    I have received a lot of help from this site in attaching word documents to
    emails, but unfortunately my clients want the word doc as the body of the
    email - I am struggling as they will not accept a text file. - any
    suggestions please? My clients are using Outlook and attaching docs is fine.

    I'm a bit confused here. A file can't be in the body of an email.
    The contents of that file as text can be in the body of an email as
    can formatted HTML but not a file. But a file, or files, can be
    attachments.

    So which is it?

    My clients have hundreds of word docs stored outside of access relating to
    businesses on the market. When they get enquiries from prospective customers
    they record them on the access db and email the respective details to the
    customer. However, they do not want the details as attachments because they
    assume the customer can change the word docs after saving them. This is why
    they wish the contents of the word doc (which can include photos) to be
    imbedded in the body of the email.

    Gotcha. Of course there's nothing stopping the recipient from copying
    the body of the email to Word and doing whatever they want.

    Umm, Embedded photo's. I know that can be done as I get spam with
    embedded graphics.

    You will need to use Automation to read the contents of the Word
    document file including the photo's. Exactly how that is done I'm not
    sure as I have no experience with Word. Excel I've done enough
    reading and writing of spreadsheets to be dangerous. I'd suggest
    asking in a Word VBA or programming newsgroup.

    Then you can create the body of the using HTML and send it off in that
    fashion. See the Outlook specific links at the Access Email FAQ at
    my website. http://www.granite.ab.ca/access/email/outlook.htm
