Title

Exporting/Emailing Files

Post

     Hi All!

     So what I would like is to export and email files from my database including the dtabase file itself.

      

     EXPORTING

     I have a container field in my database that the user can use to hold a file in the database

     i have a layout with buttons on it and one is being used to export this file

     is there a way to have the button run a script that allows the user to save the file to anywhere on their computer?

     is there also a way to have the user be able to click a button that allows them to save the database itself to the computer or an external drive?

      

     EMAILING

     in the same veign as above i would like the user to be able to email both these files to anyone.

     the database has a table with contacts including people's emails

     is there a way to have the user click the button and have a popup dialog ask if they would like to email someone in the contact list or a new person

     essentally i would like the user to click a button and then be able to select one or multiple recipients from the contact list or be able to type in a new email.

     after reciepients have been selected i would like the file in the container field to become attached to the email

     if the user clicks another button and after reciepients have been selected i would like the database to become attached to the email

      

     is this possible?

      

     thank you!
