Default NO CODE - mail merge to Outlook with attachment with CC

Another slightly less tedious way is, working offline, to use the Mail Merge
Wizard in Word to generate the emails. Then switch to Outlook where they
will be found in the Outbox. Now add the attachment to each, manually, and
when done go online again.

That said, there is no reason that the process cannot be done manually -
Execute the mailmerge to a new document, then select and copy each section
in turn, paste into a new document, use FileSend to which will open mail
program, allowing you to add attachments, enter the addressee etc. etc. -
Very mind numbing and prone to errors.

Hi - I've been reading posts here regarding mail merging to Outlook with
attachments or CC and it seems to require VBA code to do this. I'm not
allowed to do any coding in my current environment so these posts and the
MVP
article do not help me. I have a customer who needs to know if she can do
the
any or all of the following without using VB code:

Mail merge in word to email messages and/or
1. Customize individual messages when sending (the workaround I figured
is
to customize the onscreen message and then using the Merge to email
dialog,
choose Current Record and do that message by messge)
2. Through the mail merge tool use a CC field
3. Through the mail merge tool include an Outlook signature (my
workaround -
cut and paste from Outlook into Word)
4. Through the mail merge tool include an attachment (my workaround - get
to
step 5 of the merge and then send each individually using the File, Send
To
command - that gives the outgoing mail message screen where you can
include
attachment and also CC)

She wants to basically use Outlook in Word to send multiple emails that
are
largely the same with flexibility to customize each before sending.

I do not believe it is possible to do this using simply the Mail Merge
tool
in Word and all my research supports this. Can someone please tell me if
it
is possible to do this?

Default NO CODE - mail merge to Outlook with attachment with CC

Brian's post was very helpfu. Moreover, by ading the following text to the
email body, "cc: Variable Name and Address" with the name and address of
the individual who I want to cc: for this particular addressee; it makes it
easy when I go through the stacked messages in my Outbox to add the
appropriate cc:, and then click "Send". When I go back "Online", all the
messages go out to the right folks.
