How do I create a Bcc list using CDO

I have tried using the solution to the earlier question but I get a compiler error: Method or data member not found.   Can anyone help.
I would also like some advice on what to put in the recipient, as I don't really want one.
Code snippet attached
Thanks in advance.
Private Sub SendEmail(pRecipient)
    Dim myserver As clsAESeMailServer
    Dim mymsg As clsAESeMailMsg
    Set myserver = New clsAESeMailServer
    Set mymsg = New clsAESeMailMsg
    myserver.ServerAddress = Me!From.Column(0)
    myserver.AccountName = Me!From.Column(1)
    myserver.Password = Me!From.Column(2)
    Set mymsg.MailServer = myserver
    mymsg.From = Me!From.Column(1)
    mymsg.Recipient = pRecipient
    mymsg.Subject = CStr(Me!Subject)
    mymsg.BCC = CreateBCCList
End Sub

I'm reached what I can help with, but have asked for more experts to assist...

First of all, I presume you are storing your BCC recipients to CreateBCCList somewhere else in your code? Are you making sure your recipients are separated by semi-colons, and not by a combination of commas and spaces (which is the usual convention on, say, websites, etc)?

The only other thing I can think of is that it should be mymsg.Bcc = CreateBCCList - in other words, the cc part is lower case.


your string should look like this:;;
NOT like this:,,

The problem is that I don't get anywhere near constructing the string.  The code won't compile as it doesn't like lower case BCC and it converts to upper case automatically.

Can you show us that part of your code?
Clive BeatonAccess DeveloperAuthor Commented:
Yes, it's a code snippet attached to the original question, shown above.
I don't see anything in there where you are creating your "CreateBCCList" list, though, the one that contains the email addresses you are BCCing to.
Clive BeatonAccess DeveloperAuthor Commented:
CreateBCCList is a function that creates and passes a string of the email address to be put in the Bcc field.  I didn't include it, as the problem is the code in the snippet doesn't compile.  It gives an error: 'Method or data member not found' and hightlights BCC in the line 'mymsg.BCC = CreateBCCList

Right, but I am wondering if that's the part that's failing, but the compiler doesn't know it until it hits that line and has an uninitialized variable.
Clive BeatonAccess DeveloperAuthor Commented:
I just tried that.  It doesn't get to the line.   The error appers with .BCC highlighted and the code stopped at the top of the sub on the line: Private Sub Private Sub SendEmail(pRecipient)


Are you using aesmike's sample posted here?

Also, are you using Access VBA or Visual Basic?

clsAESeMailMsg is a class that he has written himself. You can find it by searching the project for the string "clsAESeMailMsg".

<'Method or data member not found'>
You are getting this error message because the class that Mike has written (clsAESeMailMsg) does not contain BCC as an option.

This is another way to use CDO that I posted in a seperate thread:

Call the function like this-
CDOSendEmail "", "", "", "Interesting subject", "Totally Brilliant Message"

Function CDOSendEmail(varFrom As Variant, strTo As String, strBCC As String, strSubj As String, strMess As String)
    Dim strDefaultFrom  As String
    Dim objMess As Object
    Set objMess = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
    ' This is your default FROM address, and to be used if varFrom is Null or Empty
    strDefaultFrom = ""
    ' Subject
    objMess.Subject = strSubj
    ' Message
    objMess.textbody = strMess
    ' Determine if varFrom is Null/Empty and use default address,
    ' otherwise use the From address passed through the function call
    objMess.From = IIf(Nz(varFrom, "") = "", strDefaultFrom, varFrom)
    ' To
    objMess.To = strTo
    ' BCC
    objMess.bcc = strBCC
    ' This is a simple example... you can do a lot more
    ' Send it
    ' Clear the object variable
    Set objMess = Nothing
End Function

lherou.  Thanks for trying.  Much appreciated.

Mbizsetup.  Yes, I'm using aesmike's sample with Access VBA.  I'll try your code and get back to you.  Thank you very much.
Clive BeatonAccess DeveloperAuthor Commented:
It compiled and ran through the code but didn't seem to do anything.  Is the code completely self contained?  Should I somehow specify the server, username, and password, etc.?

The code I posted will send an Email from your default email account, but I haven't included any messages that indicate that the message was sent.
If you open your Sent Items folder, you should see your test message.
Let me know if this is what you needed...

Thanks, guys.  It got beyond me but I appreciate the effort you put in.
