Hi Experts,

You must have removed the message field from the form.  If that field isn't on the form, then the Attach File button is automatically disabled.  The only way to get it back is to put that field back on the form.

I am not using the message body as it is custom form.  Any other idea?

David LeeCommented:
I understand that.  But, without the field on the form the attachment button is going to be unavailable.

In the message field, my signature (like my Name, Phone Number etc.) appears every time I run it.  Is there any way to clear it during run time?  Like I clear TxtBox (propChg.Controls("TextBoxName").Clear.  I tried to clear the message field this way.  But got error.

David LeeCommented:
Yes, you can clear the field.   Here's how to do that.

Sub Item_Open()
    Item.body = ""
End Sub

Open in new window


You could also resize the message body field on the form and even hide it behind some other control if you don't want it to be visible.
