I have this database I am creating.   Its set up to add an email with a report to an email.  There are two thigns missing.   I need the subject of the email to automatically merge from the tblBodyTemplate email.  And I need the attachment from that same table to also go into the email.  Is that possible how so?  I attached a sample to see what I am referring to.

You can dump an item stored in an Attachment field to disc and work with it from there:
Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
 Set rst = Currentdb.OpenRecordset("SELECT * FROM YourTable WHERE YourID=" & Me.YourID
 Dim rstAttachment AS DAO.Recordset
 Set rstAttachment = rst.Fields("YourAttachmentField").Value
 rstAttachment.Fields("FileData").SaveToFile "Path to save"
 
However, as we've told you in your other question, once you do that you cannot use SendObject to attach it. You must automate your email client, and I believe you're using Lotus Notes, and I also believe the "attaching to my email" part was answered here:

Also, here's a good link on working with the Attachment files in VBA: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/bb258184(v=office.12).aspx
