Good morning,

Does anyone have any insight, if its at all possible, to be able to send messages from MS Access to Slack? For example, I want to notify of guest arrivals via Slack but only want to enter the guests name/company and it sends a pre-formatted message automatically. I can do the programming (I think) just don't know if there is a function available in Access to do this. I know how to do it via email but not Slack.

"<So and So> from <company> are here to see you."

Thank you.:banghead:

Hi. It would be possible to do it in Access using a HTTPRequest Class if Slack offers a web service for it. Do you know if they have an API?

Hi. That wasn't what I was talking about unless the URL you're talking about is to a web service. It has to be a web address for a code to get into the system, not a person.

I've recently seen SQL Server be able to do this fairly easily. Of course, SOAP has been built into SQL Server for 15 years now, and it's highly extensible with SQLCLR. I wouldn't wish a newbie to run into using SQLCLR without a LOT of patience. I mean, just the development methodology, from where I'm standing it's ALWAYS changing drastically from one version of Visual Studio to another. I mean, if the SQLCLR .dll is already compiled, and you have a relatively strong resource for assistance (in case anything goes wrong) i would look at these three articles

I've been trying to post the three credible resources that I've found on this, but this website is saying that I am appearing to send spammy messages. You got an email address?

Takes 10 posts before you can post external links. Keeps out most spammers.
4 more and you're there.
