If WorkRng Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
WorkRng.Activate
WorkRng.Select

xCount = xWSh.UsedRange.Rows.Count

xSU = Application.ScreenUpdating

EV = ActiveWorkbook.EnvelopeVisible

Application.ScreenUpdating = False


For xI = 1 To xCount

If (xWSh.Range("A" & xI) = "") Then
Exit For
End If
ActiveWorkbook.EnvelopeVisible = True
With ActiveSheet.MailEnvelope

ich möchte das kopierte nicht als Datei in eine E-Mail einfügen, sondern per copy and paste in die E-Mail einfügen. Wie geht das in dem VBA-Code?

Hi, Carey, all above the VBAs can add many emails address (To, BCC, CC) to send to by using ; as separator. For instance,  .To = "; ; "
