VB script error #450 in Word

Hello All,
I use this bit of code to send an email by pressing a button on a form in
Excel...
Private Sub Button91_Click()
   'Application.Dialogs(xlDialogSendMail).Show
   ActiveWorkbook.SendMail Recipients:="**********@epcor.ca"
   MsgBox "Your meter read was sent", vbInformation, "****Meter Reads"
But When I try to use the same code in a Word document...
Private Sub Button91_Click()

   ActiveDocument.SendMail Recipients:="************@epcor.ca"
   MsgBox "Your meter read was sent", vbInformation, "*****Meter Reads"
 End Sub

I get an error msg. "Wrong number of arguments or invalid property
assignment (Error 450)"

What am I doing wrong??

Thnx,
Sheldon

Hi
Word SendMail method is different then excel's one - it intend not for sending email but for showing send mail dialog, so it doesn't accept arguments:
'====Excell help=====
SendMail method....
Sends the workbook by using the installed mail system
'====Word help=====
SendMail method....
Opens a message window for sending the specified document through Microsoft Exchange.
