I am trying to get an open Word document, select all of the text and copy it into an email I am creating using VBA in Access.

The code I am using gets the text and puts it into the email, however I loose the formatting.

I can not find a way to simply cut and paste the text from the Word document to the body of the email.

Please note that I am pretty new at using VBA.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.



'Set Body of Email
'Open Outlook and create new email
Set outApp = New Outlook.Application
Set outMail = outApp.CreateItem(olMailItem)
With outMail
    .To = strEmail
    .Subject = "Brokerage for " & strQtr & " - " & strClient
    .Body = wrdApp.Selection
End With
