      How to produce an email that contains merged field

      Post

      Hi all,

       

      I'm new to filemaker, so I'm having a little trouble searching for an answer to this seemingly easy and standard usage. I appreciate any help.

       
      I just want to send emails to a list of recipient telling each one some specific information that is different from each one. I could manage to do so by using File>Send Mail... menu, however, I could not figure out how to format the message body, the following is what I've tried:
       
      "Dear " & Name & ", "
      &
      "Your score is " & Score & "." 
       

      The resulted email looks like this:

       

      Dear XYX, Your score is 78. 
       

      I do not know how to put the text in an newline and the syntax is ugly. I'm sure there should be an easier way to do this kind of thing but I just could not find out where should I begin. Would somebody tell me where should I look at the manual so to figure out how to it in the "Filemaker's way"? 

       

      Thanks for reading.
