CreateObject to Attachment Object conversion

CreateObject to Attachment Object conversion

CreateObject to Attachment Object conversion

Hi everybody,

I wrote some code as shown below, which allows a user to create an embedded word document from a file, this works fine. But I've been asked if I can change this so that it's an attachment instead, anybody now how I can change this code to do that.



        Dim uiw As New NotesUIWorkSpace
    Dim wordobj As Variant, handle As Variant, csz As String
    Dim app As Variant
    Dim uid As NotesUIDocument
    Set uid = uiw.CurrentDocument
    Call uid.GotoField("letter")
    Call uid.CreateObject("Word Document","","mypath")
    Set handle = uid.GetObject ("Word Document")
    Call handle.activate
    Set app = handle.Application
Call app.ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("supplier"). _Range.InsertAfter((uid.FieldGetText("supplier")))

RE: CreateObject to Attachment Object conversion

Do you want to make it an attachment after it's been embedded ?

RE: CreateObject to Attachment Object conversion

Yes that's right, because my users want to simply click on an attachment to view it, instead of having to view an embedded document. But I did it this way, so that I could put data into the word document.

RE: CreateObject to Attachment Object conversion

Well, unless anyone has a better idea, you'll have to do it the hard way. That means that the only way I can think of to switch an embedded object to an attachment is to save it to disk, remove it from the document, then attach it as an attachment.
It would be simpler to have users write up their info in Word or Excel and have them attach it instead of embedding it, no ?
