I am writing some code that exports a table to a .csv file and need to be able to email the .csv file. I have the code to email from VBA but i havnt a clue how to add an attachment. Does anyone know how to do this?

Here is the code i have so far and the code which i thought it was to add the attachments

Dim OLAPP As Object
    Dim OLMMM As Object
    Set OLAPP = CreateObject("outlook.Application")
    Set OLMMM = OLAPP.createitem(0)

   
    With OLMMM
    .subject = "Stompin Export"
    .To = "blah@blah.net"
    .Body = "Netsound's Stompin Records Export (.CSV)"
    .attachments.Add (Forms!export.export)
    End With

If MsgBox("Do you wish to preview the email before sending?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo, "Preview?") = vbYes Then
    OLMMM.display
   
    Else
   
    With OLMMM
    .send
    End With
                       
          End If

Hi,

I'd think you should debug the string returned by Forms!export.export.

My slight mod of your code worked fine below when I attached a file with the pathname C:\test\temp.csv

Cheers

Dave

Sub Mail()
    Dim OLAPP As Object, OLMMM As Object
    Set OLAPP = CreateObject("outlook.Application")
    Set OLMMM = OLAPP.createitem(olMailItem)

    With OLMMM
        .Subject = "Stompin Export"
        .To = "blah@blah.net"
        .Body = "Netsound's Stompin Records Export (.CSV)"
        .Attachments.Add ("C:\test\temp.csv")
    End With

    If MsgBox("Do you wish to preview the email before sending?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo, "Preview?") = vbYes Then
        OLMMM.display
    Else
        OLMMM.send
    End If
End Sub

I declared a string and passed the field into the string instead. I dont understand why it didn't work before??

Here is the code i used in case anyone wants to do this in future

Code:

    Dim StrPath As String
    Dim OLAPP As Object, OLMMM As Object
    Set OLAPP = CreateObject("outlook.Application")
    Set OLMMM = OLAPP.createitem(0)
    StrPath = Forms!export.export

    With OLMMM
        .Subject = "Stompin Export"
        .To = "blah@blah.net"
        .Body = "Netsound's Stompin Records Export (.CSV)"
        .Attachments.Add (StrPath)
    End With

    If MsgBox("Do you wish to preview the email before sending?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo, "Preview?") = vbYes Then
        OLMMM.display
    Else
        OLMMM.send
    End If
