Generate e-mail from Excel to Lotus Notes

could an Expeert provide me with VBA code that will generate an e-mail.

In Excel we use a checkbox that will insert the time and the user name. When the checkbox is ticked I would like to generate an e-mail through Lotus Notes.

Please see attached file which I hope is self explanitory.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


pls try

Sub SendEMail()
    Dim cb As CheckBox
    Set cb = ActiveSheet.CheckBoxes(Application.Caller)
    With cb
        With .TopLeftCell
            If cb.Value = msoCTrue Then
                .Offset(0, 1).Value = Now()
                .Offset(0, 2).Value = Environ("username")
                Call SendMail
                .Offset(0, 1).Resize(, 2).ClearContents
