Send email from form based on information on the from

Send email from form based on information on the from Icon
My form is named "NotestoStaff" and it contains the following fields:

ID (an auto field)
Date Opened
Status
Note To
Note From
Re
Message

Once the fields are filled in I want to click send (a command button located on the form) and the Note to field will populate the email address in anew outlook email, the re field will populate the subject line, and the message field will populate the body of the email.

I prefer this than sending an object, but if this is not possible may have to resort to sending the object.
 

Access - Outlook

Access - Outlook Icon
My application is distributed to 15 users and I want the users to be able to email records directly from Access.

My idea is that a set of queries will populate a"e-mail"-form and from there the user should have the option to Send the email, thus also creating a timestamp of this event. The email body is a"template" were"placeholders" should accommodate selected data. The email will accommodate 2 default attachments and one to be selected by each user. Ideally the"From" field should include a generic email address related to our"collective email-box".
 

Access Form Text Box Entry depending on Combo Box selection

Access Form Text Box Entry depending on Combo Box selection Icon
What I would like to do is have a form field (text box) auto populate a value depending on the selection of a combo box within the same form.

Example: Combo Box Selection is "Prospect " and Text Box value would auto populate to "Opportunity"
or: Combo Box Selection is "Client " and Text Box value would auto populate to "Clients"

The Combo Box is named "Contact_Type" and the Text Box is named "Category"

Basically I'm looking for an Expression or VBA Code that can do this..
 

Auto-populate and Attachment Problem

Auto-populate and Attachment Problem Icon
Firstly I would like to auto populate certain fields base on a ride name but do not know how to go about doing that. Next, whenever I start filling in a form, and when I wan to attached a file it always show "Cannot update. Database or object is read-only". I can only attached a file when I go next and then go back which I think is not really practical.
 

Email report as body of email (RTF)

Email report as body of email (RTF) Icon
Having spent the last hour Googling sites for answers to the issue I'm having, I haven't been able to find a solution so apologies for creating another thread about this (it seems this isquite a popular problem people are having!).

So basically, I want to email a report I'm generating in Access to someone but putting the report into the body of the email, After looking through theseforums, I found the following thread which was really useful on getting the basics done:

This is the code I've skilfully copied and pasted into my Access db:

[CODE]

So the above code correctly creates an email and populates the "To" and "Subject" fields fine. However, when it goes to populate the body of the email, this is what I get:

It's not replicating the layout of the report in the body of the email. It just seems to be giving me a load of rubbish instead!

I've also tried changing the ".body" to ".
 

Auto Populate from a Search Query

Auto Populate from a Search Query Icon
I have 2 tables: 1) tbl - Issue_Codes and 2) tbl - Master Table

Step1 - I created a Search query using the "Loan Number" field in "Master Table". I named this query"qry - Loan Information Search."

Step 2 - I then created a form using this Search query. However, the "Issue_ID" field in this form was unable to give me the drop down box, so I deleted and add the existing fields (Issue_ID and Issue_type) from the Master Table itself. Now, I have a Search form with "Issue_ID" field having the drop down box.

Step 3 - Create an auto populate field (Issue_type) in the form. I want to select the "Issue_ID" in the drop down box and the "Issue_type" field will auto populate based on the references in "Issue_Codes" table.

How can I write a DLookUp in "Issue_type" Control Source?

Access 2010, how to email an open report..... Icon
I'm trying to email a report. I have a button on the report (code below) and it works however I need to modify the code to populate the DoCmd.SendObject "to" with the email address on the form.

[CODE]

This works but obviously the "To" is blank on the Outlook email that it generates.

I've tried to have the code look on the form and pull the email address in by adding the form & field but that gives me the error msg! "Run-time error '2498' An Expression youentered is the wrong data type for one of the arguments"

Auto populate the Issue type using the reference

Auto populate the Issue type using the reference Icon
I have two tables 1) tbl_Master and 2) tbl_Issue_Codes - this table has two fields: Issue_code and Issue_type.

I want to create a form from the Master table where I select the Issue Code it will auto populate the Issue type using the reference in "Issue_Code" table.
 

Auto Populate fields

Auto Populate fields Icon
I have a form (see attached) which has a field called PropertyID. Originally I had Indexed set to yes(duplicates OK). When I would enter an ID the manufacturer, model, and serial # fields would auto populate.

I then realized that with that setting users can enter duplicate data. When I changed Indexed to Yes(No Duplicates) I lost the auto populate function.

I would like to have the best of both worlds. I need the field to stay Unique as well as populate those 3 fields.
