How to include field AND text in email


Recommended Posts

I'm using Filemaker 5.5 and I know how to create an email in it but is there a way to include my customers name in the body message?


I'm using "Send Mail" script.

To: Field Value: blah blah

Subject: blah blah

Message: This is where I'd like it to say: Dear(Customer Name field) blah blah blah


Is this even possible in 5.5?

Set Field [g.GlobalTextField, "Dear "&CustomerName&": blah blah blah"]

Send Mail [To=EmailAddy; Subject=whatever; Message Text = g.GlobaTextField]

Thank you! That worked great with the exception that when I first tried it, I put in "Dear" instead of "Hello". Now when I test it, it says "Hello Dear...


Below is what I specified.


"Hello"&Bill To First Name&":¶¶Thanks for your order however the color was missing."


Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Opps! I figured it out. I accidentally had entered Dear in the customer name field along with the actual name. So the name was Dear Jane instead of just Jane.


Thanks again. I've been wanting to add this to my email for a long time, just didn't have a clue how to do it. smiley-smile
