Open email in HTML format


S

Sunflower

I have the following...
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Form- frmWOEDIT

Command Button- cmdSendAproval


Macro Name- cmdEmailRequesterTo : On Click

Action- SendObject

To- =IIf([DEPTID]="90","Name1; Name2; Name3; Name4; Name5",[Requestor]
& ";Name1; Name2; Name3")

Cc- =IIf([DEPTID]="90","Name6; Name7","Name6")

Subject- ="APPROVAL for WO#" & [WOID] & " - " & [ProjectName]

Message Text- ="Please Proof WO#" & [WOID] & " - " & [ProjectName] &
" - Reply to this email with any changes or approval by 3 p.m. on " &
Format(Date()+1,"dddd mmm dd,yyyy")

Edit Text- Yes
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This all works...except it opens as plain text
What I need it to do is open as HTML format for pasting a screen
capture into the body.

All and any help much appreciated

Sunflower,

I am sorry, the SendObject action/method does not support HTML format
emails.

You could save your screen capture as an image file, and add it to the email
as an attachment.

Otherwise you will need to look at alternative ways of sending the emails.
For which, here is a useful starting point
