    Unanswered: Code to email file to single record from query?

    I put together a macro that runs 4 codes. The first code creates a PDF copy of a coverletter. The second code creates a PDF copy of the invoices to accompany the coverletter. The third code merges the two PDFs into one. The fourth code emails the merged file to a single specified recipient. All of these steps work very well but I need to change the fourth code so that it pulls the email address from a query within my database. That query will only return one record and email address at any given time. This is probably very easy for someone who knows VB well but unfortunatly, I'm still learning and nothing I tried was working. Here is the code I am currently running in the fourth part of the macro, when I pull up the function under RunCode, I specify whatever email address manually by typing it in the "ToEmail" prompt:

    Public Function SendEMail(ToEmail As String) As Boolean
    ' Must have Tools>Referrence Microsoft DAO 3.X Object Library
    ' Microsoft Oulook X.0 Object Model, and Microsoft Scripting
    ' Runtime checked.
    Dim db As DAO.Database
    Dim MyOutlook As Outlook.Application
    Dim MyMail As Outlook.MailItem
    Dim Subjectline As String
    Dim BodyFile As String
    Dim fso As FileSystemObject
    Dim MyBody As TextStream
    Dim MyBodyText As String
    Set fso = New FileSystemObject
    Set db = CurrentDb()
    Set MyOutlook = New Outlook.Application
    Set MyMail = MyOutlook.CreateItem(olMailItem)
    MyMail.To = ToEmail
    MyMail.Subject = ""
    MyMail.Body = ""
    MyMail.Attachments.Add "H:\Access\Dunning Letters\1DL.pdf", olByValue, 1, "My Displayname"
    End Function
