    Emailing a letter in Filemaker 11

    imartinez

      I have a problem I hope I can get help with.

       

      I have created a layout that represents a letter to be sent out to suppliers. The original user requirement was that they wanted to Print the letter and send it in the mail(USPS) to the supplier. Now the user would like to e-mail the layout/letter to the vendor from their e-mail client. I told the user they could "Print" the record as a PDF to the e-mail message and send the e-mail with an attached PDF of the letter. However, the user did not like this option and simply wanted the layout/letter to appear in the message.

      In my attempt to solve this I have used the Send Mail script and was able to get an e-mail box to pop-up with the vendor name, but I have no idea on how to get the contents of the layout/letter inside the Message.

       

      Does someone know how to do this?

       

      Thanks for your help.
