We're trying to create an automated email from an Access 2003 database and can't get the date in the email formatted the way we'd like.  We want the dates in the email to be formatted like this - Tuesday, Jan. 30 or something close to that.  I've attached the email as it currently is created and the code is below.  Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.


With CreateObject("Outlook.Application").CreateItem(0)
        .to = "renatewiegert@lakewoodhealthsystem.com"
        .Subject = "New Hire - " & Me.Parent.First & " " & Me.Parent.Last & "  "
        ' Set body format to HTML
'        .BodyFormat = 2
        ' Format the message
        .HTMLbody = _
            "<html><font face = Arial>"  & _
                "<b>" & _
                "New Hire: " & "</b>" & " " & Me.Parent.First & " " & Me.Parent.Last & "" & "<br><br>" & _
                "<b>" & _

Hi,

to insert the signature if you already have it automatically

is to display first, read the signature and add it to your text

.Display
signature = .HTMLBody
.HTMLBody = "Your Text" & vbNewLine & signature
