    Talking Unanswered: E-Mail Merge

    I currently have database set up with so that the user types the first name, last name and persons email address into a form and then at the end of the day, they click a button that hyperlinks them the appropriate Word document to do an email merge. Is there a way that I can automate the process a little better and remove the hyperlink and just have the user click a button in Access without ever going directly to Word and sending out the emails? Sending the email as a snapshot of a report is not an option.

    I will also need it to input the person's First and Last Name into the body according to what is in my table, similar to the <<Greeting Line>> function in Word's mail merge. I would also like to use Outlook to send the emails.

    Thank you for your help!

    Hi, would it help having an option to save the form/report as PDF using a tool that includes email functionality? I am about to try this myself one of these days. Could be worth a look,

    - or search yourself at Google, using for example:
    "free pdf print"
    (without the quotes)
