E-mail from filemaker

I used the previously posted information to enable filemaker files to be emailed from Outlook/Entourage and it works like a dream - even the url code for hard returns works great too.... I have only one problem, if my copy to be e-mailed contains the "&" symbol (ie: B&W, or R & S) the e-mail contents end just before that point.

Is there a way to automate the changing of a symbol/character within a field without altering the rest of the contents.

Thanks

Try using the Substitute function to replace the "&" symbol with the URL code for it. Of course, that means you need to know what that code is. It might be "&" but I'm not sure.

The external functions in Web Companion perform these:

External("Web-To-HTML", fieldname)

External("Web-To-HTTP", fieldname)

To be honest I dunno the difference between HTML and HTTP encoding, except it's different. ;-)

Coming from you Chuck I'll take that as a compliment.

I'm going to have to work harder, your post count is catching up to mine... ;-)
