  4. Thanks for helping me bcooney. I appreciate it. scripts have to be started by clicking a button i believe?. I have a calc field that shows an error message as the result when someone enters data incorrectly. I would like this to then automatically send an e-mail to a designated address with a designated message rather than a human having to intervene by clicking a send button. Any ideas here please regards Col Taylor :
