I'm using the code below to send emails from access. I would like to add code to send the attachment from the access attachment field on the form.... see sample form attached

Dim rs As DAO.Recordset

'On Error Resume Next
 Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("qryEmail_Reminder_RecordSet_Apps")
With rs
 If .EOF And .BOF Then 'IT MEANS THERE ARE NO RECORDS, WE ARE AT THE BEGINNING OF FILE AND END OF FILE (No Records found for this query.)
 MsgBox " No emails will be sent because there are no records from the query ‘Email_Reminder_RecordSet_Apps’ "
Else
 Do Until .EOF 'DO UNTIL END OF RECORDSET FILE

'THE NEXT LINE SENDS THE EMAIL MESSAGE

DoCmd.SendObject acSendNoObject, , , ![Send_Email], , , "New Application Access", "Hello " & ![Send_To] & _
", " & Chr(10) & "Please grant access to " & ![First_Name] & _
" " & ![Last_Name] & _
", " & ![User_Email] & _
" to the following application: " _
& Chr(10) & ![App_Site_Name] & Chr(10) & Chr(10) _
& Chr(10) _
& Chr(10) _
& Chr(10) _
& "Thanks, " & Chr(10) _
& "V hields" _
& Chr(10) _
& "DSPC"


.Edit
 ![Email_Sent_Date] = Now()
 .Update
 

 .MoveNext 'THIS MOVES TO THE NEXT RECORD IN THE RECORDSET
 Loop

End If
 End With





'CLEAN UP MEMORY AT END
 If Not rs Is Nothing Then
 rs.Close
 Set rs = Nothing
 End If

You cannot send attachments using SendObject. You'd have to use Outlook automation (assuming you're using Outlook for email), or something along those lines.

Patrick Matthews has a good article on automating outlook from Access, which includes methods to manage attachments:
