Hi Ambucias,

Thank you for your response.

I am trying to write a VBA code to send auto email reminders from an excel sheet however I am getting some error. Below is the code:

Sub SendEmail()

Dim olapp As Outlook.Application
Set olapp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Dim olmail As Outlook.MailItem
Set olmail = olapp.CreateItem(olMailItem)
Dim maildest As String
Dim i As Integer
For i = 2 To 5
maildest = ""
maildest = Cells(i, 5).Value
olmail.To = maildest
olmail.Subject = "is it running yet?"
olmail.Body = "A gentle reminder that XXX tasks are still pending"
olmail.Send

Next i

Range("A8").Select
Set olmail = Nothing
Set olapp = Nothing
End Sub


Could you kindly guide as to what is wrong with the code? The loop never functions.

Thank you and look forward to your help

Best,
Dominic

Hi x.dominicraj,

Try changing the following:
Dim olapp As Outlook.Application
into:
Dim olapp As Object

Dim olmail As Outlook.MailItem
into:
Dim olmail As Object

Set olmail = olapp.CreateItem(olMailItem)
into:
Set olmail = olapp.CreateItem(0)

When it is still not working try adding the line:
On Error GoTo 0
after the 'Next i' line.

Hope that helps.

Best regards,
Trowa

Hi x.dominicraj,

Ok, move the following code line:
Set olmail = olapp.CreateItem(0)

and place it below:
For i = 2 To 5

That line needs to be within the loop.

Trowa

Hi TrowaD,

Thank you for your response.

The code now looks like this:

Sub SendEmail()

Dim olapp As Object
Set olapp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Dim olmail As Object

Dim maildest As String
Dim i As Integer
For i = 2 To 5
Set olmail = olapp.CreateItem(0)
maildest = ""
maildest = Cells(i, 5).Value
olmail.To = maildest
olmail.Subject = "is it running yet?"
olmail.Body = "A gentle reminder that XXX tasks are still pending"
olmail.Send

Next i
On Error GoTo 0

Range("A8").Select
Set olmail = Nothing
Set olapp = Nothing
End Sub


Still shows the same error as mentioned above by me :

When I click the debug option it highlights the line : "olmail.To = maildest"

Any suggestions on this error?

Thanks.

Best,
Dominic

Hi x.dominicraj,

Are you sure the mail addresses in range E2:E5 are correct and still existing? Maybe try using the same address as in E2.

Also try to place
Set olmail = Nothing
at the end of the loop, so before 'Next i'

Besides that I'm out of suggestions.

At a last effort to help you out, here is a site with a lot of code examples for Outlook:

Do keep us posted on your findings.

Good luck and best regards,

Hi Trowa,

Set olmail = Nothing did the trick. The mail is going to all the contacts in the column.

Thank you so much for your help!
