I have a Microsoft Word form in a template and I created a button so they can submit the form via e-mail when they are done filling it out, but I'm not sure how to automatically populate the CC: Field and the Subject: Field of the e-mail.

I'm using this code which opens up an e-mail message with the document as an attachment.  How can I add text for the CC's and the subject?:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Options.SendMailAttach = True
ActiveDocument.SendMail
End Sub

try this matey

this will show how to user the other fields you want to complete

Option Explicit

Private Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias _
"ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation _
As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters _
As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, _
ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long

Private Const SW_SHOW = 5

Public Function OpenEmail(ByVal EmailAddress As String, _
    Optional Subject As String, Optional Body As String) _
    As Boolean

    Dim lWindow As Long
    Dim lRet As Long
    Dim sParams As String
   
    sParams = EmailAddress
    If LCase(Left(sParams, 7)) <> "mailto:" Then _
        sParams = "mailto:" & sParams
 
 If Subject <> "" Then sParams = sParams & "?subject=" & Subject
       
    If Body <> "" Then
        sParams = sParams & IIf(Subject = "", "?", "&")
        sParams = sParams & "body=" & Body
    End If

   lRet = ShellExecute(lWindow, "open", sParams, _
    vbNullString, vbNullString, SW_SHOW)
   
   OpenEmail = lRet = 0

End Function

Isn't there an easier way to do this like

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Options.SendMailAttach = True
ActiveDocument.SendMail(,"thocutt@yahoo.com","Travel Arrangements", , )
End Sub

I always want the subject and CC to be the same.  Does is have to be a boatload of code, or can it be simple like above?

' create a session object and open session
    Set oSess = GetObject(, "mapi.Session")
    If oSess Is Nothing Then Set oSess = GetObject("", "mapi.Session")
    oSess.Logon profileName:="email_userid"

' then you can manipulate with the message before sending
Set oMess = oSess.Outbox.Messages.Add
        Set oRec = oMess.Recipients.Add
        oRec.Name ="email_address"
        oRec.Resolve
        oMess.Subject ="subject"
        oMess.Text = strTemp
        oMess.DeliveryReceipt = False
        oMess.Update
        oMess.Send SaveCopy:=False, ShowDialog:=False

Good Luck,
