Looping Records to Send eMail...

Two days in a row with questions about looping reports to send eMail... yep, time to post.  Below are two different methods.  The Excel one just drops the data to an Excel workbook while the second one uses an existing report to save and send PDF.

For both just sopy into a Module (not behind a Form) and save remembering not to use the Function name as the name of the Module.  Then just adjust the path, report, table and field information and you're good to go.
The difficult I do immediately, the impossible takes a little bit longer.
