Hi Folks!

I need to add a function to a Data Access Page form so that when the record is saved to the database, an email will automatically be sent to a pre-determined address.

I have been trying to attach the following code to the onclick event of the submit button:

DoCmd.SendObject acSendDataAccessPage, , acFormatDAP, To, , , _
"New Form Record", , 0

It doesn't appear to be working for me.

Please can someone tell me how I can accomplish this task, using this method or another I'm not aware of?
