Automate faxing in VB VBA from MS Access

P: n/a
Does anyone have working code to send a fax from VBA using Outlook.Mailitem?
I have tried some examples I have found and they all simply try to use the
Fax number as an e-mail address.

Thanks in advance

Actually I just have the MS Fax service installed with XP.
Is there some way to just "print to the fax"?

You need Winfax installed so it can be selected in the Printer selection dialog.

Open your report in design view. Open the Printer select dialog and set to print
to WinFax then save the report. Next, create a command button on your form that
prints the report. When pushed, the report will not even open. What will open is
WinFax; then just fill in the fax number information and send.

yup.. thats what you need
and you need to add the fax service to the mail profile that you're
going to use with Outlook

and there's a prefix to the fax number (I think it's a '+' sign) that
tell mapi to send it as a fax ... let me do some digging and I'll post
back later

I did get it going.
I found a web page that detailed the adding of the fax transport to the
e-mail accounts of outlook.
I did that a "lo and behold" it worked.

BTW the format of the fax number MUST be +1 (888) 555-1212 (All spaces
and dashes and parenthesis) or it will not invoke the fax transport.

Thanks for your help.
