SteveL13 asked
Last Modified: 2016-01-28
I have the following code to send an email along with an attachment;

stDocName = "Buyers Confirmation"

DoCmd.SendObject acReport, stDocName, "PDFFormat(*.pdf)", Me.txtBuyerEmail, DLookup("[ConfirmationCCemailAddress]", "tblXYZcompanyInformation"), , "Buyer's Confirmation -- XYZ Transaction #" & Me.txtDealID, DLookup("[ConfirmationEmailBodyText]", "tblXYZcompanyInformation")

But I want the attachment to be named like this:

Buyers Confirmation XYZ Transaction 1234   (1234 is the me.txtDealID)

instead of this:

Buyers Confirmation.pdf

What do I change the code to be?
