      inserting specific calculations in email script

      Post

      I am using FM9 pro, and the os is windows xp.

       

      I have created a script that will send email to customers.

       

      I am now attempting to specify fields within the email text, and cannot figure out the operators etc to pull from the db.

       

      For example, I want to insert a customers name and customer number within the email text.  Every calculation I create doesn't work.  Here's one example of what I have tried:

       

      "Dear  + Consumer Service Database::parent first   &   Exact ( Consumer Service Database::parent first ; Consumer Service Database::parent first )"

       

      I am new to FileMaker (hopefully you won't laugh at my attempts), and would like to get this completed soon.  Somehow, I just can't figure this out.

       

      thanks!
