    Form attachment problem??

    I've got my first form working and dumping text into an access db, but now the client wants to be able to attach a file in the form. Can word or excel files be added to an access db or is there a way to copy the text from a file and add it to the DB?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    I have a question about form attachment, I have use exactly what is describe in this link, all works, when client fills the form, the document is attach. My question, when I open Outlook and see the email received, how can I make it so the document attach is shown in the BODY of the email? that way I can see the documents in the order the client wants me to see it.

    strbody = strbody & Form("file1") <---this of course does not work, instead of showing the document, it shows the inside of the document, all coded in (*&$*(&@H%...

    any help would be appreciated.

    I come to find out that you can only embedded images and sound in the body of an email but documents can only be attach, therefore if the attachment cannot be display in the body of the email, is there a way to combined both file attachment and file path written in the body ?
    This helps to organized the documents such like:

    English:
    Documents: boardrooms.doc, documents\entry\text.txt

    French:
    Documents:

    is there a way to do this?
