Easy Addition Of Frequently-Used Attachment

Many Human Resource departments frequently send out the same document over and
over (brochures, word documents, policies, etc.) and it is very repetitive to
have to attach the file every time.
This is an easy button that is added to the *Memo form of the mail database
that with one click, will insert the document.
Open the default memo form in design mode, and create an action button titled
the name of the document you frequently attach.
(ie. "Send Brochure")

This is the code that goes with the action:

@Command( [EditInsertFileAttachment] ; "c:\\My Documents\\brochure.doc" )

Or, if the document is on a file server, it would go something like this:

@Command( [EditInsertFileAttachment] ; "\\\\ServerName\\ComputerName\\My
Documents\\brochure.doc" )
