I need help on the following desperately
I need to write a macro to send out 2 types of email via excel 2000 for those (DEPENDING ON their Action_Item_Status
1)action items with Action_Item_Status='Overdue', (over due email)
1)action items with Action_Item_Status='Due Soon', (reminder email)

Action_Status_As_Of_Today can have these values:-Done,Overdue,Due Soon,Not Due Yet

My datasheet contains the following columns:-
Action_source(filename-worksheet_name) 'column A'
Status_Item 'column B'
Status_Item_details 'column C'
Action_Due_date 'column D'
Action_Party 'column E'
Action_Party_Email 'column F'
Classification_of_Status 'column G'
Action_Status 'column H'
Action_Status_As_Of_Today 'column I'

The 'Action_Party_Email' can be duplicated.(Ie. the same email address can be found in different 'Action_Item_No' records.

In each email, i need to also include the data found in 'Status_Item' & "Action_Due_date" columns.

Please kindly help.Thanks alot in advanced:)

Firstly you do not appear to tell us what the problem is ?

Secondly do you have outlook set up ?

Thirdly have you thought of doing it as mail merge from word ?
