Hello All,

So I have a file I want to Fax through my Canon MF8100 Fax Driver. Normally to fax from our desk we would choose the "Printer" that is the Fax, and hit print. It does the little thing where it says it's printing and then a message box pops up (probably created by Canon's Fax Driver Software) that asks for the recipient name, number, etc., and I would fill it out and send it off. I would *LOVE* to be able to do this automatically via VBA code that uses this info (which is already in the spreadsheet where you would choose to fax from) and just sends it once the user asks it to be done, by say pushing a button... can I? I have figured out how to send an email through this using the Outlook Object Library... is there a similar Canon Fax Driver object library i just need to find??

Not sure how to control the fax driver and tell it what to do...

please note: I realized if I signed up for an efax I could use Outlook to do this, but I would like to avoid this if possible.

Thanks!
