Simple Excel expiry dates to email notifier

HI there,
First time user of Experts Exchange.

I am looking for the simplist way to take my expiry dates for certifictaions, ie. forklift license, fall protection certifrications, first aid certifications, and get an email sent to me before these dates expire.
I am ok with excel, but VBA, (Please be gentle on me) I have no clue. Is there a way to do this Inside of Outlook itself, or do we have to do this in excel and run VB to email.?

Thanks so much.

Hello Chris,
Take a look at the attached workbook.  You'll need to have outlook running in the background.  Click the button and see what happens.  This should provide a good starting point.

Also, notice I normalized the data.  This makes is much easier to loop through and pick out the dates which are about to expire.  Please consider re-configuring your data to look like this.

Hi Kyle,
I noticed that i can not add any more lines.
Do I need to change the rng value?

And this runs on the whole workbook, if I wanted to run one report for each sheet would it be hard to do that?>?
Then I could seperate out the categories so I  Could send seperate email to each department leader.

Does that make sense?
Thanks so much.
