Hi,
I am new at this.  I need to copy text from a Word document, send it to Outlook and have it pasted into the main body of an e-mail (but not as an attachment).  Can anyone help me?

This is some fragments from working application.
File is saved as txt type then retrieved.

FileName = "file_name"
oWordDoc.SaveAs FileName:=FileName, FileFormat:=wdFormatText, LockComments:=False, _
            Password:="", AddToRecentFiles:=False, WritePassword:="", ReadOnlyRecommended:=False, _
            EmbedTrueTypeFonts:=False, SaveNativePictureFormat:=False, SaveFormsData:=False, SaveAsAOCELetter:=False

Open FileName For Binary Access Read As #lngFileNo
        Dim strTemp As String
        strTemp = String(LOF(lngFileNo), " ")
        Get #lngFileNo, , strTemp
        Close #lngFileNo

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

Why not just turn on macro recording and do it your self.  When done turn off the recording and look at the macro to make it do what you really need.

good luck
