Having a problem with SendObject...

When I use the following:

SendObject([ObjectType as acSendObjectType=acSendNoObject], [ObjectName], [OutputFormat], [To], [Cc], [Bcc], [Subject], [Messagetext], [EditMessage], [TemplateFile])

I get an error when code gets to [OutputFormat]. If I use "html" things work fine. I would like to use snapshot or "rtf". When I use anything other than "html" I get an error saying:

The formats that enables you to output data as a Microsoft Excel, rich-text format, MS-DOS text or HTML are missing from Windows Registry.

The weird part is if I leave the [outputformat] out of the code, when run it will pop up a box asking which format to use. I can pick anyone and it works fine.

Any suggestions on whats happening? Also how can I get this to complete the SEND automatically. I can get it to do everything in "html" format but box comes up and I have to hit SEND. Can't find anything to make it complete on its own.
Thanks,

Bill Neuman

It sounds like you may need to reinstall Microsoft Office.

Thanks!

The formats are

"HTML"
"Microsoft Excel"
"MS-DOS Text"
"Rich Text Format"
"Snapshot Format"

As for sending without hitting send i'll check up more on that.

And no!! don't reinstall office, its simply a glitch! If you type in "Snapshot" and not "Snapshot Format" it gives you the error you described.

Great news!

SendObject([ObjectType as acSendObjectType=acSendNoObject], [ObjectName], [OutputFormat], [To], [Cc],
[Bcc], [Subject], [Messagetext], [EditMessage], [TemplateFile])


if you have editmessage = 0 then you don't have to press send!!!

PLEASE use FALSE instead of 0.  Constants are there for a reason.

Anyway, are you sending an object or are you sending a blank message?  A blank message shoudn't prompt you for an output format.

procyn00,

I had used FALSE before but didn't work. I had it in the wrong spot. It now works! 1 problem down and 1 to go. This is on my work computer and it maybe a bad install. IT has control of the computers. I'll send the database to my home and try it out tonight.

wesleystewart - I'm sending this as an Object.

"I'm sending this as an Object"

What object are you sending?  Sorry if I don't get it, but you are either sending a form, module, table, query, report, OR you are simply sending a message with no object attached.
