Very Urgent! We need to send E-Mails ....

Recommended Posts

We need to send E-Mails from within a filemaker runtime aplication on Win32 platforms. Moreover we need to attach a specific file to the mails we send. The only way we can locate this file is by using a relative path to the database we are currently working in (we will place it in the same folder but we don't know the absolute path!).

Of course we already tried some plug ins (dbMailer and SMTP.it), but we didn't find a way to attach the file as we don't know the absolute path to it.

Does anybody have a solution??? Thank you very much for replying... from within a filemaker runtime aplication on Win32 platforms. Moreover we need to attach a specific file to the mails we send.

FM 5.5 has an send email script step which will bring up your default email composition form and you can choose a file to send while in the email form. If it is always the same file, the script step has a "attach file" checkbox which will always send that file.

Hi

This calculation returns the absolute path to your file, without the file name.

Left(Status(CurrentFilePath), Position(Status(CurrentFilePath), Status(CurrentFileName), Length(Status(CurrentFileName)), 1)-1)
