Chapter 16. Sharing Data > Sending Access Objects in Email

Sending Access Objects in Email

Remember earlier when you wanted to share your catalogs with your gardening friend? Well, you could export that data to a disc or simply send the data to her via email. Certainly, if you both have email, that would be the easiest choice. Fortunately, Access 2003 makes sharing data via email extremely easy. In this next exercise, you send the catalog data to yourself using email. Follow these steps:

1.
In the Database window, click the Tables shortcut and select Catalogs.

2.
Select Send To from the File menu.

3.
The resulting submenu offers two options, but only the Mail Recipient (As Attachment) is enabled, so select it.

4.
In the Send dialog box, choose a format for the data you’re sending. Table 16.1 explains the various options. For this example, select Rich Text Format (*.rtf), and then click OK.

5.
Access uses your default email software to display a new message that contains the Catalogs table as a text attachment (remember, you selected Text File in the previous step). Address the email to yourself.

6.
Click Send.
