SendObject Method [Access 2003 VBA Language Reference]

Office 2003

The SendObject method carries out the SendObject action in Visual Basic.

expression.SendObject(ObjectType, ObjectName, OutputFormat, To, Cc, Bcc, Subject, MessageText, EditMessage, TemplateFile)

expression Required. An expression that returns one of the objects in the Applies To list.

AcSendObjectType can be one of these AcSendObjectType constants.
acSendDataAccessPage
acSendForm
acSendModule
acSendNoObject default
acSendQuery
acSendReport
acSendTable

ObjectName  Optional Variant. A string expression that's the valid name of an object of the type selected by the objecttype argument. If you want to include the active object in the mail message, specify the object's type with the objecttype argument and leave this argument blank. If you leave both the objecttype and objectname arguments blank (the default constant, acSendNoObject, is assumed for the objecttype argument), Microsoft Access sends a message to the electronic mail application without an included database object. If you run Visual Basic code containing the SendObject method in a library database, Microsoft Access looks for the object with this name first in the library database, then in the current database.

OutputFormat  Optional Variant.

To  Optional Variant. A string expression that lists the recipients whose names you want to put on the To line in the mail message. Separate the recipient names you specify in this argument and in the cc and bcc arguments with a semicolon (;) or with the list separator set on the Number tab of the Regional Settings Properties dialog box in Windows Control Panel. If the recipient names aren't recognized by the mail application, the message isn't sent and an error occurs. If you leave this argument blank, Microsoft Access prompts you for the recipients.

Cc  Optional Variant. A string expression that lists the recipients whose names you want to put on the Cc line in the mail message. If you leave this argument blank, the Cc line in the mail message is blank.

Bcc  Optional Variant. A string expression that lists the recipients whose names you want to put on the Bcc line in the mail message. If you leave this argument blank, the Bcc line in the mail message is blank.

Subject  Optional Variant. A string expression containing the text you want to put on the Subject line in the mail message. If you leave this argument blank, the Subject line in the mail message is blank.

MessageText  Optional Variant. A string expression containing the text you want to include in the body of the mail message, after the object. If you leave this argument blank, the object is all that's included in the body of the mail message.

EditMessage  Optional Variant. Use True (–1) to open the electronic mail application immediately with the message loaded, so the message can be edited. Use False (0) to send the message without editing it. If you leave this argument blank, the default (True) is assumed.

TemplateFile  Optional Variant. A string expression that's the full name, including the path, of the file you want to use as a template for an HTML file.

Remarks

For more information on how the action and its arguments work, see the action topic.

Modules can be sent only in MS-DOS Text format, so if you specify acSendModule for the objecttype argument, you must specify acFormatTXT for the outputformat argument.

To send a snapshot, set the ObjectType argument to acSendReport and the OutputFormat argument to acFormatSNP.

You can leave an optional argument blank in the middle of the syntax, but you must include the argument's comma. If you leave a trailing argument blank, don't use a comma following the last argument you specify.

Example

The following example includes the Employees table in a mail message in Microsoft Excel format and specifies To, Cc, and Subject lines in the mail message. The mail message is sent immediately, without editing.

DoCmd.SendObject acSendTable, "Employees", acFormatXLS, _
    "Nancy Davolio; Andrew Fuller", "Joan Weber", , _
    "Current Spreadsheet of Employees", , False
