    I have enjoyed working through this solution for adding multiple attachments to an email from within Excel VBA. Thank you. I know that a lot of us benefit and then want some aspect customized for exactly what we are trying to do. I am no different, but for step 8. Can we set the path that the Browse window will open with? I can browse over to another folder at a different location but if I could set the path that would be a time saver.

    I am able to "Quickly send email with multiple attachments attached in Excel with Kutools for Excel" using your steps above, but would like to take it one step further and personalize each email by inserting their names (from a column in the Excel sheet) into the body of the email. While in the body of the email, I try selecting the field and clicking on "Insert Placeholder" but nothing happens. Any idea why or how I can fix this? Thank you!
