Hello,
I am using docmd.sendobject to email a report out and all works well. I would like to be able to have the email sent from a specific email address or a reply to to specify an address. (Invoices emailed by all members of staff but I want any replies to go back to accounts@xxxx.com)
This is what I use:
DoCmd.SendObject acSendReport, "alterviewinvoice", acFormatPDF, emailadd, , , "Your Invoice Number " & Me.invno & " is attached", "Please find our invoice attached", True

Any help greatly appreciated
Iain

I don't think that's possible with DoCmd.SendObject.

You'll need to automate your email client, eg Outlook, export the report as PDF, attach it and set the sender etc.

You won't be able to change the FROM address using the SendObject command.

Here's a paper that may help: DoCmd SendObject Command in Microsoft Access: Features and Limitations for Sending Emails
