As you have discovered, you cannot email a layout to someone. You can either construct a calculation that puts this info, both the content of selected fields and their labels in the body of the email as plain text, or you can save a PDF of your layout and attach the PDF to your email.
Your calculation for the body of the email might include an expression such as this:
"Type of Equipment: " & YourTable::EquipmentType
Ok calculations are over my head I was hoping there would be a box to check to send the text along with the feild info. D you know of a better solution for what I am trying to do?
