      Can 'Send Mail' script auto attach a PDF of a record?

      Post

      I am trying to put into the ONE script a series of commands like this.

       

      Get the e-mail address of the client in this record,

      Create  a PDF of the record,

      Run Mail

      paste the e-mail recipeint's address into to 'TO' field

      Add any comments to the e-mail

      Attach the created PDF document.

       

      All in the one script.

       

      Here's what I can do:

      I can attach a PDF of a record to a Blank e-mail.   But the 'TO' field in Mail is not automatically filled in. Nor are other fields.
       
      I can use 'Send Mail' and automatically fill in the 'TO' field the 'Subject' field and the 'Comments' field. But cannot automatically attach a PDF of a record in the process.

       

      Here's my problem.

       

      I cannot combine the features in the 'Send Mail' script with an ability to automatically attach a PDF of a record. (I don't wish to send records to multiple recipients) The 'Attach file' in the Send Mail script makes the user go looking around his system to find a file that may have been previously created. But the file I want is simply a PDF of a record within my DataBase. 

       

      It's frustrating because I know my request is simple and I know the program must be capable of doing it. Sorry I'm so thick.
