About This Course
This Course shows you, very quickly, how to use VBA programming to automate the distribution of Excel files by sending them as email attachments. By running one macro, you will update five reports in Excel, including a Pivot Table, then save and email the Excel file to as many email addresses as you have in your list. And all it takes is a few seconds!
This Course Uses Visual Basic, but in a way that makes it easy for anyone, even those who have NEVER done any programming! This is a great way to quickly see what the benefits of using VBA are without working your way through a huge course!
The short programs we create in this course show you, step by step, how to update a link from Access to Excel using VBA, then save the Excel file and email it as an attachment by using Outlook, ALL under VBA control – all you do is enter the report dates you want and what you want to name the emailed Excel file!
Think of how much time this will save you! Any reports you do on a regular basis can be setup with this method and you can save many hours every month!
Once you setup your data links and your email list, the process of distributing Excel reports by email only takes a few seconds and each email is personalized and sent to one email at a time.
And remember – you don’t have to know anything more than the bare basics of Access and Excel to learn how to instantly send data from Access to Excel, then email the files using Outlook.
This Microsoft Access tutorial could greatly increase your productivity and help you develop skills that are in very high demand in the workplace.
