Outlook To and Subject Bar in Word RRS feed

  • Question

  • In word 2010 I have a document that the top looks like an outlook email.  It has a to bar and a subject bar.  It also has a send button.  The person who created this document is not around anymore and I'm trying to do some work to it.  Does anyone know how to create a word document that you can send as an email not using save and send but instead directly typing who it goes to in the to box in word?

  • Any document can be sent this way but I'm not sure it can be set up through the UI any more (but that may depend on your e-mail client).
     
    To show the e-mail 'envelope' using VBA, press Alt+F11 to open the VBE, Press Ctrl+G to switch to the Immediate Pane, type "ActiveWindow.EnvelopeVisible=True" (without the quotes), press Enter, then press Alt+F4 to close the VBE.

  • Hi,

    First you should Enable the Developer tab in Word, then create Macro and create a button for the macro and so on.

    This can be achieved based on VBA. Try to view the follow article.
