    Sending mails macro vbs

    Jose Tos

      I have the next issue:


      I'm able to send mails with a macro using customer smtp server through Qlikview Desktop, I have a windows task to reload my document and a trigger that executes my macro after reload, I know this works because part of my macro exports to excel a few tables, the problem is sending mails part of the macro, that doesn´t work and I don't know why, the user that executes the task has mail account of the customer SMTP server.


      I don´t know why is working fine through Qlikview Desktop and  not working through windows task....


      Any help, please??

          I have the same problem had. Problem seems to be that that CDO.Message requires run with priority and not as background process. Change the task parameter from /r  to  /l in your batch file.


          REM /r = open+reload+save+close as background process  /l = open+reload+save with GUI

          "D:\QlikView_Client\QV.exe" /l "D:\YOURFILE.qvw"

              Hi Marcus, I've tried your solution but the task doesn´t finish ...


              /r = open+reload+save+close

              /l = open+reload+save     and close??? Could be that the problem??


              Thank you

                      I don´t think so because the task remain in execution indefinitely ...

                      I'm waiting feedback of my customer, I have no access to the mail account.


                      This is my code:


                      sub ExportarAgendas

                      '/////////// end export code////////////////'


                      ' Below mailing code


                      Set objMsg = CreateObject("CDO.Message")

                      Set msgConf = CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")



                      ' Server Configuration

                      msgConf.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2

                      msgConf.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") = "servername"

                      msgConf.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport") = 25

                      objMsg.To = MailToVar 

                      MailFromVar= ActiveDocument.Variables("From").GetContent. String

                      objMsg.From =  MailFromVar



                      objMsg.Subject = "blablablabla"

                      objMsg.HTMLBody = "blablablabla"

                      objMsg.Sender = " "

                      objMsg.AddAttachment "Path\Document.xls"

                      objMsg.AddAttachment "Path\Document.xls"

                      objMsg.AddAttachment "Path\Document.xls"

                      Set objMsg.Configuration = msgConf



                      ' Send




                      'msgbox "enviado"


                      Set objMsg = nothing

                      Set msgConf = nothing

                          I use this code for sending mails an I use this not from the data application, but from a control application, which run per loop through a lot of data applications and execute various reloads+export+send.


                          ActiveDocument.closedoc (original newdoc.closedoc) --> is here wrong, then it made to closed the data application and without ActiveDocument the quit-order will failed

                              Hi Marcus, thanks for your help, it was very usefull.


                              Finally, I could send mails, but the reason why I couldn´t was because the execution in background resets security of the module, so I needed to allow access to the system in module security and local security.

                              If you don´t allow access in modul security, local security is reset to safe mode, but if you do, local security is saved.


                              Regards and thank you!
