Email Excel Spreadsheet as Email Body Issues

Hello all. I had a production manager wanting an excel spreadsheet mailed as the body of the email. As some of you know the code generated by excel to produce the email is pretty crazy. But as a result, it showed up fine in Outlook and Android but it did not show the gridlines on the spreadsheet. So this code is based on the excellent work by Ron DeBruin over at http://www.rondebruin.nl/win/s1/outlook/bmail3.htm . I did a replacement for the HTML Range in this manner and the grid lines did appear. And the manager was happy.

Sub Mail_Selection_Range_Outlook_Body()
‘For Tips see: http://www.rondebruin.nl/win/winmail/Outlook/tips.htm
‘Don’t forget to copy the function RangetoHTML in the module.

    Dim rng As Range
    Dim OutApp As Object
    Dim OutMail As Object
‘MsgBox Cells(5, 9).Value
    Set rng = Nothing
    On Error Resume Next
    ‘Only the visible cells in the selection
    Set rng = Selection.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible)
    ‘You can also use a fixed range if you want
    ‘Set rng = Sheets(“YourSheet”).Range(“D4:D12”).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible)
    On Error GoTo 0

    If rng Is Nothing Then
        MsgBox “The selection is not a range or the sheet is protected” & _
               vbNewLine & “please correct and try again.”, vbOKOnly
        Exit Sub
    End If

    With Application
        .EnableEvents = False
        .ScreenUpdating = False
    End With

    Set OutApp = CreateObject(“Outlook.Application”)
    Set OutMail = OutApp.CreateItem(0)

    On Error Resume Next
    With OutMail
        .BodyFormat = olFormatHTML
        .To = “you@you.com”       
           
               
       
         .CC = “”
        .BCC = “”
        .Subject = “Testing Purchase Order Email To Steve”
        .HTMLBody = RangetoHTML(rng)
        Replace .HTMLBody, “border-left:none”, “border-left:solid;border-width: 1px;border-color:black”
        Replace .HTMLBody, “border-right:none”, “border-right:solid;border-width: 1px;border-color:black”
        Replace .HTMLBody, “border-bottom:none”, “border-bottom:solid;border-width: 1px;border-color:black”
        Replace .HTMLBody, “border-top:none”, “border-bottom:solid;border-width: 1px;border-color:black”
        .Send
         ‘or use .Display
    End With
    On Error GoTo 0

    With Application
        .EnableEvents = True
        .ScreenUpdating = True
    End With

    Set OutMail = Nothing
    Set OutApp = Nothing
