Sending email with record information


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to generate email that appears in a similar or (hopefully) exact format as one of my layout designs, complete with information from a specific record and I'm having problems writing a script for this action. Does anybody know a good way to generate this type of email?

Actually, I'm trying to set up a notification system to send record information to people who don't necessarily have a copy of FileMaker. I've been experimenting with making a calculation field to display combinations of text and field values but I'm not having any luck.


Do you think there's really a solution for this?

Set Variable [$pdfpath, Get(DesktopPath & "/Attach.PDF"]

If [Get(SystemPlatform = 2]

... Set Variable [$pdfpath, "filewin:/"& Middle ($pdfpath, 2, Length ($pdfpath))]

End If

Save Records as PDF [current record, no dialog, $pdfpath]

Send Mail [To=YourTable::emailAddress Subject = "whatever" Attachment=$pdfpath]



that ought to work. They'd have Acrobat Viewer or Apple Preview, wouldn't they? (who doesn't?)
