Emailing from Access

By dlmiller99 ·
I've created a database and reports in Access that I want to mass email out. I've tried sending in .rtf format and, not only do I lose a lot of the formatting in the report, the the file for a 2 page report ends up being a 9 MB attachment which is too large to send. I tested sending the file as a Snapshot and it worked well. However, some of the recipients don't have Snapshot Viewer and the download for this program is no longer available on the Microsoft website (whether for Win98 or Win2000). Any suggestions on how I can do a mass emailing of reports without losing the formatting to recipients who may or may not have Snapshot Viewer?

I convert my Access reports to .pdf format. If you don't have Acrobat Distiller, you can visit the following website to complete the conversion for free:

Anyone with Adobe Acrobat Reader can view .pdf documents, and Reader is free via download.

There is a marvelous 3rd party program from FMS called Total Access Emailer. It costs $500 but well worth it if you plan to e-mail from Access on a frequent basis. Check it out at
or call FMS at 1-888-367-5298. I downloaded a trial version and it works great.
