Use SendObject to Email a Report in MS Access

In this Microsoft Access tutorial I'm going to teach you how to use the SendObject command to email an invoice or any other report with just one click.

James from Cheyenne, Wyoming (a Platinum Member) asks: Is it possible to send an invoice directly to a customer by just clicking on a button on the order form itself. Right now I've got a click to open the invoice report and then click the send the button and then copy and paste their email address and type in a little message and a subject and it's just a big pain. Can all of this be automated?


Please note that this technique only works with the original Microsoft Outlook application that comes with Office, not the new Outlook app found in the Microsoft App Store. Nor does it work with the online-only version of Outlook. They fundamentally changed the way it sends emails for "security" purposes. 


Members will learn how to customize the invoice so that the attachment has a custom file name, check to make sure there is an email address for this customer before sending, and deal with the error if the user cancels sending.
