Email automation problem

I am trying to automate a command button in a user form to send two reports in the On Click event.  The first report is a txt file created by other software that will write a text file to My Documents.  The second report is an Access report created when the user inputs some data.  I am getting a compile error "Expected End Sub" when I run this event.

Private Sub cmdTest_Click()
    Sub SendMessage(DisplayMsg As Boolean, Optional AttachmentPath)
          Dim objOutlook As Outlook.Application
          Dim objOutlookMsg As Outlook.MailItem
          Dim objOutlookRecip As Outlook.Recipient
          Dim objOutlookAttach As Outlook.Attachment

          ' 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("Alan D")
              objOutlookRecip.Type = olTo

             ' Set the Subject, Body, and Importance of the message.
             .Subject = "This is an Automation test with Microsoft Outlook"
             .Body = "This is the body of the message." & vbCrLf & vbCrLf
             .Importance = olImportanceHigh  'High importance

             ' Add attachments to the message.
             If Not IsMissing(AttachmentPath) Then
                 Set objOutlookAttach = .Attachments.Add("C:\MyDocuments\EmailAutomationCodeX.txt")
                 Set objOutlookAttach = .Attachments.Add("C:\mdb\Report")
             End If

             ' Resolve each Recipient's name.
             For Each objOutlookRecip In .Recipients
                 objOutlookRecip.Resolve
             Next

             ' Should we display the message before sending?
             If DisplayMsg Then
                 .Display
             Else
                 .Save
                 .Send
             End If
          End With
          Set objOutlook = Nothing
      End Sub
End Sub
