Word Oulook Mail Merge Attachment

Word Oulook Mail Merge Attachment

Word Oulook Mail Merge Attachment


Does anyone know how to mail merge to an email AND have a separate document attachment? You can attach the word merge document to an email but I have the content of the email be my Word document and I want to attach a different document to the email. Is there a field code or some programming that will allow me to do this?


RE: Word Oulook Mail Merge Attachment

This will work if you have something that uses VBA like Access or maybe Outlook 2000
Put this in your Module
Public Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long
put this in a command button
Private Sub Command0_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_Command0_Click

Dim stext As String
Dim sAddedtext As String
If Len(txtMainAddresses) Then
stext = txtMainAddresses
End If
If Len(txtCC) Then
sAddedtext = sAddedtext & "&CC=" & txtCC
End If
If Len(txtBCC) Then
sAddedtext = sAddedtext & "&BCC=" & txtBCC
End If
If Len(txtSubject) Then
sAddedtext = sAddedtext & "&Subject=" & txtSubject
End If
If Len(txtBody) Then
sAddedtext = sAddedtext & "&Body=" & txtBody
End If
If Len(txtAttachment) Then
sAddedtext = sAddedtext & "Attach=" & Chr$(34) & Me!txtAttachment & Chr$(34)
End If

stext = "mailto:" & stext

If Len(sAddedtext) <> 0 Then
Mid$(sAddedtext, 1, 1) = "?"
End If

stext = stext & sAddedtext

' launch default e-mail program
If Len(stext) Then
Call ShellExecute(Me.hwnd, "open", stext, vbNullString, vbNullString, SW_SHOWNORMAL)
End If

Exit Sub

MsgBox Err.Description
Resume Exit_Command0_Click

End Sub
