I have a macro that uses SendObject to e-mail reports on a monthly basis.  Is there a way to insert the =Date() function or the month part of the date into the Subject line of the SendObject?

Use a variable for your Subject Line

Dim strEmailTO As String
   Dim strEmailCC As String
   Dim strEmailBCC As String
   Dim strSubject1 As String
   Dim strSubject2 As String
   Dim strBodyText As String

'Populate each variable with email addresses or titles
strSubject1 = "This report is for "
strSubject2 = " Date..."


DoCmd.SendObject acSendReport, "Report Name", acFormatRTF, strEmailTO, strEmailCC, strEmailBCC, strSubject1 & " " & Now() & " " & strSubject2 & " ", strBodyText, 0

Use a variable and the format comand:
dim strSubject as string
'If you want just the abbreviated month (Ex: Payables report for: Sep)
strSubject = "Payables report for: " & Format(Now(), "MMM")

'If you want the full month (Ex: Payables report for: September)
strSubject = "Payables report for: " & Format(Now(), "MMMM")
