Email current record on a access form

Hello Experts,

I have attached a sample access file for better clarity to my question. I want to be able to email as  PDF attachment the current record on a form. At the moment when I click on email button every record gets sent on the attachment. I appreciate in advance the support here

Thanks
Braulio

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.

FIRST, you need to create a report based upon this form.

Then you need to modify the RecordSource for the report, something like:

SELECT * FROM qry_YourReport
WHERE ID = Forms!yourFormName.PKID

Then you can use the SendObject method to send the email with that report, using the PDF output format.

The key is using the WHERE clause in the Report Record Source.
