How to reply to an open Outlook email from Access

P: 37
Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to figure out how to reply to an open outlook email via an access button, I've been using VBs docmd.sendobject method in the past to start new emails and attach PDFs, but I'm not sure if there's a method to reply to an already open email. If someone could point me in the right direction... santa may visit your house :-)

Thank you for the knowledge

Cheers Eddie

An open email would be one that Outlook had an open Inspector for.

From Access you'd need to acquire an Outlook.Application object that reflected the current session of Outlook, then go through its Inspectors collection to find the email. That should get you started.
