Email Just A Portion Of A Spreadsheet

Q. I regularly e-mail an Excel worksheet that includes a monthly sales report to a staff member in another city. I would rather not send her the entire worksheet, just the monthly sales portion. Is there some way I can do that?

Click on Mail Recipient to bring up this Outlook e-mail screen at right:

Fill in the e-mail address information and a short note, if you wish, and send.
