Hi Guys, the 3rd Macro on this Excel spreadsheet saves the worksheet with the title "Provider Analysis" and then sends it out via Outlook. How can I add Today's date stamp to the VB code so at the end, the spreadsheet name is "Provider Analysis 28 October 2016"? I send it out every day so the date stamp must change every day too.

Your code uses saveas in at least three procedures. You might want to change them all.

Sub Macro3()
'
' Macro3 Macro
'

'

    Sheets(Array("Synth", "LiqProv", "LiqProvDetail", "LiqProvUSD", "LiqProvAED", _
                 "LiqProvEUR")).Copy
    ChDir "Y:\Cash & Collateral\LiquidityProvider"
    ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _
                          "Y:\Cash & Collateral\LiquidityProvider\LiqProvider" & Format(Date, "dd mmmm yyyy") & ".xlsx", FileFormat:= _
                          xlOpenXMLWorkbook, CreateBackup:=False
    Application.Dialogs(xlDialogSendMail).Show
End Sub

Open in new window



Also, glancing through the rest of your code you seem to have a lot of redundant code created by the Macro Recorder which should be tidied up, e.g. unnecessary selecting, lines like  ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=6 can all be deleted.
