    Email record



      Email record


           I'm using the demo  version and attempting to email a single record from a table. The email is sent but the current record is not.  Is there some activity I need to perform before emailing a record?

               Send mail sends plain text to the recipient. It can't send a "current record". You can either set up a calculation for the body of the email that combines data from various fields in the current record or you can attach either a PDF or a snap shot link as an attachment to the email.

               Thus, many FileMaker scritps for emailing data first use save as PDF to generate a pdf of the record and a specific layout and then attach that PDF to the email.

               There are also a number of plug ins that offer additional options for sending email from FileMaker that you can web search and evaluate.
