I am using Powerbuilder. Is there any way to attach a file to the MS

Outlook...from the Application Program itself?

N.B. The User will not have to attach the file fut the program will

automatically attach the file..

thanks

You can't attach a file to the application. You can attach it to an item.

Ken, No.. you did not understand my questtion al all... Let me explain you

again...

1. I am running an application using Powerbuilder.

2. From this application I am calling MS Outlook.

3. Users then search for a specific file (some .doc, .xls etc) to attach

with this Outlook.

I want to create something so that I can attach the file with Outlook

(instead user to look for it...since I know exactly what file needs to be

attached...)

all users are left to do is to put the Recipient address and Send....

You would use the Outlook object model to do that. I have no idea about

Powerbuilder, but in VBA code if oMail is a mail item then this would attach

a file to the item:

Dim oAttach As Outlook.Attachment

Set oAttach = oMail.Attachments.Add("pathToTheFile")
