I have attached the following code to a button on the quick access bar

in Outlook. It does all I want except that "body text" erases my

default signature. Is there some additional code I could include that

would complete the email with my default signature? The default

signature uses various fonts sizes and colours. Thanks for any help.

Sub inspector()

Dim myOlApp As New Outlook.Application

Dim myItem As Object

Dim myAttachments As Outlook.Attachments

Set myItem = myOlApp.ActiveInspector.currentitem

Set myAttachments = myItem.Attachments

myItem.Subject = "Status Report"

myItem.Body = "body text"

myAttachments.Add "C:\Documents and settings\etc

myItem.Display

End Sub

Call Display() before you add anything to the body. The signature is added

after the item is opened.

If you want to have your addition before any signature then after you call

Display() use code like this:

myItem.Body = "body text" & myItem.Body

Hi Ken

Thankyou for youir reply. What have I done wrong? I think I have

altered my code as you suggested but it does not make any difference.

Here's what I wrote... Would you be kind enough to point out my

mistake?

Sub InsertMySig()

Dim myOlApp As New Outlook.Application

Dim myItem As Object

Dim myAttachments As Outlook.Attachments

Set myItem = myOlApp.ActiveInspector.currentitem

Set myAttachments = myItem.Attachments

myItem.Subject = "Status Report"

myItem.Display

myItem.Body = "body text" & myItem.Body

myAttachments.Add "C:\Documents and settings\etc"

End Sub

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes

Steve

I'm not sure. Let's see what happens first if you comment out the line

myItem.Body = "body text" & myItem.Body. Do you get the signature then? If

so and the body format is HTML, then see if it helps to use this line

instead:

myItem.HTMLBody = "body text" & myItem.HTMLBody
