Send email attachment using VB?

Hi. I have a piece of code that sends an email via Outlook:

Private Sub SendEmail(strProblem)

On Error GoTo errEmail

Dim objSession      As Object
Dim objMessage      As Object
Dim objRecipient    As Object
Dim strProblemFull  As String
Dim nRow            As Integer
Dim strProfileInfo  As String
Dim strMailbox      As String
Dim sSubject        As String
Dim objMsg          As Object
Dim sFrom           As String

   
   For nRow = 1 To nEmails
       
        sTemp = ""
        ' get list of emails for the report type and group
        lRet = GetPrivateProfileString("Email", "Subject", "", sTemp, Len(sTemp), sINI)
        'Set the properties of the message object
        sSubject = Replace(Trim$(sTemp), Chr(0), "")
       
        sTemp = ""
        ' get list of emails for the report type and group
        lRet = GetPrivateProfileString("Email", "from", "", sTemp, Len(sTemp), sINI)
        'Set the properties of the message object
        sFrom = Replace(Trim$(sTemp), Chr(0), "")
       
        sTemp = ""
        ' get list of emails for the report type and group
        lRet = GetPrivateProfileString("Email", "To" & CStr(nRow), "", sTemp, Len(sTemp), sINI)
       
        Set objMsg = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
        objMsg.From = sFrom
        objMsg.To = Replace(Trim$(sTemp), Chr(0), "")
        objMsg.Subject = sSubject
        objMsg.TextBody = strProblem
        objMsg.Configuration.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") = "abzexmb1"
        objMsg.Configuration.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2
        objMsg.Configuration.Fields.Update
        objMsg.Send
        Set objMsg = Nothing

    Next
       
     
Exit Sub

The details for the email (to, from etc) are held in an ini file:
[email]

noofEmails=1
frequency=7
subject=
from=
to1=

This works fine but I want to be able to send an attachment along with the email (access db). Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks.
