how to reference a record set field within CDO syntax

Mark Drelinger
Last Modified: 2020-01-28
I'm trying to attach a file to an email via vbscript and CDO.  
The error is "Wrong number of arguments or invalid property assignment: 'objCDO.AttachFile'"

              objCDO.AttachFile (rsEQUIPInvoices.Fields.Item("InvoiceFileLocation").Value)

value from recordset is exactly as:

I think its the way I'm referencing the field, but I can't remember the proper syntax.
Please advise.

Set objCDO = Server.CreateObject("Cdonts.NewMail")
objCDO.BodyFormat =0 ' 0 is a plain text, 0 "zero" is a HTML
objCDO.MailFormat = 0 ' 1 is a plain text, 0 "zero" is mime format

objCDO.From = Request("varFrom")
objCDO.To = Request("varTo")

objCDO.Subject = "Invoices from Schmidt Equipment"
objCDO.Body = "Invoices from Schmidt Equipment"

While ((Repeat1__numRows <> 0) AND (NOT rsEQUIPInvoices.EOF))

Set objCDO = Nothing
