Best Way To Fax From Access 2000

I am writing an application in Access 2000, and would like to know the best way to fax from the Access database to some end-user's fax machine.  I've been looking at the SendObject command, but haven't got it working yet.

Incidently, my client does not want to utilize Win Fax because his application runs on a network and he says that Win Fax doesn't work for him on the network.

Any help, and/or code snippets would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

If microsoft fax is installed, you could try this

DoCmd.SendObject acReport,"Reportname",acFormatRTF, _
                 "[fax: " & [TABLENAME]![FAXFIELD] & "]", , , , , False
