I want to write a script that attaches a PDF to the email from another application.
This might be a really dumb question, but why would you need a script to attach a .pdf file? There’s a little icon on the menu where you can use that to attach a file. I just did that today. Maybe there’s something I’m not seeing? Or, you can just drag and drop the .pdf onto the mail.
I develop programs based on Visual Foxpro and in this context I need a procedure to automatically attach PDF files to emails, which would be far too time-consuming to do manually. With Outlook it worked just fine.
oApp = createobject (“Outlook.Application”)
oNS = oApp.GetNameSpace (“MAPI”)
.Attachments.Add (MailAttachmentsAdd (KK))
OH! That’s interesting! If you do a lot of emails I can see where this would be nice to have. I only send pdf files to two people, once a month. I hope you can find a solution to your problem. Thanks for explaining this to me. Now I know more than I did yesterday!
