VBA Array to Lotus Notes email Looping Problem

P: n/a
Hello! I hope there is someone out there who can shed some light on
this for me. I have a module that is supposed to look at an access
table, pull out each bid record, link to another table to find all of
the people to send the email to and link to one more table to find who
should be cc'd on the note.

All of this works fine, except.... The arrays for the To and CC seem
to exclude names from the list if there are multiple recipients and I
can't pinpoint what I have done incorrectly. I am fairly new to arrays
and have never sent an email through Lotus Notes until this script so
please forgive some of my coding.

Here is the code I am using and I greatly appreciate any help.

Thanks in advance,

Dim rs As DAO.Recordset
Dim rsTo As DAO.Recordset
Dim rsCC As DAO.Recordset

It does not appear you are using the Notes Domino object model for
passing your email. Using the Domino Library you can use this code in
an Access module. The Domino object model will read an array
internally, you don't have to do any looping, just pass the array

Sub SendNotesMail(p_SendTo() As String, p_Subject As String, p_Body As
String, p_Path() As String, p_NotesPassword As String)
Dim n_Session As New NotesSession
Dim n_dir As NotesDbDirectory
Dim n_db As NotesDatabase
Dim n_doc As NotesDocument
Dim n_object As NotesEmbeddedObject
Dim n_rtitem As NotesRichTextItem
Dim i As Integer
Call n_Session.Initialize(p_NotesPassword)

Set n_dir = n_Session.GetDbDirectory("")
Set n_db = n_dir.OpenMailDatabase
Set n_doc = n_db.CreateDocument
Call n_doc.AppendItemValue("Form", "Memo")

Call n_doc.AppendItemValue("SendTo", p_SendTo())
Call n_doc.AppendItemValue("Subject", p_Subject)

Set n_rtitem = n_doc.CreateRichTextItem("Body")
n_rtitem.AppendText (p_Body & vbCrLf & vbCrLf)
For i = 0 To UBound(p_Path)
Set n_object = n_rtitem.EmbedObject(EMBED_ATTACHMENT, "", p_Path(i))
Next i
n_doc.SaveMessageOnSend = True
Call n_doc.Send(False)

Set n_db = Nothing
Set n_Session = Nothing
MsgBox "Email has been sent"
End Sub
the array p_SendTo() can take any email name or group name. Just pass
it to the routine. This routine also does attachments.
