Guys,

Im trying to send out an email using the Open URL script (im using this method coz' I want to execute it through IWP eventually)

My URL script reads

"mailto:[email protected]?Subject=Email&Body=" & Table::Text

The Table::Text is an unstored calculated field, which contains a number of fields (about 20) all seperated using the "carriage return symbol which is the third operator on the left column"

Although the script is working as it should, My fields in the body are a long string. What I'm after is a carriage return after each field in the calculation. Can anyone offer some sound advice?

Ooh I wish the SendMail command worked in IWP

Hi Guys,

Thanks for your replies, you suggestions work fine on a Mac using Safari & Mail, but on a PC using outlook express and I.E 6 its still the same old story - all one string?

Any other advice?

Okay, i tried it, it doesn't work. To get your original answer i googled:

"carriage return" mailto

this got me a fair few answers including the first one where i think microsoft discusses this issue. Try it...

I think you might need a CR/LF pair for Windows.

CR = %0D

LF = %0A

Looks like you'll need a conditional calculation for the current platform

Just checked Genx solution, see this

Thanks IdealData

The LF equivalent seems to work in the Windows world. I havent tried it on the Mac, but if it doesn't, I think I might and develop my simple web database using a different technology .
