I'm using this code to email: -
    Dim objMsg As Object
    Set objMsg= CreateObject("CDO.Message")
    With objMsg
   
        .Subject = Subject
        .From = "user@domain.com"
        .To =  "user@domain.com"
        .TextBody = strMessText
        .AddAttachment ("file://" & strTempFile)

I want to add multiple attachments does anyone know the syntax?

Those are actually links, not attachments.  If that is what you want (and the path is the same on the recipient's computer), it's fine.  But if not, here is the code for adding attachments:

Private Sub SendMailAttachment

On Error GoTo ErrorHandler

   Dim appOutlook As New Outlook.Application
   Dim msg As Outlook.MailItem
   Dim strFileName As String
   Dim strFilePath As String
   
   strFilePath = Application.CurrentProject.Path
   strFileName = strFilePath & "\Contacts.csv"
   
   'Save Contacts table as a text file in same folder as database
   DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, "Contacts Export Specification", _
      "tblContacts", strFileName, True
      
   'Create new mail message and attach text file to it
   Set msg = appOutlook.CreateItem(olMailItem)
   With msg
      .To = "John Doe"
      .Subject = "Contacts file you requested"
      .Body = "This file was exported from tblContacts on " & _
         Date & "." & vbCrLf & vbCrLf
      .Attachments.Add strFileName
      .Display
   End With
   
ErrorHandlerExit:
   Exit Sub

ErrorHandler:
   MsgBox "Error No: " & Err.Number & "; Description: " & Err.Description
   Resume ErrorHandlerExit

End Sub

Open in new window
