Sending individual emails from MSAccess

Hello Experts,

I am trying to send out individual emails to each store letting them know what time the shipment will arrive, using Microsoft Access 2003
Table name is "DelNotification". Fields are "StoreNo", "StartTime", "EndTime", "ShipDate".
Email address will be the 4 digit StoreNo and _store@domain.com
example: if StoreNo is 1234, email address is 1234_store@domain.com

the body of the letter will include the StartTime, EndTime and ShipDate. these are the only fields that vary.
and each store will have a different delivery time, that is why it will send out different information for every email.

All the fields will be entered from a form, and user will push a button and it will send the email to all stores.
Hope this makes sense... any help would be greatly appreciated

This should get you started.



Dim mySQL as String
Dim myRST as ADODB.Recordset
Dim myEmail as String
Dim myStore as String, myStart as String, myEnd as String, myShip as String
 
 
mySQL = "SELECT [StoreNo], [StartTime], [EndTime], [ShipDate] FROM [DelNotification]"
        Set myRST = New ADODB.Recordset
        myRST.Open mySQL, CurrentProject.Connection
            Do While Not myRST.EOF
 
myEmail = myRST.field("StoreNo") & "@domain.com"
myStore = myRST.field("StoreNo")
myStart  = myRST.field("Start Time")
'etc
 
'now build mail
docmd.SendObject acNoObject  'amend as necessary
 
  myRST.MoveNext
 Loop
myRST.Close
Set myRST = Nothing

Hello Danny,

sorry, forgot to mention that I have always created my queries from design view.
where do I put this code?

Create a form.
Add a command button.
open properties on the command button and select the On_Click event.

would I be able to do this from a Macro??
I tried using the SendObject but it came up as an attachment instead of the body of the letter.
If anyone can show me how to modify this so it will come up as the body of the letter, I think I could work around it.

Danny, I did try using the code you provided, but could not make heads or tails with it. I am not a programmer and do not understand how to modify it.
I got this error when I ran the code
"item cannot be found in the collection corresponding to the requested name or ordinal"

This should work as is.
If you create a module and paste this in.

Then you can use a macro to runCommand on  SendEmails()

That should do you
Public Function SendEmails()
Dim mySQL As String
Dim myRST As ADODB.Recordset
Dim myEmail As String
Dim myStore As String, myStart As String, myEnd As String, myShip As String, myMessage As String
 
 
mySQL = "SELECT [StoreNo], [StartTime], [EndTime], [ShipDate] FROM [DelNotification]"
        Set myRST = New ADODB.Recordset
        myRST.Open mySQL, CurrentProject.Connection
            Do While Not myRST.EOF
 
myEmail = myRST.Fields("StoreNo") & "@domain.com"
myStore = myRST.Fields("StoreNo")
myStart = myRST.Fields("StartTime")
myEnd = myRST.Fields("EndTime")
myShip = myRST.Fields("ShipDate")
 
'build message
myMessage = "Store: " & myStore & vbCrLf
myMessage = myMessage & "Start Time: " & myStart & vbCrLf
myMessage = myMessage & "End Time: " & myEnd & vbCrLf
myMessage = myMessage & "Ship Date: " & myShip & vbCrLf
 
'now build mail
DoCmd.SendObject acSendNoObject, , acFormatRTF, myEmail, , , "Email Subject here", myMessage, False
 
 
  myRST.MoveNext
 Loop
myRST.Close
Set myRST = Nothing
End Function

I am getting a
runtime error 3265.
"item cannot be found in the collection corresponding to the requested name or ordinal"
followed by end or debug.
when I click on debug,
myEmail = myRST.Fields("test@domain.com") is highlighted

That isn't in my code....

The line says:

myEmail = myRST.Fields("StoreNo") & "@domain.com"


StoreNo is the name of your field in your table.

Oh, you're right. I changed it for testing, not realizing it would mess up the code.
works great. Thanks

Danny,
I did not test it out completely.
If I put 3 lines on my table, the first email is good.
but the 2nd email has 2 messages, the second one appends to the first one.
and the 3rd email has 3 messages.

is the code missing something to reset? or did I mess something up?
