Convert VBA to Javascript

Recommended Posts

I am a complete novice, but I am hoping for some expertise. I am trying to convert my Microsoft access database to Caspio. I am stuck trying to initiate something like the following which i use successfully in access to auto send invoices and statements via email.

The vba code is below

Public Function EmailInv()
On Error Resume Next

DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "InvoiceCustomer", acFormatPDF, "G:\Shared drives\Office\Invoices\" & Forms!frmMain!JobNumber & ".pdf"
DoCmd.Close acReport, "InvoiceCustomer", acSaveNo

Dim OApp As Object, OMail As Object, signature As String
Set OApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set OMail = OApp.CreateItem(0)
With OMail
End With
signature = OMail.HTMLBody
With OMail
'.To = "someone@somedomain.com"
'.Subject = "Type your email subject here"
.To = Forms!frmMain.Form![Text245]
.Attachments.Add ("G:\Shared drives\Office\Invoices\" & Forms!frmMain!JobNumber & ".pdf")
.Subject = "Invoice from Perth Rewind Industries for " & Forms!frmMain!CustomerName & ""
.HTMLBody = "Please see the attached Invoice for Job " & Forms!frmMain!JobNumber & "" & vbNewLine & signature
End With
Set OMail = Nothing
Set OApp = Nothing
End Function

Can anyone help me in regards to this?

Hello @Paul160,

As far as I know, when importing MS Access files to Caspio, it is possible to import only tables and relationships. 

Other functionality should be recreated using Caspio features. 

As for emails, there are 3 options to set them in Caspio:

1) On DataPages: the email is sent when the data is submitted or updated/deleted depending on the DataPage type.

You may want to review these articles:




2) Using Triggered Actions: the email can be sent when the data is inserted/updated/deleted in the table https://howto.caspio.com/tables-and-views/triggered-actions/

3) Using Tasks: the email can be sent on-demand or based on a predefined schedule https://howto.caspio.com/tasks/

Hope this helps.
