    Hello.
    If you have fax software setup on your system, it should be available as a print choice.

    Also if @ work and your work has a Fax setup
    linked to your network then just add this
    as another Printer Via the print setup.
    Kind Regards,

    We actually due the wages from one of our businesses in Excel and fax them off to a head office - we just use an el cheapo 'phone tools' program that I think was buried in Office somewhere, then Print> choose the fax/phone program to print to and Print 'selection'.

    Alternately, easiest is probably just to print 'Selection' or whatever is most appropriate for you, print the thing out and cram it in a good old fashioned fax machine!

    Cheers!

    We use a couple of excel models to do this, and have a client/server UNIX fax system with Windows clients, and as previously mentioned, use it as a printer. It doesn't have a command-line in Windows, so can't use3 it in VBA. I have it set in VBA to copy the fax number from the database (ODBC Link) ready for pasting into the number field of the Fax dialog box. Works fine.

    Yes, I agree. I have done the same and it worked great for me as well.
