I need vba in excel to email worksheet as pdf attachment

I have code (Pasted further below) which sends out an email with a .pdf attachment of the active worksheet.
However, I need it to send an email with a page range of two different worksheets (shown below).
I'm looking to merge the two functions to email a .pdf of the correct pages:

code that prints the correct page range:
Worksheets("BS").PrintOut From:=1, To:=4
Worksheets("PL").PrintOut From:=24, To:=48

'code that send active worksheet as pdf:
Sub AttachActiveSheetPDF()
  Dim IsCreated As Boolean
  Dim i As Long
  Dim PdfFile As String, Title As String
  Dim OutlApp As Object
 
  ' Not sure for what the Title is
  Title = Range("A1")
 
  ' Define PDF filename
  PdfFile = ActiveWorkbook.FullName
  i = InStrRev(PdfFile, ".")
  If i > 1 Then PdfFile = Left(PdfFile, i - 1)
  PdfFile = PdfFile & "_" & ActiveSheet.Name & ".pdf"
 
  ' Export activesheet as PDF
  With ActiveSheet
    .ExportAsFixedFormat Type:=xlTypePDF, Filename:=PdfFile, Quality:=xlQualityStandard, IncludeDocProperties:=True, IgnorePrintAreas:=False, OpenAfterPublish:=False
  End With
 
  ' Use already open Outlook if possible
  On Error Resume Next
  Set OutlApp = GetObject(, "Outlook.Application")
  If Err Then
    Set OutlApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    IsCreated = True
  End If
  OutlApp.Visible = True
  On Error GoTo 0
 
  ' Prepare e-mail with PDF attachment
  With OutlApp.CreateItem(0)
   
    ' Prepare e-mail
    .Subject = Title
    .To = "Drelinger@SchmidtEquipment.com" ' <-- Put email of the recipient here
    .CC = "..." ' <-- Put email of 'copy to' recipient here
    .Body = "Hi," & vbLf & vbLf _
          & "The report is attached in PDF format." & vbLf & vbLf _
          & "Regards," & vbLf _
          & Application.UserName & vbLf & vbLf
    .Attachments.Add PdfFile
   
    ' Try to send
    On Error Resume Next
    .Send
    Application.Visible = True
    If Err Then
      MsgBox "E-mail was not sent", vbExclamation
    Else
      MsgBox "E-mail successfully sent", vbInformation
    End If
    On Error GoTo 0
   
  End With
 
  ' Delete PDF file
  Kill PdfFile
 
  ' Quit Outlook if it was created by this code
  If IsCreated Then OutlApp.Quit
 
  ' Release the memory of object variable
  Set OutlApp = Nothing
 
End Sub

The code below should create two pdf files (PdfFileBS & PdfFilePL) and add them to the email message.
I couldn't fully test the code, so let me know if you run into any issues.

PS. One comment says "Not sure for what the Title is"; it's used as the title of the email message ;)

Do you know the cell ranges of pages 1 to 4 of worksheet BS and of pages 24 to 48 of worksheet PL, and are they fixed?

The best source for vba code to email from Excel is Ron de Bruin. His site contains examples for most needs

drelingerAuthor Commented:
the cell ranges will vary based on user selections.  Columns are hidden / displayed based on financial statement month's selected. So, if the user selects January, the range is A0:N1321. But it is different for each month selected.

Ok, thank you.

One more question. Does it need to be one pdf file containing both the BS and PL? Or is a solution with two separate pdf files for BS and PL as attachments to the same email also possible?

Single pdf would be better, but two separate pdf would also work.
