I'm was using the code below to send Outlook 2010 emails form Access 2010. We recently upgraded to Office 2016 and now I get a runtime error 287 on line  Signature = olMailItem.HTMLBody

Error 287

 Private Sub DoEmail(Fname As String, Lname As String, Email As String, attach As String)

    Dim olApp As New Outlook.Application
    Dim olMailItem As Outlook.MailItem
    Dim a As Variant
    Dim Signature As String
    Set olMailItem = olApp.CreateItem(0)
    With olMailItem
    End With
    Signature = olMailItem.HTMLBody

    olMailItem.To = Email
    olMailItem.Subject = "Monthly Reports"
    olMailItem.HTMLBody = "Find attached your Monthly Cognos and/or eCAPE Monthly Reports. If you have questions please let me know." & "</br></br></br>" & Signature
    For Each a In Split(attach, ",")
        If Dir(a) <> "" Then
            olMailItem.Attachments.Add a
        End If
   ' olMailItem.Send

    Set olMailItem = Nothing
    Set olApp = Nothing

End Sub
