Have the following script but I'm struggling to get the file  Pcomb Error Report.
The file, for example, is saved as  Pcomb Error Report DDMMYY and is emailed the following morning.

Dim myDateString, myStart, myMessage, myDatestring2, myattachment

myDateString = DateAdd("d", -1, Date)

strDatestring1 = Replace(mydatestring,"/","")
strdatestring2 = Mid(strDatestring1,1,4)
strdatestring3 = Mid(strDatestring1,7)

strDayofMonth1 = Datepart("d",mydatestring)
strMonth1 = Datepart("m",mydatestring)
strYear1 = Datepart("yyyy",mydatestring)

strDayOfMonth = right("0" & day(date()),2) - 1
strMonth = right("0" & month(date()),2)
strYear = right (year(date()),2)


mydatestring2 = strDayOfMonth & strMonth & strYear

myattachment = "N:\Users\Production\ops\Ops Documents\PCOMB Errors\TCQ Pcomb Error Report " & strdatestring2 & strdatestring3 &".doc"
myMessage = "PCOMB Timings & Error Report " & myDateString 
Set outlookApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")

olMailItem = 0
Set newMessage = outlookApp.CreateItem(olMailItem)

newMessage.To = "test@hotmail.com"
newMessage.Subject = myMessage
newMessage.Attachments.Add "N:\Users\Production\ops\Ops Documents\Spreadsheets and templates\PCOMB_Timings.xls"
newMessage.Attachments.Add "N:\Users\Production\ops\Ops Documents\PCOMB Errors\Pcomb Error Report " & strdatestring2 & strdatestring3 &".doc"
newMessage.Subject = myMessage

newMessage.Display

Give this a try.

Dim datYesterday, strDDMMYY, myStart, myMessage, myattachment

datYesterday = DateAdd("d", -1, Now())
strDDMMYY = Right("0" & Day(datYesterday), 2) & Right("0" & Month(datYesterday), 2) & Right(Year(datYesterday), 2)

myattachment = "N:\Users\Production\ops\Ops Documents\PCOMB Errors\TCQ Pcomb Error Report " & strDDMMYY &".doc"
myMessage = "PCOMB Timings & Error Report " & strDDMMYY

Set outlookApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")

olMailItem = 0
Set newMessage = outlookApp.CreateItem(olMailItem)

newMessage.To = "test@hotmail.com"
newMessage.Subject = myMessage
newMessage.Attachments.Add "N:\Users\Production\ops\Ops Documents\Spreadsheets and templates\PCOMB_Timings.xls"
newMessage.Attachments.Add "N:\Users\Production\ops\Ops Documents\PCOMB Errors\Pcomb Error Report " & strDDMMYY &".doc"
newMessage.Subject = myMessage

newMessage.Display

Much appreciated Bill.
This works perfectly.
Another question. When I launch this script it opens it in outlook with my signature, but i also would like to add to the body the following:

Good Morning,

Please find attached the PCOMB Timings and Error Report for DD/MM/YY. (<- This date would be previous days date like the file attachment)

Can you assist with this as well pretty please?

Best Regards,
Ferhat
