I have a report titled “Monthly ABC Report”

I use the following code to send out the email.
How do I attached the “Monthly ABC Report” to my code below so that it will attach when I send out this email and change it to a PDF?


Option Compare Database

Sub Mail_Outlook_With_Signature_Html_1()
' Working in Office 2000-2013
    Dim OutApp As Object
    Dim OutMail As Object
    Dim strbody As String

    Set OutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    Set OutMail = OutApp.CreateItem(0)

    strbody = "Please find attached last month's Regions Monthly Report along with #ACCNTS and #GUARS.<br>" & _
              "<br><br>" & _
              "Regions Monthly Presumptive #ACCNTS Export.<br>" & _
              "Regions Monthly Presumptive #GUARS Export.<br>" & _
              "<br><br>" & _
              "Thank you<br>"

On Error Resume Next

    With OutMail
        .To = "
        .CC = "
        .BCC = ""
        .Subject = "Regions Monthly Report"
        .HTMLBody = strbody & "<br>" & .HTMLBody
    End With

    On Error GoTo 0
    Set OutMail = Nothing
    Set OutApp = Nothing
End Sub 


RE: Email with Attachment

Is the report pdf already on disk or do you need to generate it as well?


RE: Email with Attachment


.Attachments.Add (sFullPathToFile) 

But as John states, this will only work if there is a physical file located on the filesystem.

also what are you trying to achieve with this?


.HTMLBody = strbody & "<br>" & .HTMLBody
