Default How do you add a line from a fillable word document into a VBA that you are using to email out

Hi everyone,

How do you add a line from a fillable word document into a VBA that you are using to email out that said document?

I have a VBA but I want to enter the name of the person completing the form from a line in the form into the body text of the email. (if that makes sense)

my VBA is:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim OL As Object
Dim EmailItem As Object
Dim Doc As Document

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set OL = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set EmailItem = OL.CreateItem(olMailItem)
Set Doc = ActiveDocument
Doc.Save



With EmailItem
.Subject = "Referral"
Dim sMsgBody As String
sMsgBody = sMsgBody & "Dear Team" & vbCr & vbCr
sMsgBody = sMsgBody & "Please find attached my completed referral form for a woman to your services" & vbCr & vbCr
sMsgBody = sMsgBody & "Kind Regards," & vbCr
.body = sMsgBody
.To = "person@person.com"
.Importance = 1
.Attachments.Add Doc.FullName
.Send

End With

Application.ScreenUpdating = True

Set Doc = Nothing
Set OL = Nothing
Set EmailItem = Nothing

End Sub

What are you using as the "fillable" field? If you use as content controls titles say "Author" then you could use:

Code:
sMsgBody = sMsgBody & "Please find attached my completed referral form for a woman to your services" & vbCr & vbCr
     sMsgBody = sMsgBody & "Kind Regards," & vbCr
sMsgBox = sMsgBody & Doc.SelectContentControlsByTitle("Author").Item(1).Range.Text

     .body = sMsgBody

@gmaxey
Thank you for this, I was using content controls so I changed the tag to author.
It didn't work initially but noticed you had a typo (smsgbox) that I changed and works perfectly

I believe that "Author" is the name of a built-in Document Property Content Control that you could use instead. See Repeating Data Using Document Properties Content Controls and Other Mapped Content Controls.
It is filled with whatever would normally show up in the Author Document Property unless changed. On my documents, it is my Word username by default.


You could also get that name from the system if you do not want it changed by the user.
