Send Email With Attachment (report) Via Outlook Using Vba

Send Report and Attachments in Email
User is looking at a job details. Job has pictures and PDF's as external files saved in the filesystem of the computer. User clicks Email Invoice. System attaches report as a PDFand opens Outlook Email message with email address, subject and body filled and the report PDF as an attachment

I can currently send a report as an attachment in an Outlook Email by using the "DoCmd.SendObject acSendReport" code.

That works nicely for me because it attaches the report I specify but has the limitation that I cannot attach any other objects.

I therefore came across the following code which allows me to add multiple attachments to an Outlook email message:


The problem with the above is that I cannot figure out how to attach a report of my choice. I don't know if there is a way to tell access to open a report and attach it as a PDF (in the above code).

Worst comes to worst, I'll try to figure out a way to save the report as a PDF (to the local filesystem) and then attach that as one of the attachments.

I'm trying to send report called "Harmonogram" as attachment in e-mail. I don't want to use send object method because sometimes I need to sent more files as attachment. Here is the code I use:

Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.application") Set objEmail = objOutlook.CreateItem(olMailItem) Set thereport = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("Harmonogram")
Email = Me.Email
With objEmail .To = Email .Subject = Harmonogram .Body = text .Attachments.Add thereport, olByReference, 1, "Harmonogram" .Display End With
Set objEmail = Nothing

I have found this code on Internet but there is a problem in line: .Attachments.Add thereport, olByReference, 1, "Harmonogram". It shows me an error message: Data type conversion error. - 3421.

Filter a Report Based on an Attribute a to be Emailed VBA
I'm using Windows 7, Access 2007, Outlook 2010

I've written the script to generate the email, attach the report (actually in the body of theemail) and send it to the correct people.

My issue is that I want to send only the relevant records from the report to each person. I've put the relevant person's email into the report (of a query) to make it easier. I want to email all the records with one email address to that email address and so on.

This would mean, for example, there are 6 records with [@email] in the email field of the report and 3 records with [@email]. I want the 6 records with [@email] to be emailed to [@email]and the 3 records with [@email] to be emailed to [@email].

Automate *.pdf (multiple reports) to send from Access thru MS Outlook
I am trying to automate sending daily reports to a select list of internal employees, and Access 2007 is only letting me send one at a time, not multiple reports in a single email.

Not only do I have this problem, but, each time I try to send one usingthe macro function (this is one report for one email) MS Outlook asks me to accept/deny this priviledge. How do I get around this, so that I can automate the sending of multiple reports, and override the security of MS Outlook that forces me to accept/deny sending the email? My boss would like me to send out the reports on his behalf as if it is from his email box? Can this be done

MsAccess VBA to the outlook outbox
I am trying to send an automatic mail from MsAccess VBA to the outlook outboxes, when this message is sent, this error appears.

A program is trying to automatically send e-mail on your behalf.

The help button says:

If you are unsure which program is sending the e-mail or why, you may want to click No to avoid any possible spread of viruses.

Note When this message is displayed, the Yes button is not available for 5 seconds.

How can I disable this protection as we use MS Outlook for only sending email?

VBA to use Query email addresses in TO: of Outlook
I have a query that gathers email lists based on whether or not the record is part of the distribution list. I need to be able to either:

1. Open outlook new mail message with the To: field populated with email address, followed by ;


2. Create a listing of the email addresses, with each followed by ; and then I can do the rest.

Here is what I am thinking for the VBA for #2

Dim Outlook

Dim rs As Recordset
Set rs = qryPipeline

Do While Not rs.EOF
Outlook = Outlook + emailaddress + ;

Me.Text0 = Outlook

Then I would set up the email procedure to have this sent every Sunday since the newsletter will be sent monday morning If I use
