Excel VBA for MAC OS - Email Workbook

If I want to attach an Excel workbook to an email in Outlook that is MAC compatible, do I need to write a routine in Apple Script as described by Ron DeBruin in 2012?
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh859489(v=office.14).aspx

When I use the code below, my MAC users get a run-time error 429: "ActiveX component can't create object". But there are no ActiveX form objects in the file


Sub AttachEmail()
Dim sFileName As String, sEmployeeName As String, sFileDate As String, sSender As String
Dim sFileDateExt As String, sCurrFileName As String, sFilePath As String, sFullPath As String
Dim sLocation As String, sTK_Loc As String
Dim OutApp As Object, OutMail As Object

On Error Resume Next
    Set OutApp = GetObject(, "Outlook.Application")
On Error GoTo 0
If OutApp Is Nothing Then
    Set OutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
End If

Set OutMail = OutApp.CreateItem(0)

With Sheet1
    sEmployeeName = .Range("B2").Value
    sLocation = .Range("C2").Value
    sTK_Loc = .Range("D2").Value
End With
sFileDate = Sheet4.Range("E14").Value
sFileDateExt = Year(sFileDate) & "." & Format(Month(sFileDate), "00") & ".xlsm"
sFileName = sEmployeeName & " - " & sTK_Loc & " Timesheet - " & sFileDateExt
sFilePath = ActiveWorkbook.Path
sFullPath = sFilePath & "/" & sFileName

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
With Sheet4
    If .ProtectContents = True Then
       .Unprotect
    End If
       .Range("O3:P3") = Array("Submitted:", Now())
       .Range("O4:P4") = Array("Sender:", OutApp.session.accounts.Item(1).DisplayName)
       .Protect
End With
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs (sFullPath)
Application.DisplayAlerts = True
Application.ScreenUpdating = True

On Error Resume Next
With OutMail
    .to = "HRTimesheets@yourcompany.com"
    .Subject = sFileName
    .Attachments.Add ActiveWorkbook.FullName
    .Display
    '.Send
End With
On Error GoTo 0

Set OutMail = Nothing
Set OutApp = Nothing
ActiveWorkbook.Close SaveChanges:=True
End Sub

I don't use a mac, but Ron de Bruin has lots of code for emailing using a Mac.

Send mail from Mac

You can add code that detects the Operating System and chooses which email macro to use.
