb.Name = .Name Then
        With Application
           .ScreenUpdating = True
           .EnableEvents = True
        End With
        MsgBox "Your answer is No in the security dialog."
        Exit Sub
     Else
        Select Case Sourcewb.FileFormat
           ' Code 51 represents the enumeration for a macro-free
           ' Excel 2007 Workbook (.xlsx).
           Case 51: FileExtStr = ".xlsx": FileFormatNum = 51
           ' Code 52 represents the enumeration for a
           ' macro-enabled Excel 2007 Workbook (.xlsm).

              If .HasVBProject Then
                 FileExtStr = ".xlsm": FileFormatNum = 52
              Else
                 FileExtStr = ".xlsx": FileFormatNum = 51
              End If
           ' Code 56 represents the enumeration for a
           ' a legacy Excel 97-2003 Workbook (.xls).

           ' Code 50 represents the enumeration for a
           ' binary Excel 2007 Workbook (.xlsb).
            Case Else: FileExtStr = ".xlsb": FileFormatNum = 50
        End Select
     End If
  End If
End With
 
' Change all cells in the worksheet to values, if desired.
''   With Destwb.Sheets(1).UsedRange
''      .Cells.Copy
''      .Cells.PasteSpecial xlPasteValues
''      .Cells(1).Select
''   End With
''Application.CutCopyMode = False
 
'Save the new workbook and then mail it.
  TempFilePath = Environ$("temp") & "\"
  TempFileName = ActiveSheet.Name
 
With Destwb
  .SaveAs TempFilePath & TempFileName, FileFormat:=FileFormatNum
     On Error Resume Next

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.
