I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

As indicated, you should create a report, but the attachment by MAS doesn't seem to show code how to do that, or how to email a report.

You can send a report as an Email like this:

DoCmd.OpenReport acSendReport, 'Your Report Name", acFormatPDF, "", , , "Your Subject", "Your Body", True

Here's more information about the Sendobject command:
No points please - I think the DoCmd.OpenReport in Scott's comment above is a typo.  It should be DoCmd.SendObject, as in his MSDN link.

Thanks Miriam - that was a typo!

The correct way to do this is to create a report, and MAS suggested this, along with a sample file. My comment provided additional commentary and links to relevant material.
