    This is my first post in this forum and hopefully I can find someone who has
    a solution for this problem that is driving me to drink (more). The entire
    macro works as designed except when someone uses the sendobject a second
    time. For example, the user goes through and sends a quote via email just
    fine. It returns to the form. The next time a user tries to send a quote via
    email it returns to the form but the entire application is frozen. I can not
    click on anything and have to use task manager to shut it down. Any help
    would be appreciated. I would attach a screen copy of the macro but I don't
    see where I can attach a file. Let me know if you need additional

  2. Doc,

    In the absence of a screen shot of the macro, please type the details of the
    macro (all Actions, and relevant Arguments), into your post here. That may
    give us a clue what is going on. Thanks.

    I have solved the sending email problem since I posted. However, I'm left
    with one problem. If the user closes the email window that pops up for them
    to review rather than click on send the entire application freezes and I have
    to use task manager to close it.

    Here you go:

    OnError - Macro Name, Return to Form
    PrintOut - All, , , High, 1, Yes
    SelectObject - Report, rptQuotePrintedNew, No
    SendObject - Report, rptQuotePrintedNew, PDF Format (*.pdf),
    =[Forms]![frmQuoteView]![E-MAIL], , , ="Services Kit-Parts Quote - " &
    [Forms]![frmQuoteView]![QUOTE_ID], Attached is a quote for parts or parts
    kit. Please review and send the purchase order when the quote
    Close - Report, rptQuotePrintedNew, No
    SelectObject - Form, frmQuoteView, No
    SetValue - [Forms]![frmQuoteView]![PRINTDT], Now()
    SetValue - [Forms]![frmQuoteView]![STATUS_ID], 5
    SetValue - [Forms]![frmQuoteView]![FILELINK],
    " Parts Kits/Quotes/Services Kit-Parts Quote - " & [Forms]![frmQuoteView]![QUOTE_ID] & ".pdf"
