Attachment Object


Represents a document or link to a document contained in an Outlook item.

Using the Attachment Object

Use Attachments (index), where index is the index number, to return a single Attachment object.

Use the Add method to add an attachment to an item.

The following Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example creates a new mail message, attaches Q496.xls as an attachment (not a link), and gives the attachment a descriptive caption.

Set myOlApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set myItem = myOlApp.CreateItem(olMailItem)
Set myAttachments = myItem.Attachments
myAttachments.Add "C:\My Documents\Q496.xls", _
    olByValue, 1, "4th Quarter 1996 Results Chart"
