    Send a fax

    Is there a way to fax something via the computer? Such as setting something up as an attachment to an email (see below vba) but instead of sending the attachment in an email could it fax it to a certain fax number?

    [VBA]Sub SendMail()
    Dim oOutlook As Object
    Dim oMailItem As Object
    Dim oRecipient As Object
    Dim oNameSpace As Object
    Dim Lastrow As Long
    Dim bodyText As String
    Dim i As Long


    Set oOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    Set oNameSpace = oOutlook.GetNameSpace("MAPI")
    oNameSpace.Logon , , True


    Set oMailItem = oOutlook.CreateItem(0)

    With oMailItem

    Set oRecipient = .Recipients.Add("klartigue@avalonadvisors.com")
    oRecipient.Type = 1

    .Subject = "Avalon Trade Allocations Attached"

    .body = "Please see the attached trade allocations." & vbNewLine & vbNewLine & _
    "Let me know if you need anything else." & vbNewLine & vbNewLine & _
    "Thanks, " & vbNewLine & vbNewLine & _
    "Katherine Lartigue " & vbNewLine & _
    "klartigue@avalonadvisors.com 713-238-2088"

    .Attachments.Add ("G:\Katherine Lartigue\Allocations\Merrill Lynch Trades.xls")
    .Send
    End With

    End Sub
    [/VBA]

    I have somethiing like this but it says I need a fax service. Is there a way to go about this without using a fax service?

    [VBA]Sub Fax()

    ActiveWorkbook.SendFaxOverInternet _
    "Thomas Giles @ 17132382051", _
    "Please process the enclosed trade ticket. Thanks, Katherine Lartigue ", True

    End Sub
    [/VBA]

    Just send it to MSWord and then print to your fax printer.

    I am trying to fax to an outside source so if I print to my fax printer, at what point do i enter the outside fax # im trying to fax to?

    Like all print operations, you will get a print dialog. You can probably use SendKeys() to fill it.

    Here is what I got when I recorded it. [VBA] ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1, Collate:=True, _
    IgnorePrintAreas:=False[/VBA]

    You can then run your Outlook operation to send the emails.
