System Requirements

DBPix Image Control version 2.0.
Microsoft Access 2000 or later.
Outlook 2000 or Later.


Installation

Unzip the archive into a new/empty folder.

Walkthrough

Open the form "frmImages".
Click the button "Send Email".
When Outlook opens complete the "To:" field.
The email is ready to send.

Technical Overview

This sample uses some simple Outlook automation commands to create an email. The image (which is stored in the database in this example) is saved to a temporary file, then attached to the message. Finally the message is displayed to the user for review.

Note that the To address could be completed automatically, and the email sent without user intervention, so a fully automated emailing mechanism is possible if required.
