    Default Capture an email address in on depart event and generating an email to that person

    I will be doing some telephone marketing that includes information gathering. When I fill in their email address I'd like to automatically send them an email with a link to my website and with a Word document attached in the email.
    I'm not very good with variables but I assume this would entail the use of them as a first step in scripting.
    Any and all guidance appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Bill

    Where are you filling in the email address? One thought is that you are filling in fields on a form which is based on a table storing the information. You would then do something with the candepart event of this form field capturing its value, sending the email with the attachment.

    The email address is a field that is part of a form created for a single record for each client. I want each client, as I obtain their email address, to get a standard email containing the link to the website and a Word doc attachment.
    Thanks Stan,

    Try this. Put a word document named "Word Document.doc" in the directory where you unzip the table. Open the form, tab through the email address field.

    Much could be done to check to see that the necessary document is present. That the email address is at least properly formatted (xxx@nnn.bbb).

    Just gave you a start.
