Using stationary with the DoCmd.SendObject action

Have automated sending an e-mail using the DoCmd.SendObject method, however I need the resulting e-mail to use Stationary and a signature, but cant get this on the mail. Any help would be very much appreciated!

Hmm, not sure how to include any kind of formatting in the example, have defaulted Outlook Express to use the stationary and Signature, but when passing the info from my form the email created is standard with no formatting.

The second link seems to be discussing my problem exactly, but I can make no sense of it! Is it just me? The command I am using is:

    DoCmd.SendObject acSendNoObject, , acFormatHTML, "" & [EMail], , , "ELAS Reply", "" & [Notes], False, "C:\Documents and Settings\andy\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\NSUGBRVL\Stationary.html"

All references to this command I can find do not use the last argument  (templatefile). Im tearing my hair out! please save me from going bald!

Howdo, regarding this

Ive tried all sorts, even using existing stationary (e.g.  "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Stationery\1033\Jungle.htm")
and still no luck, what I found was, the email is always set to Plain Text , even though acFormatHTML was specified

change your False to True to leave the new mail msg window open, and see for yourself

 DoCmd.SendObject acSendNoObject, , acFormatHTML, "" & [EMail], , , "ELAS Reply", "" & [Notes], True, "C:\Documents and Settings\andy\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\NSUGBRVL\Stationary.html"


I had a look at Outlook Automation, but the only way I could see of adding stationary in there was to create the html syntax string and set the property HTMLBody

Sorry guys, kept meaning to reply n then getting distracted! Could not get stationary working in Outlook Express, however the following works with Outlook:


    ' Create the Outlook session.
    Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
   
    ' Create the message.

    Set objOutlookMsg = objOutlook.CreateItem(olMailItem)
   
    With objOutlookMsg
         ' Add the To recipient(s) to the message.
         Set objOutlookRecip = .Recipients.Add("" & [EMail])
         objOutlookRecip.Type = olTo
       
        ' Set the Subject, Body, and Importance of the message.
        'sets an HTML background to the message (STATIONERY)
                   
        .HTMLBody = "<html><head></head><body background=" & Chr(34) & "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Stationery\Stationary.gif" & Chr(34) _
            & " bgcolor=" & Chr(34) & "#C9B49A" & Chr(34) & ">" & [Notes] & "</body></html>"
        .Subject = "Elas Response"
        .Display
        ' Resolve each Recipient's name.
        For Each objOutlookRecip In .Recipients
            objOutlookRecip.Resolve
        Next
     
    End With
    Set objOutlook = Nothing

I attached the code to a button after the user enters the notes, tey populate the subjects of an e-mail, which can then be sent. Still requires user intervention to click the Send button, and if Outlook not open when it is run does some odd things, but works to a fashion....

Thanx for the help

Andy
