SQL*XL API: TargetOutlook Object

TargetOutlook Object


Class clsTargetOutlook is a subclass of:



The TargetOutlook object implements the functionality to output data from SQL*XL to MS Outlook. The properties of TargetOutlook determine the way data is output to Outlook. To obtain a reference to the targetOutlook object use the Targets property of the SQLXL object. Example: SQLXL.Targets( litOutlook ).Headings = False

Physically, output is generated by the Statement objects notably the StmtDQL object that implements select statements. The execute method of the Statement outputs the data according to the setting of the Target property on the Statement. If Statement.Target = litOutlook then output will be generated in Outlook.

Recipient As String The email address where you want the email to be sent to.
