OK so you've copied a section of code from my app together with additional code by Vlad.
Trying to combine two different sections of code isn't always simple
However all the functionality you need should be in my example app

There are 3 main ways of including an Access report with an email
The easiest way to attach a report to an email is to save it as a PDF. The example app includes code to attach a saved file. Use that.
It is also possible to save a report as an image file and use that as an attachment but I don't recommend that
The third method would be to include an inline image of the report as part of the email body (HTML email only). However as many email apps now block inline images for security reasons, that isn't usually a good solution either

Thank you for the info

i would really like to attached the report from access as I did with the code provided

i would rally appreciate it if you could assist as I am really not that good at VBA and would be so grateful if this could be accomplished

You really need to start learning VBA, if you intend to do work like this?

I agree and I would love to have the knowledge to be able to write VBA as you guys, it really is amazing with the suggestions and sample I receive on this site

every time I ask you guys i learn a lot. and i do search online quite bit and look at youtube videos

OK I'll give you a brief guide to how you could do it. You'll learn more by creating the code yourself.

1. Save the report as a PDF using code or the export wizard
2. Now create a string variable e.g. strFilePath and set its value to the PDF you just saved
3. Use that value for the attachment part of the CDO Email code and send the email.
If you decide to use my form for sending the email, you can populate the attachment textbox with the variable value

Hope that helps.

Ok I will give it a go,

I am basically using all of you CDO code, testemail, which is my SendEmail
you testHTMLMail, SendMailCDO , sub sendTHMMail and btnEmail

Then I will add the code which you guys assisted in writing to attach the report and get my recipient list from my query

i dont really want to go the route of saving the PDF as in the next step will be to add a multi page report representing one page page breaks
all that you guys have been assisting me, is now all coming together, and looks really good
so once again, thank you all for all the assistance

I don't think you have any option, now that you have to change the method of sending?
Bite the bullet and work with what you have. :)

@ Gizmo - the code I gave you had an error that I now corrected (messed up with copy and paste and pasted Colin's sub inside the previous one so it was missing the End Sub)

I have modified the code so it should work OK once you set up your email server settings.

Code:
Sub emailReportAsPDF()
Dim rs As Recordset
Dim vRecipientList As String
Dim vMsg As String
Dim vSubject As String
Dim vReportPDF as String

Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("SELECT * FROM TechPubDual ")
If rs.RecordCount > 0 Then
rs.MoveFirst
Do
If Not IsNull(rs!email) Then
vRecipientList = vRecipientList & rs!email & "," 'Vlad - changed email separator to comma
rs.MoveNext
Else
rs.MoveNext
End If

Loop Until rs.EOF

vMsg = "Please find attached new document loaded"
vSubject = "New Document Loaded"
vReportPDF = CurrentProject.Path & "\" & "Email_SB_Notification_From_TechPubs_All_SB_TBL.pdf"

'<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<export the report as PDF>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Hi,

Yes I noticed the End sub was missing and I have amended the code.

Thank you for your reply, but is still have the same problem as before which I am not sure on how to amend
Now where in the SendMailCDO do you refer to the emailReportAsPDF Sub routine

How do I call the sub routine from SendMail CDO?

I think you have all wrong, it is the other way around; look at the code and you will see that emailReportAsPDF first creates your email list (vRecipientList), then it exports the report to PDF:
Code:
'<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<export the report as PDF>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Docmd.OutputTo acReport,"Email SB Notification - From TechPubs - All - SB TBL",acFormatPDF, vReportPDF

and finally calls the SendMailCDO providing all the required arguments:
Code:
'<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<call Colin's sub to email report as attachment>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
SendEMailCDO vRecipientList,"",vSubject,vMsg,"",vReportPDF
'<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<call Colin's sub to email report as attachment>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

So what you need to do is to simply use:
Code:
Call emailReportAsPDF 'you can even leave Call out

in the Click event of your "Email Report" command button.

Just move the Select Case (where you are checking for plain text or HTML to emailReportAsPDF replacing the line calling the SendEMailCDO
Code:
'<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<call Colin's sub to email report as attachment>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Select Case Me.cboEMailType

Case 1 'plain text
SendEMailCDO vRecipientList, "", vSubject, vMsg, "", vReportPDF

Case 2 'HTML
SendEMailHTMLCDO vRecipientList, "", vSubject, vMsg, "", vReportPDF 'you seem to be missing this sub
                                

End Select

Hi All,

I have searched all over and not sure on how to handle this.
Every user that needs to send email would require to enter his windows password as this is the requirement for Gsuig GMail authentication.
I managed to get the windows user name.
As security is priority, how can I use vba to lookup the windows password as we do with GetUserName, but not to store or make the password visible?
If not, do you have a work around for this one? I do not want the users to enter their windows password each time they need to send the email.
or, how would I be able to reference active directory?

Not true (unless its changed in the last few weeks).
There are two solutions described on the final page of the Help file supplied with my CDO Email Tester app (see post #8)
This is the relevant part
1614086541066.png


I use the Set App Password approach. It works...or at least it did when last tested a couple of weeks ago

Hi All,

Please advise on where the error is in my code

User must enter the password
then update the table WPass to control WPassEnt

Dim SQL As String
Dim WPassStr As String

'Enter Password
Dim Message, Title, Default
Message = "Enter Windows Password"
Title = "Enter Parameters"
WPassStr = InputBox(Message, Title, Default)


DoCmd.SetWarnings False
DoCmd.RunSQL "UPDATE WPass SET WPassEnt = WPassStr"
DoCmd.SetWarnings True

Try:
"UPDATE WPass SET WPassEnt ='" & WPassStr & "'" or better:
"UPDATE WPass SET WPassEnt =""" & WPassStr & """"
Cheers,

It depends of your definition of blank. Do you have an existing record in that table with the field WPassEnt being Null? If yes you can use a Dlookup to check:
If NZ(Dlookup("[WPassEnt]","WPass")="" Then 'assumes the table will only have one record, the one for the current user
'do your Update

Now if you mean the table is blank like in no records yet you code would fail as you cannot update something that is not there yet. You need to use an append instead (INSERT INTO).
For that to check you use dCOunt:
If DCount("*","WPass")=0 Then 'no record exists
'insert new record in table
Cheers,
