Having Problems Including Field Names With Text in Email Send Option

Post

Hello,

I am trying to send an email with the field name for a VENDOR NAME, but when I try to mimic the example here:

http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/7133/~/send-mail-via-smtp-in-filemaker-pro-11

File Maker Pro 11 gives me an error: "The specified field cannot be found." (FMP is highlighting everything from VENDOR_NAME down).

My Email text is this (in the email message):

VENDORS::VENDOR_NAME

We are happy to hear from you.

-----------------------

If I click OK, that's when I get the error.

If I remove all the text other than VENDORS:VENDOR_NAME, then it works, but that isn't what I want.

Looking at the example at the URL above, I'm not sure how what I'm doing is any different from that example.

Suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!
