send email without using a macro

86 New Member
Hi. I was wondering if there was a way to send an email without using the Send Object method for a macro. if you use the macro, you will get this warning:

I know in VB .NET you have to import an outlook object or w/e it is and then there were methods that allowed you to edit the To, CC, BCC, subject, etc

I was wondering if there is something similar in VBA to do that.

What i want to do is the following:
1) when user clicks "Send Email" button, it opens up MS Outlook
2) it attaches a report
3) fills out the subject

Thanks for the clarification. I should apologise for misleading. I always use Replace() myself to ensure such an anomaly never arises.

I'm sure the problem is still the same. Would you mind posting the details again as I don't keep details of all the threads I work on in my RAM, and aging as I am, my HDD is not too hot either. Short of that I would need to search through the thread again, and it's a long thread already.

ah i noticed something else...

see the attached screenshot..

there's no PDF format.

i looked at my colleague's computer and there is PDF... now i'm 100% sure that is the problem.

Did you not say you were developing on a 2007 system? If not, then acOutputPDF was introduced in 2007 so that would explain the omission. If so, then I can only guess that support for PDF is an optional inclusion and you may need to reinstall the software making sure that PDF support is included.

Yeah the database was recently converted from 2000 (or 2002, i forget) to 2007. doubt it has anything to do with the fact that he's using windows 7 and i'm still on XP. maybe ill try to reinstall access 2007 and adobe pdf.

omg finally i fixed it!

i reinstalled MS office and adobe acrobat... still the same problem.. so i figured i'd google it and see if anything came up.

Turns out that I was missing an addin for 2007.


so i downloaded the Microsoft Save as PDF or XPS addin, installed it and now it works perfectly :)

So not only is 2007 required, but a separate download is also required. Sorry for the bum info Jeffrey. I had no idea that PDF wasn't available as standard in 2007 (I still only use up to 2003 personally). Well done for clearing that up though

@NeoPa: yeah i didn't know either lol.

So I guess this would be a good reference for those who want to try the same and gets to this problem as well :)

In my database I do something very similar. Works GREAT!
Something like this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "rptCrewAuthorization", acFormatSNP, outFileName(0), False
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. GenerateEmail "asdf@asdf.com", "sdfg@sdfg.com;dfgh@dfgh.com", "fghj@fghj.com;ghjk@ghjk.com", ContractorName.Value & " Crew Authorization " & cmbContractID.Column(1, cmbContractID.ListIndex) & "-" & AuthNum.Value & " - Starting " & Forms!frmCrewAuthorization!AuthDate.Value, Forms!frmCrewAuthorization!Name.Value & "'s Crew" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf, outFileName, False
