Hi Jyoti,

Can you tell me what version of Excel you are using? The code works fine whether I change .Display to .Send or not.

Hi pavan chougule,
The following two lines in the code contain the email body content. You can manually modify the email body by pressing the space key on your keyboard to add a space.
xStartMsg = "<font size='5' color='black'> Good Day," & "<br> <br>" & "Please find the chart below: " & "<br> <br> </font>"
xEndMsg = "<font size='4' color='black'> Many Thanks," & "<br> <br> </font>"

It includes the chart as an attachment. Do you have any idea how to include it as a picture in the mail body itself. Thank you,Youssef

The code has been updated. The recipient can view the chart normally. Please give it a try.
Note: In the code, please change the "Chart 1" to your own chart name. And specify the email address in the To field.

Hi Kuba,
Please remove the / tag in <img src="/.
The error is caused by the editor in the site.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

cześć, pełny kod działa tylko do momentu podglądu komunikatu, przy wysyłce adresat otrzymuje błąd i wykresu nie widać ("Nie można wyświetlić połączonego obrazu. Plik mógł zostać przeniesiony lub usunięty albo zmieniono jego nazwę. Sprawdź czy łącze wskazuje poprawny plik i lokazlizację.") Czy z Was też tak ktoś miał czy tylko u mnie taki zonk? Prosze o pomoc, tutaj kod, który dotyczy wykresum już tak mało brakuje :)

Dim xChartName As String
Dim xChartPath As String
Dim xPath As String
Dim xChart As ChartObject
On Error Resume Next
Dim wydzialy As String
wydzialy = lista.Cells(3, 75)
xChartName = Application.InputBox(wydzialy, "KuTools for Excel", , , , , , 2) 'Wykres1 '"Please enter the chart name:"
If xChartName = "" Then Exit Sub
Set xChart = Sheets("Wykresy").ChartObjects(xChartName) 'Change "Sheet1" to your worksheet name
If xChart Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
xChartPath = Application.ActiveWorkbook.Path & "\" & Environ("USERNAME") & VBA.Format(VBA.Now(), "DD_MM_YY_HH_MM_SS") & ".svg" '.bmp '.svg '.svg ma lepsza jakość
xPath = "<p align='Left'><img src="/%20&%20"cid:" & Mid(xChartPath, InStrRev(xChartPath, "\") + 1) & """ width=500 height=300 > <br> <br>"
xChart.Chart.Export xChartPath
