Access or Outlook is placing a single quotes around email addresses I have in a macro in Access.  The problem is that people are not receiving the emails when quotes are around the email address.  How can I get rid of the quotes.

you can eliminate them using the vba Replace function

Replace(vString,chr(39),"")

Hi Capricorn1,
                        Where would I use this function when I am just placing the email addresses in the macro using send output?

you can convert that macro into VBA codes. using VBA codes you will have more flexibility

Tools>Macro>convert macros to visual basic

after the conversion post the converted codes here and we will see where we could insert the Replace function

Why is that happening in the first place?  What does the macro do?

My point is - with that sendobject command, there should not be any single quotes around individual email addresses.

DoCmd.SendObject [objecttype][, objectname][, outputformat][, to][, cc][, bcc][, subject][, messagetext][, editmessage][, templatefile]

It appears there should be nothing between the commas following the [cc].  Try removing the pair of double quotes leaving just two commas.

GRayL:
              You get a compile error if you remove the quotes.

Are you saying a compile error if you remove the empty double quotes between the two commas?

those quotes are required for the email addresses.
your codes looks good and i don't see anything that can cause the single quote to be inserted, the single quote must be generated by Outlook (not sure though)

can you post here the generated email addresses with single quotes.

I solved the problem by creating a outlook rule with recipients email addresses without quotes.
