sendobject in runtime

I am trying to use sendobject to convert a report to a text file then email it. It works fine until I make it runtime. Here is a line of code I am using.
If (PrintByNameOG = 1) Then
        DoCmd.SendObject acReport, "BDPatient ListByMonth", "MS-DOSText(*.txt)", "", "", "", "", "", False, ""

Any suggestions?

Will probably work better for you.  Leaving arguments out so that the default takes place is not the same as entering an empty string.

Plus, "MS-DOSText(*.txt)" is a file NAME, not a file FORMAT.

Hope that helps!
