Using Word 97 I would like to be able to email a document (with a button or macro within the document) to a person in my Outlook 98 address book.  It may be a different person each time, so I would have to have some way to select.  Is it possible?  If so, I will up the points for the correct answer.

add a macro from word and the outlook reference.
the code for the email should look like this.
because you use word 97 you have to save the document to attach it.  the display at the bottom shows the email... you can then go and select your "TO:".  If you want to code in a email address... add the
itmmail.recipients.add (emailaddress)
or subject.
itmmail.subject = "MY SUBJECT"
or body
itmmail.body = "MY TEXT HERE."
to automatically send, change the itmmail.display to itmmail.send

sub sendit()
activedocument.saveas "c:\mailit.doc"
set olapp = new outlook.application
set itmmail = olapp.createitem(olmailitem)
set att = itmmail.attachments
att.add "c:\mailit.doc"
itmmail.display
set olapp = nothing
set itmmail = nothing
end sub

The line set olapp=new outlook.application produced the folloing.  Compile Error  user-defined type not defined.

Will it matter if I already have outlook open?

All I have is the MS Outlook 8.0 Object Model.  Is that the same thing?

Do you have Word open with the document loaded when you want to do this?  If so why not use Word's Send To menu option (File--> Send To--> Mail Recipient

good luck

It is the same thing.... The File--> Send To--> Mail Recipient is only for Office 2K products.

I stand corrected.... Mimcc, is that some plug-in or SP that gives you that added functionality?  If so, it's easy to upgrade.

I don't think it is a plug-in.  It may be in SP1 or SP2.  We have a standard load on our LAN.  On my standalone development machine, I loaded MS Office with SP2 and have the ability to send files.

good luck
