VBA script for Access to outlook email

I am using Access as a front end for an SQL express database.  I am searching for a VBA script that will allow me to send an email which will populate from three fields - two email fields (student and instructor) which I will send the email to, and one larger field which will contain a section of notes about what was discussed during an appointment  (body of email or an attachment - either works).

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This will get you started with using an Outlook object in VBA.

Including information from a recordset should be fairly simple from here.

If you have no need of automating Outlook, then you can use SendObject:

Dim sBody as String
Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
Set rst = Currentdb.OpenRecordset("SELECT * FROM YourTable")

DoCmd.SendObject acSendNoObject, , , rst("EmailTo"), , , "Your Subject", rst("BodyField")

Or, if needed, you can automate Outlook. Here's an EE article:
