Help with VB

Someone from the message board forwarded me this code...however I think that
there is something wrong with it. Can someone please review and let me how
to proceed with using it? Thanks!

The logic goes as follows:
A recordset is created which has the user's ID and Email. This should
be the same recordset as the report is based off of. The report is then
opened. Now we loop through the recordset and grab the UserID and
Email. Taking this information we then call two procedures. The first
filters the report based on the UserID(or whatever unique identifier you
have on your report - could be email). Now that the report is filtered
the second procedure is called. This time we pass the email (along with
report name) and send a snapshot of the filtered report to this
employee. Then we loop back and process the rest of the recordset.

There are many ways to send emails and many formats to send them in.
This should give you some ideas.

Hi Matt,

What exactly is your question? What do you think is wrong with the code?

Ah, well, the code appears to go behind a form. The form has a button called
cmdSendReport and uses the two functions to perform what is required. You
will need to update the code to put your own report names and where
conditions in there...

Hope this helps.

Damian the code gets hung up at

"Function SendReportByEmail(strReportName As String, strEmail As String)
As Boolean

Any suggestions?
