    Yes, any table with an e-mail field can be an address book.

    Default How?

    Tom, believe it or not, I am for the very first time learning to incorporate emailing into an app. (I've never needed it before!)

    Here's the scenario I'm working with. I have an invoice, or one of several test reports, or a statement that I want to email to a client.

    So far, I just use the option to email from the report at preview time. It brings up the Alpha email client, where you type in an email address.

    I guess what I need to do is when they push the button, prompt them for an email address (with a default array populated from emails for that client,) print the report to a file, and then using xbasic send the email.

    I'm a little green with this, but I think the "save to file" always uses the report name as the saved name.

    Anyway, any ideas appreciated.
