Emailing From Outlook | Microsoft Access Sample Code

Function for Emailing From Outlook

A common request from Access users is to send emails from within your Access Application. Access has some very easy ways of doing this, including a built in SendObject function that works nicely in simple situations. However, if you find yourself with more complex needs, such as attaching files, you will need a different solution, such as Outlook Automation. Outlook Automation allows you to interact directly with the Outlook object from within your Access code. This tool provides you some very valuable features that the built in Access functions do not provide. This Microsoft Access function will allow you to send an email from within your Access program using Microsoft Outlook as the mail client and the delivery by way of Outlook Automation.
