I have found some info in these boards on how to do this, but it is a little (or a lot!) over my head...
I have a form that I want to email. I want the email to look the same as the form does in Access97, so I thought I would use a PDF of it as an email attachment. I use PDF995 to create the PDF, but that's open to change (as is the pdf itself, if anyone has a better suggestion...)
I want to build a button to take the form (filtered to one record only), print it with PDF995 using the reservation number ("Reservation Number") in the record as the file name (automatically if possible to a non-changing directory), then take the email address from text box "E-mail Address" on the form, automatically create an email with this address, pdf attachment, and subject "Your Confirmation" (this doesn't need to change).
I'm using Access and Outlook 97. I am slowly learning to us the macros in A97, but all the talk of code, modules, subs, etc, blows by me. I would appreciate any help that you all would like to give someone who is learning!
Thanks in advance,
BTW - I may also want to be able to fax these forms via fax-modem at a later date. If this is something that is easy to incorporate with this problem, feel free to solve two birds with one stone!!!
