    Hello chums

    I have a customer database with all of the tools to send emails to recipients from the database. That works great and, using "ClickYes", the level of unmanned sending gets me round spamming limits at the ISP level too.

    My latest request is to be able to add PDF (or other) attachments to the email.

    In my VBA code, I have a snippet of code that says:

    With oMail
    .to = strEmailAddress
    .body = Me.txtEmailMessageContent.Value
    .Subject = Me.txtEmailSubjectMatter.Value
    .Attachments.Add ("C:\Documents and Settings\User\Desktop\testdocument.pdf")
    End With
    With this code in place, Access sends the email to the variable 'strEmailAddress' with the attachment shown in the path, and hardcoded in VBA its great.

    I'd like however to be able to navigate to the file I want to attach, so its not dependent on the filename being coded.

    I once created some VB code (as opposed to VBA) that opens a dialogue box to let me nagivate to the file I want to choose, but, before I go around the houses, would that VB code (written in VB6) be suitable for my Access concept? Will it drop straight into my VBA?

    Hope VB/VBA gurus can guide me here!
