emailing with winzip with vb50

I would like my users to select a button and on execution it will zip a file attach it to a new e-mail.

I am using winzip 8.1 outlook 98 and vb5.0

Any suggestion on how to achieve this.

Thanks
Steve

Hi!

Here's something for you over the net:

View code...
http://www.planetsourcecode.com/vb/scripts/ShowCodeAsText.asp?txtCodeId=5946&lngWId=1

Description: This code will send email through MS Outlook 98, (or the most current version on your computer), using MS Excel 7.0 or higher.

This will help you to attach and send a mail using outlook.

That's it!

PS. Wait till I get the winzip coding...

Description: this is actually not a code but this is just a list of parameters to use WinZip in VB.. I hope this will help those who are interested in my previous posting namely: "Compressing Files thru VB(w/WinZip)"

That's it!

First, compress the file, wait until the file is generated, then use the 1st link that I posted to send attach and the mail.

To wait, you could do something like:

While Dir("C:\My Folder\GeneratedZipFile.zip") = ""
DoEvents 'Send a pause
Wend

That's it!
