Run the excel export code before you send email "one", and use the attach= option there in the filename email.

is there code that can tell the email to match the email address or names so that it only gets data and excel file for a specific person and sents that out.

Re: combine two codes

To dynamically email different recipients with different attachments you will need to use PUT statement email directives. This link to the documentation explains directives:

First, set up a list of recipients in a dataset.

Then, wrap your code(s) in macro definitions where the recipient is accepted as a macro parameter.

Now you can use call execute() to call your macro(s) from the recipients dataset.
