Hi.

I can send mail using the SendObject Method, but I cannot send mail in an html format. Can someone tell me what I'm missing? Thanks. Here is my code.  I want to do this because I want to insert a long hyperlink that gets truncated if I send it in regular text. (unless there is a way to continue a hyperlink.) I'm sending to outlook. Thanks.!

    Dim strToWhom As String
    Dim strMsgBody As String
    Dim strMsgSubject As String
   
    strToWhom = "vern@mydomain.com"
    strMsgSubject = "Confirmation"
    strMsgBody = "<HTML><HEAD><TITLE></TITLE></HEAD><BODY><FONT face=Arial size=2><STRONG>" & vbCrLf
    strMsgBody = strMsgBody & "Thank You for using our service!<BR><BR>" & vbCrLf
    strMsgBody = strMsgBody & "Vern<BR>80 Main St<BR>Somewhere, TXC 11111<BR>V. 111.111.2222<BR>F.333.4444.4444" & vbCrLf
    strMsgBody = strMsgBody & "</STRONG></FONT></BODY></HTML>" & vbCrLf
   
    DoCmd.SendObject , acSendNoObject, acFormatHTML, strToWhom, , , strMsgSubject, strMsgBody, True
 
THANKS.

What version of Access are you using?  MS Access 2000 does not allow you to send in HTML, only text.  However, 2002 does have the ability to send in HTML format.

Hi.

Thanks for the reply. I am using access 2000. Is the alternative (in code) to create a one page report, convert it to html and attach it using sendobject?

Thanks
