Sample code to send winfax from access

Posted on 2006-10-30
Last Modified: 2008-02-01
I am looking for some sample code to be able to send reports out by using winfax.  Currently Winfax is the only program that we have to send faxes out.  I am looking for a way to automate it.  Currently we only use MSAccess for our database.

Function TestFax()

Dim objWinFaxSend As Object
Dim strDate As String
Dim strTime As String
Dim strSetTo As String
Dim intCust As Integer
Dim intCounter As Long

intCust = 0

strSetTo = "My Customer Name"
strDate = Format(DATE , "mm/dd/yy")
strTime = Format(Now(), "hh:mm:ss")

Do While intCust < 3

Set objWinFaxSend = CreateObject("Winfax.SDKSend")
objWinFaxSend.SetSubject ("Test Fax")
objWinFaxSend.SetNumber ("1234567")
objWinFaxSend.SetAreaCode ("713")
objWinFaxSend.SetTo (strSetTo)
objWinFaxSend.SetDate (strDate)
objWinFaxSend.SetTime (strTime)
objWinFaxSend.SetCompany ("Commercial Chemical")
objWinFaxSend.SetPrintFromApp (1)
objWinFaxSend.Send (1)
objWinFaxSend.ShowSendScreen (0)

    Do While objWinFaxSend.IsReadyToPrint = 0

DoCmd.OpenReport "MyReport", acViewNormal

intCust = intCust + 1


    Do While objWinFaxSend.IsEntryIDReady(0) <> 1

Set objWinFaxSend = Nothing


End Function
