code to open outlook and attach document to send RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are using Windows XP for Professionals and Office 2007 (Word and Outlook 2007). We have a Microsoft work document (a short form) that is saved on the server. I am trying to figure out if I can insert a command button on the word document so that after an employee fills in the form when they click the command button outlook will open up and attach the document to an email. I would also like to have the "To" line filled in with a specific email address which is stored in Outlook. Then also have the subject line filled in so that all the employee has to do is click the send button.

    All of my work in writing code has been in Access and I know thee is code to do "MailTo:" but I know that code does not work in Word.

    If anyone can help me out I will need to have you supply me with the code and also let me know if the code goes someplace in Outlook or in Word. If I am not mistaken I believe the code will go into word.

    Thank you in advance for you help
