Emailing a data file

Scroll Prev Top Next More

There are two ways of emailing a VT Transaction+ data file:

Choose the Send As Email Attachment command from the File menu of VT Transaction+. This method will only work if your email program is set as your default mail program in Windows. It does not work for web browser based email accounts

Manually attach the file in your email program. The exact method depends on your email program, but in general, you create an email and click on the attach button. This button normally has an image of a paperclip or the word 'Attach' on it. After clicking the attach button, you are asked to select the file from your PC that you want to attach. Go to the folder containing the VT Transaction+ data file and select it.

Please note that in order to send an email, you must have a MAPI compliant mail program installed as the default mail program on your PC as explained in Emailing from VT Transaction+.

Please also refer to Receiving a data file by email.

If the file is too large for your email program

You can compress the file by going to the folder on Windows where your file is saved, right-clicking on the file and selecting Send To>Compressed (Zipped) Folder (Show more options>Send To>Compressed (Zipped) Folder in Windows 11).

Send to compressed

Sharing a data file

Whilst you are able to email a data file, an easier method of sharing the file with someone else is to save the file to a cloud based drive installed on your PC and share the file to another person's account on the same cloud service. For more details please refer to the guidance here.
