How To

Fax a report via Microsoft Fax or WinFax by randysmid
Posted: 23 Jan 03 (Edited 23 Oct 03)

Hi,
You can fax a report using Microsoft Fax or WinFax.  Microsoft has written an FAQ on this topic and it can be found at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us...
This technique uses the SendObject command, which is illustrated in the FAQ with a function named FaxInvoices.  

Microsoft has also provided a database filled with numerous report samples, including fax samples for Microsoft Fax and WinFax.  The downloadable file is called RptSmp00.exe (for Access 2000).  (by the way, there is also a file called RptSmp97.exe for Access 97 users - if you are unable to find it, send me an email and I will send it to you).  After running the executable (RptSmp00.exe), you will end up with an Access database called RptSmp00.mdb

Go into the Modules section, and look for "modFaxExample", then click on Design.  

Microsoft Fax code
Scroll down until you see the function called "MSFaxInvoices".  

WinFax code
Scroll down until you see the function called "WinFaxInvoices".  Also take a look at the function "SendWinFax".  These two functions work together to provide the functionality.
