You can add call to this sub before calling SendMessageOA:
Dim oOutlook As Object
Dim oNameSpace As Object
Dim oInbox As Object

Set oOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set oNameSpace = oOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI")
Set oInbox = oNameSpace.Folders(1)
    'Handle errors
     Err.Clear 'JIC
     On Error Resume Next
    AppActivate ("Outlook")
    If Err <> 0 Then oInbox.Display
    On Error GoTo 0
    Set oInbox = Nothing
    Set oOutlook = Nothing
    Set oNameSpace = Nothing
End Sub

You code is working, check value in sEmailTo.
May be
AccMail = DLookup("ACEmail", "Clients", "ClientID=" & Me.ClientId)
is returning something wrong
caandalAuthor Commented:
That is not the problem.  As I said This code works fine on a machine that has Office 2003 It has been working fine for years.  The value for sEmailTo is coming from AccMail which the string above in the Sub

 SendMessageOA True, "Datatrix Invoice Number " + Str(Me.InvoiceId), "Dear " & AccName & "," & Chr(13) & Chr(10) & Chr(13) & Chr(10) & "Please find attached the abovementioned invoice for your perusal." & Chr(13) & Chr(10) & Chr(13) & Chr(10) & "Kind Regards," & Chr(13) & Chr(10) & "Carol Longhurst", AccMail, , , "C:\database\Invoice No." + Str(Me.InvoiceId) + ".pdf"

I have tested your code with Access and Outlook 2007 and it is working if I have assigned to AccMail some string with address ("")
May be some references are missing?
caandalAuthor Commented:
That could be the problem.  Are you using Access 2003?  If so do you know which reference includes the SendOA libraries etc?
caandalAuthor Commented:
I have just double checked my code and there is definitely a value coming back with the code but I hard coded the e-mail address anyway and still got the same error.  I know that it is not the code that is the issue but as you say maybe one of my references is causing the problem.
OK. I have now same error on computer with Office 2010 only.
It is happened if outlook is not opened. Can you try to open outlook before running program?

Hi als315

Sorry for the delay in getting back to this issue.  We have been busy with a big rollout and I missed this reply

But it works perfectly
Thank you
