Repetitive Task

Hello Experts,

I have a form that I use to email many reports to the same group of people. Currently I use:


Dim toMailRecipient, ccMailRecipient As String

Let toMailRecipient = "ManyEmails@Removed.com"
   
Let ccMailRecipient = "AFewEmails@Removed.com"
   
Each time that I need to update the email list I have to change in in many places.

I want to know a way to use one email list for toMailRecipient & one list for ccMailRecipient and reference it so that I only have to make one update.

Please be very detailed in your response.

All I did was add a loop for grabbing addresses from address table. I didn't check any of your other code. You're going to have problems with Outlook Security; search for ClickYes for simple fix.

I have examples of emailing but I only use CDO to get around the Outlook security which won't help you. I maintain a table of email addresses in Access or SQL Server; only one place to add, change or delete email addresses.

Jim,

So if created a table say tblEmailAddress two fields say toEmailAddress & ccEmailAddress how could I reference that.

What would the code be? Also I would need to add the separator (;) between each address.

I have pasted the code I am currently using so that you can understand what I am doing.

Private Sub cmdSendEmail_Click()
    'On Error Resume Next
    Dim toMailRecipient, ccMailRecipient As String
    Dim fso As New FileSystemObject
    Dim fold As Folder
    Dim f As File
    Dim appOutLook As Outlook.Application
    Dim MailOutLook As Outlook.MailItem
    Dim dteToday As Date
    dteToday = Date
   
    Let toMailRecipient = "emails@removed.com"
   
    Let ccMailRecipient = "emails@removed.com"
   
   
   
    Set fold = fso.GetFolder("C:\Documents and Settings\pardoe2\My Documents\PMO\Reports\Blank Solution Tabs\")
    Set appOutLook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    Set MailOutLook = appOutLook.CreateItem(olMailItem)
   
   
 
   
            With MailOutLook
            .To = toMailRecipient
            .CC = ccMailRecipient
            .Subject = "Blank Solution Tab in Remedy..."
            .HTMLBody = "Package Managers,<br><br>Attached is a listing of all the Resolved/Closed" & _
             " tickets so far for the current month that have blank solution tabs. Review these" & _
             " and have the teams make the corrections in Remedy. Thanks!<br><br>"
                For Each f In fold.Files
                    .Attachments.Add f.Path
                Next
            .Send
        End With
   
    Set fold = Nothing
    Set fso = Nothing
     
    Me.lblSolutionSent.Visible = True
    Me.cmdMinimize.SetFocus
    Me.cmdSendEmail.Visible = False
    Me.cmdSendAllEmail.Visible = False
    MsgBox "The Blank Solution Tab Report Has Been Emailed. "
   
 

End Sub

Jim,

Works like a champ! Here is what I did based upon your suggestion:

Dim strTo As String
    Dim strCC As String
    Dim db As DAO.Database
    Dim rs As DAO.Recordset
   
    strTo = ""
    strCC = ""
   
    Set db = CurrentDb
    Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("SELECT toEmailAddress FROM tblEmailAddress;")
   
        rs.MoveFirst
        Do While Not rs.EOF
   
         strTo = strTo + rs!toEmailAddress
        rs.MoveNext
        Loop
    toMailRecipient = strTo
    Set rs = Nothing
    Set db = Nothing
   
    Set db = CurrentDb
    Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("SELECT ccEmailAddress FROM tblEmailAddress;")
   
        rs.MoveFirst
        Do While Not rs.EOF
   
         strCC = strTo + rs!ccEmailAddress
        rs.MoveNext
        Loop
    ccMailRecipient = strCC
    Set rs = Nothing
    Set db = Nothing
