creating email attachments

P: n/a

I got some code from to
send emails atomatically from access. It works but does not attach anything
to the email

I am trying to email the report "RP_NC Form" when I clic a button.. What s
wrong in the following code?:

Private Sub Command231_Click()
'Set up the objects required for Automation into lotus notes
Dim Maildb As Object 'The mail database
Dim UserName As String 'The current users notes name
Dim MailDbName As String 'THe current users notes mail database name
Dim MailDoc As Object 'The mail document itself
Dim AttachME As Object 'The attachment snapshotfile object
Dim Session As Object 'The notes session
Dim EmbedObj As Object 'The embedded object (Attachment)
Dim recip(25) As Variant
recip(0) = "em****"
recip(1) = "em****"
'Start a session to notes
Set Session = CreateObject("Notes.NotesSession")
'Get the sessions username and then calculate the mail file name
'You may or may not need this as for MailDBname with some systems you
'can pass an empty string
UserName = Session.UserName
MailDbName = Left$(UserName, 1) & Right$(UserName, (Len(UserName) - InStr
(1, UserName, " "))) & ".nsf"
'Open the mail database in notes
Set Maildb = Session.GETDATABASE("", MailDbName)
If Maildb.ISOPEN = True Then
'Already open for mail
End If
'Set up the new mail document
MailDoc.Form = "Memo"
MailDoc.sendto = recip
MailDoc.Subject = Subject
MailDoc.Body = BodyText
'Set up the embedded object and attachment and attach it
If Attachment <> "" Then
Set EmbedObj = AttachME.EMBEDOBJECT(1454, "", Attachment, "RP_NC Form")

End If
'Send the document
MailDoc.SEND 0, recip
'Clean Up
Set Maildb = Nothing
Set MailDoc = Nothing
Set AttachME = Nothing
Set Session = Nothing
Set EmbedObj = Nothing
End Sub
