VBA within Outlook Compile error

VBA within Outlook Compile error

VBA within Outlook Compile error


I have used this coding bellow in the past but now I am getting a Compile error. looking for some guidance how to change this coding to get around the compile error.

Sub Sendoffice365invoice()

Dim myItem As Outlook.MailItem
Dim myolApp As Outlook.Application
Dim myRecipient As Recipient

Set myolApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set myItem = myolApp.CreateItem(olMailItem)
Set myAttachments = myItem.Attachments

myAttachments.Add "H:\Office 365 Invoice\Office 365 Business Premium Invoice.pdf"
myAttachments.Add "H:\Office 365 Invoice\Office 365 Exchange online plan Invoice .pdf"

With myItem
.Importance = olImportanceNormal
.Subject = "Office 365 Invoice"

.Display 'optional
End With

End Sub

RE: VBA within Outlook Compile error

I try run that code in outlook 2016/365 and it works fine if I comment out the .add attachments part?

For some reason it didn't work (with a different error) until I saved it to the project.

I get the same error as you running it under excel, so perhaps you don't have the required references loaded into the project or are missing one, refer under tools/references? (FYI I have the following enabled if it helps)

Thanks for trying on your machine at least I know the code works. I did check my settings and they were the same so removed 365 and reinstalled with no luck.
