How to automatically send email based on cell value in Excel?

Supposing you want to send an email through Outlook to a certain recipient based on a specified cell value in Excel. For example, when the value of cell D7 in a worksheet is greater than 200, then an email is created automatically. This article introduces a VBA method for you to quickly solve this issue.

Automatically send email based on cell value with VBA code


Automatically send email based on cell value with VBA code

Please do as follows to send an email based on cell value in Excel.

1. In the worksheet you need to send email based on its cell value (here says the cell D7), right-click the sheet tab, and select View Code from the context menu. See screenshot:

2. In the popping up Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window, please copy and paste the below VBA code into the sheet code window.

VBA code: Send email through Outlook based on cell value in Excel

Dim xRg As Range
'Update by Extendoffice 2018/3/7
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    On Error Resume Next
    If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
  Set xRg = Intersect(Range("D7"), Target)
    If xRg Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
    If IsNumeric(Target.Value) And Target.Value > 200 Then
        Call Mail_small_Text_Outlook
    End If
End Sub
Sub Mail_small_Text_Outlook()
    Dim xOutApp As Object
    Dim xOutMail As Object
    Dim xMailBody As String
    Set xOutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    Set xOutMail = xOutApp.CreateItem(0)
    xMailBody = "Hi there" & vbNewLine & vbNewLine & _
              "This is line 1" & vbNewLine & _
              "This is line 2"
    On Error Resume Next
    With xOutMail
        .To = "Email Address"
        .CC = ""
        .BCC = ""
        .Subject = "send by cell value test"
        .Body = xMailBody
        .Display   'or use .Send
    End With
    On Error GoTo 0
    Set xOutMail = Nothing
    Set xOutApp = Nothing
End Sub

Notes:

1. In the VBA code, D7 and value > 200 are the cell and cell value you will send email based on.

2. Please change the email body as you need in xMailBody line in the code.

3. Replace the Email Address with the recipient email address in line .To = "Email Address".

4. And specify the Cc and Bcc recipients as you need in .CC = “” and Bcc = “” sections.

5. Finally change the email subject in line .Subject = "send by cell value test".

3. Press the Alt + Q keys together to close the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

From now on, when the value you entering in cell D7 is greater than 200, an email with specified recipients and body will be created automatically in Outlook. You can click the Send button to send this email. See screenshot:

Notes:

1. The VBA code is only working when you use Outlook as your email program.

2. If the entered data in cell D7 is a text value, the email window will be popped out as well.

    Hi there,


    I currently having a little trouble this the coding (new to this - may have bitten off more than I can chew)


    I currently have a spreadsheet with the following that I need help to automate and send email for fault that are at our properties for our business


    I currently need a code that will do use the following data:


    1) An address and the issue ( 2 "general" cells that have been merged via ((In cell D1)) " = =CONCAT(B1," "C1,) "
    The address in B1 will allways be same (more or less)
    Whilst C1 will always be changing dependant on the fault at the property.


    2) An email to be sent by the same email adress, ( can I use $E$1 or I have to use E1 - E1 . for example) or can I just Input " TheEmailAdress@.co.uk" in the line of code


    3) The email body to be populated in the similar way to point 1) ...... ((In cell F1)) " =CONCAT(G1," ",H1)
    These will be changing constantly as they represent the company (G1) and what they are doing , fixing, quoting ect (H1)

    4) The trigger to send the email off, I would be the number 7 , the sheet gets updated daily (7 days in a week)
    as such I need the trigger to send the email on day 7, but no constantly like on day 8, 9 , 10+ ect. and not before such as 1-6, this would be in A4 : A 100+ (as we are constantly expanding


    4) I've used small snippets from other users who mentioned about using a list for the trigger to send the email, but not sure was 100 % it was correct, but i'd need it to scan though all Collum A.... A4: A100
    and if there are 47 cells that contain only " 7 " then 47 Emails will be sent


    Thank you ever so much for reading and I hope you can help :)

    Hi

    Thank you so much for posting this VBA Code and instructions. When I found it I felt like I had won the lotto. However I am stuck on something so I'm hoping you can help (I'm new to VBA, only have very basic understanding).

    I've copied the code and changed the cell and cell value to pick from a range if a criteria is met. I have tried and tested and it works and I received an email to outlook based on the criteria.

    1) However, I cannot seem to figure out how to get the VBA code to run automatically when I open up the excel worksheet, rather than having to click on the VBA application and select run. Could you advise if there is an additional prompt to type into the VBA code above that will do this or does it have to be done separately.

    2) Also is there a way to get the VBA code to send a mail to a person if the due date is yes for a certain item as shown in example below.
    email hidden column
    Name

    Procedure
    Procedure no.1 due date yes
    Procedure no. 2 due date no

    I would have numerous people in the spreadsheet (going across horizontally in a row) and 'Yes' could be highlighted for various overdue procedures (listed vertically in column A. Is there a way to create a VBA code that runs for something like this - if 'Yes' for 'Person 1', then email 'person 1' with 'procedure no #' (or numbers) and due date(s). Being able to list in the email all the procedures and their subsequent due dates.

    I wouldn't mind if I had to set a separate VBA code for each person as long as it sent a mail of all the documents overdue for that person and the due dates.

    Hoping you can help

    How can I edit the code to send an email based on a date in the cell. For example, I need a document reviewed every 15 months and I want to kick out an email at 12 months to an email address saying the document needs to be reviewed. I've got it now to auto-send an email by changing .Display to .Send and it works great as written, but what do I need to change to use a date function instead of a whole number??

    I am having trouble getting this code to prompt if the value in the cell is changed indirectly. For example, if I have Sum equation changing this value automatically. When the equation runs and the value goes above the set value to prompt the email, it does not do so, unless I physically change the number myself. Is there a way to make the email prompt even if changed indirectly?

      Dear Jordan,
      The following VBA code can help you solve the problem. Please don't forget to replace the "Email Address" with the recipient's email address in the code. Thank you.

      Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
      Dim xRgPre As Range
      On Error Resume Next
      If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
      Set xRg = Range("D7")
      Set xRgPre = xRg.Precedents
      If xRg.Value > 200 Then
      If Target.Address = xRg.Address Then
      Call Mail_small_Text_Outlook
      ElseIf (Not xRgPre Is Nothing) And (Intersect(Target, xRgPre).Address = Target.Address) Then
      Call Mail_small_Text_Outlook
      End If
      End If
      End Sub
      Sub Mail_small_Text_Outlook()
      Dim xOutApp As Object
      Dim xOutMail As Object
      Dim xMailBody As String
      Set xOutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
      Set xOutMail = xOutApp.CreateItem(0)
      xMailBody = "Hi there" & vbNewLine & vbNewLine & _
      "This is line 1" & vbNewLine & _
      "This is line 2"
      On Error Resume Next
      With xOutMail
      .To = "Email Address"
      .CC = ""
      .BCC = ""
      .Subject = "send by cell value test"
      .Body = xMailBody
      .Display 'or use .Send
      End With
      On Error GoTo 0
      Set xOutMail = Nothing
      Set xOutApp = Nothing
      End Sub

        I used this code with the only change being I have applied it to an entire column [Set xRg = Range("D4:D13")]. Now the event triggers whenever a calculation is made regardless of whether the valve in Column D is below the target value. Any idea's why that is?


        Dim Xrg As Range
        Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
        Dim xRgPre As Range
        On Error Resume Next
        If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
        Set Xrg = Range("D4:D13")
        Set xRgPre = Xrg.Precedents
        If Xrg.Value < 1200 Then
        If Target.Address = Xrg.Address Then
        Call Mail_small_Text_Outlook
        ElseIf (Not xRgPre Is Nothing) And (Intersect(Target, xRgPre).Address = Target.Address) Then
        Call Mail_small_Text_Outlook
        End If
        End If
        End Sub

        Sub Mail_small_Text_Outlook()
        Dim xOutApp As Object
        Dim xOutMail As Object
        Dim xMailBody As String
        Set xOutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
        Set xOutMail = xOutApp.CreateItem(0)
        xMailBody = "Hi" & vbNewLine & _
        "Test vba" _
        & vbNewLine & _
        "Line 2."
        On Error Resume Next
        With xOutMail
        .To = ""
        .CC = ""
        .BCC = ""
        .Subject = "Auto Email Test"
        .Body = xMailBody
        .Display
        End With
        On Error GoTo 0
        Set xOutMail = Nothing
        Set xOutApp = Nothing

        End Sub


        Thanks.

        I've modified suggested code to try to make it work for my application.
        Changed xRg = Range("C2:C40") and If xRg.Value = -1.

        The issue that I'm having is anytime there is a change to any cell and as long as one of the cells in my range is = -1 it will call Mail_small_Text_Outlook.
        I'm trying to only call if any cell in my range is changed indirectly to -1.
        I was also wondering if and how it would be possible to have it meet two criteria.
        Like check range A and range B and if they meet criteria call function.

        Thanks in advance for the help. I'm new to all this but reading through this thread has me about 90% there.

        Set xRg = Range("C2:C40")
        Set xRgPre = xRg.Precedents
        If xRg.Value = -1 Then
        If Target.Address = xRg.Address Then
        Call Mail_small_Text_Outlook
        ElseIf (Not xRgPre Is Nothing) And (Intersect(Target, xRgPre).Address = Target.Address) Then
        Call Mail_small_Text_Outlook
        End If
        End If
        End Sub

    How should the code be modified, to apply to an entire range of cells?
