Working on some code to send a tracer after doing some basci evaluations. I have used this in other areas but I get an instant type mismatch error, can't even get to see anything in debugger. I have Option Declare set. What do I have wrong in this case.
Sub Click(Source As Button)
	Dim ws As New NotesUIWorkspace
	Dim uidoc As NotesUIDocument
	Dim email As New NotesDatabase("", "")
	Dim doc As NotesDocument, memo As NotesDocument
	Dim body As NotesRichTextItem
	Set uidoc = ws.CurrentDocument
	If (uidoc.EditMode) Then Call uidoc.Save
	Set doc = uidoc.Document
	uidoc.EditMode = True
	If doc.am_init_approved(0) = "y" And doc.am_init_flag(0) <> "done" Then 
		Set memo = email.CreateDocument
		memo.Form = "Memo"
		memo.Subject = "Congratulations! You are now a " & doc.GetItemValue("title_vis")(0) & "."
		memo.Remark = "I am pleased to announce you have now been approved as a " & doc.GetItemValue("title_vis")(0) 
		memo.SendTo = "Field Technology"
		memo.CopyTo = "Field Technology"
	        ' add a body and a doc link
		Set body = memo.CreateRichTextItem("Body")
		Call body.AppendDocLink(doc, "", "")
		Call uidoc.FieldSetText("am_init_flag", "done")
		Call uidoc.Save
	       ' send the memo and close the form
		Call memo.Send(False)
		Call uidoc.Close(True)
	End If
End Sub

Not sure why you're getting a type mismatch.  I don't see any type errors here.

The only thing I notice is that you don't open the email database before calling CreateDocument.

Try adding this line before line #12:

    Call email.OpenMail

I actually took that out, I thought it might have been causing the issue. I will put it back in to see if maybe I fixed it somewhere else.

Maybe the error is caused by the uidoc.Save?  Is there any code in that form's QuerySave or PostSave events?

Well adding that back in now has it working. One final issue is the body of the memo is not carrying over, only the doclink. Have not used the memo type that often, how do I get the body of the message to carry to the email? I tried moving it down after the body has been set. No luck.
If doc.am_init_approved(0) = "y" And doc.am_init_flag(0) <> "done" Then 
		Call email.OpenMail		
		Set memo = email.CreateDocument
		memo.Form = "Memo"
		memo.Subject = "Congratulations! You are now a " & doc.GetItemValue("title_vis")(0) & "."
		memo.SendTo = "Field Technology"
		memo.CopyTo = "Field Technology"
	        ' add a body and a doc link
		Set body = memo.CreateRichTextItem("Body")
		Call body.AppendDocLink(doc, "", "")
		memo.body = "I am pleased to announce you have now been approved as a " & doc.GetItemValue("title_vis")(0)
		Call uidoc.FieldSetText("am_init_flag", "done")
		Call uidoc.Save
	       ' send the memo and close the form
		Call memo.Send(False)
		Call uidoc.Close(True)
	End If

There are three ways to set the body of an email: Plain Text, RichText, and MIME.  These three types are independent, and cannot be mixed.  You have mixed plain text and RichText in the same script.

Line 9 creates a new RichText item in the memo.  This allows you to add doc-links and formatted text.

But, by setting memo.body to a string in line 11, you are forcing the body to be plain text.  The RichText operations that precede this line are over-written with the contents of the string.

The bottom line here is to continue using the RichText methods to add text to your RichText item.  In this case, simply replace line 11 with this:

    Call body.AppendText("I am pleased to announce you have now been approved as a " & doc.GetItemValue("title_vis")(0))
