Attatchment included in the Outlook mail compose

I have a table containing people's information. Each row is each person's with name, phone, email and attachment files. Now what i want is when i click on one person's email address, it opens up the Outlook compose window with included the attachment file ready in that row. How can I do this?

Please be clear:
"Each row is each person's with name, phone, email and attachment files. "

What form do these attachments take?
Are they all in different columns?
Are they paths to the file: ("c:\SomeFolder\Somefile.xxx")?
Are they Attachment datatypes?

One person can have many attachment files. They are attachment datatypes. The path is different.

If you accepted my comment accidentally, or if you wish to re-open so that you can engage further with boag2000, I have no objection to a re-open.  Just click Request Attention, and ask a Mod to re-open the question for you.

This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

Thanks. No need for that. Just quick question. I open your sample database. How can i view all tables in there? I couldn't find the button to view them.

Sorry, I had hidden the database window.  Hit F11 to restore it.

No sweat Pat,

I was just curious about the attachments...
