How did I add a 'Snapshot' attachment & email it Via Lotus Notes

5 New Member
Hi All

I need to email a report (with contains graphs) via Lotus Notes. I've tried the 'SendObjectSnp' method (which works with some Lotus Notes clients (but not many others)); so I used the code below: -

Public Sub SEND_EMAILS()

Dim session As Object
Dim db As Object
Dim doc As Object
Dim rtitem As Object
Dim rtitem_rtf As Object
Dim t_rpt_Name As String

Set session = CreateObject("N otes.NotesSessi on")
Set db = session.Current Database
Set doc = db.CreateDocume nt

'output report to text file on C:\

DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, rpt_Name, acFormatSNP, ("C:\" & rpt_Name), False

doc.Form = "Memo"
doc.SendTo = temp_ccList
doc.subject = subject
doc.Body = Message

'Attach Doc 1
Set rtitem = doc.CreateRichT extItem("Attach ment")
Call rtitem.EMBEDOBJ ECT(1454, "", "C:\" & rpt_Name)
Call rtitem.ADDNEWLI NE(1, True)

This appears to attach a Richtext version of the report (rather than a snapshot) to the email, & sends it via Lotus Notes. However, if I try to open the attachment, SNAPSHOT doesn't recognise it; strangley I can view just the text part of the attachment if I just 'View' it within lotus notes.

How can I attach the report attachment so snapshot can open it (from Lotus Notes)?

Thanks in advance

Hello MarkStorer!

Do youy mean firing a button that add an attachment to the body of a Notes email? Below VBA code which I use rather frequently, helps add such attachment, if you have Notes running:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Private Sub EmailAttachment_Click()
  2. On Error GoTo Err_MailMeReport_Click
  3.     Dim stDocName As String
  4.     Dim stPersonName As String
  5.     stDocName = "YourData" 'form being added to email
  6.     stPersonName = AssignedTo 'field that pulls email recipient
  7.     DoCmd.SendObject acForm, stDocName, , AssignedTo, , , "Please take a look, what are your thoughts?"
  8. Exit_MailMeReport_Click:
  9.     Exit Sub
  10. Err_MailMeReport_Click:
  11.     MsgBox "You have chosen to cancel the email", vbInformation + vbOKOnly, _
  12.                "Data Central" 'Err.Description
  13.     Resume Exit_MailMeReport_Click
  14. End Sub
You will therefore have the option of adding as Snapshot or else...

Try it!

Hi Dököll

Thanks for your reply !

I've tried your code & it works a treat for outlook - I will use it in future applications if you don't mind ;-)

However the SendObject method is unreliable for LotusNotes clients (for some clients, it works & for others, it doesn't) the only methodolgy I've known to be reliable are variations of the script I've posted (which is basically a script released from this excellent forum).

However I've not found a LotusNotes-reliable script which can send anything other than an rtf format - unfortunately I need to send a snapshot (or PDF I guess) as I have a graph in my attachment the rtf format doesn't display graphics.

Any thoughts ?

I can send an email from any client (outlook, lotus notes), and fill it with all sorts of fonts (bold, courier, etc). When the mail is received, the client reads it inline, not as an attachment. When I send an html email thru my Visual Basic program (using standard SMTP protocol), it is received as an attachment. How can I get it so that it is read inline? Thanks, Bruce Brodinsky
