FaxDocument.Body property

The Body property provides the path to the file that comprises the body of a fax. The body of a fax consists of the fax pages other than the cover page.

This property is read/write.


Property Body As String

Property value

A String that specifies or receives the path to the body file.


Examples of documents that you can send as a fax body are a text file (.txt), a Microsoft Word document (.doc), or a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet (.xls). When you send a fax from a client computer, the body has to be associated with an application that is installed on that computer, and the application has to support the PrintTo verb; otherwise, the fax will fail.

Either the Bodies property or the Body property must be NULL. You must use Bodies if you will be submitting with either ConnectedSubmit2 or Submit2 (both available only in Windows Vista or later). You must use Body if you will be submitting with either ConnectedSubmit or Submit.
