Send Object Method from Table Field

I have an Access Database that has a main table and a form that users use to enter data into the main table. There is also a second table that contains customer names. The first control on the form is a combo box that is bound to the customer field in the second table so users can select uniform spellings for customer names that will write to the main table also. This second table contains another field besides the customer name which is the customer's email address. The db also has a report that is based on the main table. What I want to do is to use the SendObject method to email the report to the customer for his specific record by using the customer's email address in the second table. I want the user to be able to avoid having to type in the customer's email address for each report sent out by using the email address in the second table. Is this possible? If so, how would I do it? It seems that the To: attribute in the SendObject method does not recognize any table or field reference.

Ennistymon,

Here you go.

Study it carefully.
I am sure you can adapt this to work in your database.

Jeff, thank you for your thorough answer to my question. The user will send the email after each record is entered. What kind of changes to the code would be needed to accomplish this?

Jeff,
I am continuing to study and work with your solution particularly the last update which I believe will ultimately solve my problem. My limited knowledge of VBA and SQL are making this task daunting and time consuming, but I believe I am now on the right track with your help. Thanks for your help.

Do a search on Amazon for good Access and SQL reference books.

Good Luck!
