How can I use Outlook to send email to multiple recipients in Excel VBA


I am trying to set up several buttons on an Excel form to email different groups of people. I made several ranges of cells on a separate worksheet to list the separate email addresses. For example, I want "Button A" to open Outlook and put the list of email addresses from "Worksheet B: Cells D3-D6". Then all that has to be done is hit "Send" in Outlook.

Here is my VBA code so far, but I can't get it to work. Can someone tell me what I'm missing or doing wrong, please?

VB:

Sub Mail_workbook_Outlook_1() 
     'Working in 2000-2010
     'This example send the last saved version of the Activeworkbook
    Dim OutApp As Object 
    Dim OutMail As Object 

    EmailTo = Worksheets("Selections").Range("D3:D6") 

    Set OutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application") 
    Set OutMail = OutApp.CreateItem(0) 

    On Error Resume Next 
    With OutMail 
        .To = EmailTo 
        .CC = "[email protected];[email protected]" 
        .BCC = "" 
        .Subject = "RMA #" & Worksheets("RMA").Range("E1") 
        .Body = "Attached to this email is RMA #" & Worksheets("RMA").Range("E1") & ". Please follow the instructions for your department included in this form." 
        .Attachments.Add ActiveWorkbook.FullName 
         'You can add other files also like this
         '.Attachments.Add ("C:\test.txt")

        .Display 
    End With 
    On Error Goto 0 

    Set OutMail = Nothing 
    Set OutApp = Nothing 
End Sub 

Answers:


You have to loop through every cell in the range "D3:D6" and construct your To string. Simply assigning it to a variant will not solve the purpose. EmailTo becomes an array if you assign the range directly to it. You can do this as well but then you will have to loop through the array to create your To string

Is this what you are trying? (TRIED AND TESTED)
