Sending emails from an email list in excel but having problems with duplicate emails and how to filter them. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I currently have a monthly list of items that gets populated and assigned to personnel to dispose of before the end of the month.  Sometimes the same person is responsible for a few different items.  In the populated list there's details such as material, description, lot, storage location, amount. My question is there a way to create a macro that will automatically send emails to the individuals that will include some of the descriptions in the body of the email?  For those that are assigned multiple rows, is it possible to send one email with all details.  I'm also okay with not including details and just sending a notification email, but filters out the duplicates as to not send 9 emails to one person. The purpose of this is so that I can send the original notification email to the employees, but then send out occasional reminders during the month. I've played around with some VBA, but other than that do not have much experience. I was able to get one macro to work, but ran into the issue of sending multiple emails to one person. Below is a made up table, but close enough to what I'm actually working with. Any help would be appreciated
