VBA - working with Outlook videos | Excel VBA Part 29.1 - Creating Outlook Emails
Posted by Andrew Gould on 26 March 2014
Writing VBA code in Excel doesn't only allow you to control Excel, you also have access to all of the other Office applications. This video looks at how to create emails in Microsoft Outlook by writing code in Excel. You'll learn how to reference the Outlook Object Library, several methods for creating a new instance of the Outlook application and how to create new emails. You'll see how to set basic properties of an email, such as the address and subject and also how to add attachments and make sure that the email includes a signature. The video spends a lot of time talking about the different email formats and how to set the body text of the email according to which format you've chosen; this includes how to write plain text emails, and how to construct basic HTML emails including how to format them. Towards the end the video also shows how to write emails using the Word Editor, allowing you to copy and paste information directly from Excel.

Making a video bigger
You can increase the size of your video to make it fill the screen like this:
Play your video (the icons shown won't appear until you do), then click on the full screen icon which appears as shown at its bottom right-hand corner.
When you've finished viewing a video in full screen mode, just press the Esc key to return to normal view.
Improving the quality of a video
To improve the quality of a video, first click on the Settings icon:
Make sure you're playing your video so that the icons shown appear, then click on this gear icon at the bottom right-hand corner.
Choose to change the video quality:
Click on Quality as shown to bring up the submenu.
The higher the number you choose, the better will be your video quality (but the slower the connection speed):
Don't choose the HD option unless you have a fast enough connection speed to support it!
Is your Wise Owl speaking too slowly (or too quickly)? You can also use the Settings menu above to change your playback speed.
