I am a new user and I am sure there is a simple solution. I have a large database of volunteers that I want to personlize emails to so I select the SEND MAIL feature...I specify a field name in the message (Tech Contact::First Name). If I don't put any other text in the box it correctly inserts the first name corresponding to the appropriate email...however I don't know how to insert any other text. When I insert something after that it asks for an OPERATOR and if I insert for example "Hello....then the field name" it puts just that in the email "Hello TECH CONTACT::FIRST NAME" This could be the easiest thing ever but I can't figure it out and it is honking me off....please help.

anything that isn't enclosed in "" filemaker assumes to be a fieldname or a function call. So to do your task we would use the following (i've tried to mix and match a bit so you can get the idea.

"Hello " & TableName::FirstName & ",¶¶How are you today?¶¶Affectionatley Yours,¶¶" & Get(AccountName)
