How to E-mail Excel 2013 Workbooks

To e-mail a copy of a workbook you have open in Excel 2013 to a client or co-worker, choose File→Share→ Email (Alt+FDE). When you do this, a Send Using E-Mail panel appears with the following five options:

  • Send as Attachment to create a new e-mail message using your default e-mail program with a copy of the workbook file as its attachment file.

  • Send a Link to create a new e-mail message using your default e-mail program that contains a hyperlink to the workbook file. (This option is available only when the workbook file is saved on your company’s or ISP’s web server.)

  • Send as PDF to convert the Excel workbook to the Adobe PDF (Portable Document File) format and make this new PDF the attachment file in a new e-mail message. (Your e-mail recipient must have a copy of the Adobe Reader installed on his or her computer in order to open the attachment.)

  • Send as XPS to convert the Excel workbook to a Microsoft XPS (XML Paper Specification) file and make this new XPS file the attachment in a new e-mail message. (Your e-mail recipient must have an XPS Reader installed on his or her computer in order to open the attachment; this reader is installed automatically on computers running Windows 7 or Windows Vista.)

  • Send as Internet Fax to send the workbook as a fax through an online fax service provider. You will need an account with a service provider as well as the Windows Fax and Scan Windows feature installed.

After selecting the e-mail option you want to use, Windows opens a new e-mail message in your e-mail program with a link to the workbook file or the file attached to it. To send the link or file, fill in the recipient’s e-mail address in the To text box and comments you want to make about the spreadsheet in the body of the message before you click the Send button.
