    mailto command (2000)

    I am trying to use the mailto command in Access and include some text in the body of the email but it appears not to be working.

    I am sure am using the correct syntax.
    I would appreciate it if you could inform me if this is possible in Access.

    Thanks
    Justin.

    That is the problem. You should insert an =, just like there is an = between subject and Documents for Review.

    I have placed the '=' sign where you mentioned but still appear to get an error.

    Works for me (see screenshot). If you press F2 while in the hyperlink field, what do you see? (the string may be longer than what is displayed)

    Re: mailto command (2000)

    Exactly how are you executing this hyperlink? Did you make it the hyperlink address property of a command button? And is there any Help to be found on the mailto command options? I can't seem to make it work properly. For one thing, when I hit the "..." next to the hyperlink property in property sheet and fill-in a subject line, the resulting string in hyperlink address contains ?subject, and not the &subject you showed. Also, only the first word of the subject string gets placed in my e-mail message. But maybe much of this is a function of my e-mail client (I don't use Outlook).

    OK, I'll admit my extreme ignorance. What is "a simple mouse rollover"?

    When you have a hyperlink and move the mouse over it the hyperlink changes colour and/or an underline appears on the hyperlink.

    Re: mailto command (2000)

    I realize you resolved your issue. But I was trying to find out more about using "mailto". I can find no Help on the topic, and trying to duplicate what you did doesn't work for me. As I mentioned, the use of &subject= doesn't work, it must be ?subject=; and even then only the 1st word is place in subject line.

    And what is "a simple mouse rollover"?

    Re: mailto command (2000)

    See attached for any example of the mailto command.

    A 'simple mouse rollover' is when you move the mouse over a hyperlink and it changes colour.
    I know how to do this in html but not in MS Access.

    Justin.

    Your attachment really wasn't much help. It doesn't show which properties were used, just the values of the properties.
