Formatting in SendMail Message Box

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am using FM 10 Send Mail. In the message box I have placed the following information:

"Dear "&applicants::first&" "&applicants::last&",¶¶" &

"Congratulations on your appointment as an ALC Elementary Nurse for Summer Session 2009. You will be working for the following program(s): " & applicants::SITE_ASSIGN1_NAME & applicants::SITE_ASSIGN2_NAME

The applicants first-last fields are text fields and I am having no problems formatting a SPACE between them .

The Applicant Site Assign fields are calculation fields and while I do see the field information when sending the email and I am having no luck trying to format 1SPACE between SITE_ASSIGN1 and SITE_ASSIGN2 ....

How do I do that ?

Thanks,

Jim

Shouldn't it be...

"Dear " & applicants::first & " " & applicants::last & ",¶¶" &

"Congratulations on your appointment as an ALC Elementary Nurse for Summer Session 2009. You will be working for the following program(s): " & applicants::SITE_ASSIGN1_NAME [color:purple]& " " & applicants::SITE_ASSIGN2_NAME

Well, the calculation you posted does not HAVE a space between them, whereas your first & " " & last does.

Hi,

You guys are genius ...that did the trick ....

now ...How do I "slip" back into narrative text after the last field formatting SITE_ASSIGN2

i.e.

SITE_ASSIGN2_NAME SometextSometextSometextometext

What goes in-between the field SITE_ASSIGN and Sometext :?

Thanks for your help and quick replies....

SITE_ASSIGN2_NAME & " some text "

Basically any literal text should be in quotes...

The '&' sign "connects" the fields, functions, and literal text.
