     I will cover rest of the 5 apps in my next post!!

    Till then Enjoy!!

    Some months before, i had been given an extra task. The task was somewhat like this-

    • Had to take some excels sheets(count could be anything) from a folder.
    • Every excel sheet was having some codes. There were no limit for these codes.
    • Had to create separate excel sheet for distinct codes.Like, if there were  5 distinct codes in the excel then there would be 5 different excel sheets.
    • At last, i had to send mails attaching these excels.
      So before i automated all above mentioned things, ( Yes ! i did automate everything.) it used to take a lot of  time.So, i had to find out the way to make it less time taking. I chose VB.Script to code because of its easy syntax and better handling with excel files.
    Here , i am attaching my code for sending an email with attachment.

    * I have designed this code so that it can attach the files present in the folder as well as in the subfolders.

    So, First just look at the setup-

    Please find my code here - Send Mail With Attachment

    Below are the screenshots of setup, according to the code.

    Folder Setup:

    Save the code as .vbs on your desktop or anywhere.

    Once you are done just double click and you will something like this-
