I would like to know what type of string I would add to
a login form that would automatically send e-mail to an
address once the user logs in?

Note: I'm not VB programmer and have limited knowledge
I do know how to use the Wizard however....Thanks

Will that allow me to automate that command? and also will I need some sort of background or will I be totally oblivious to what I'm doing?

Thanks for the quick response...

yes, you need some code in the background i.e. for example your login command button which will send the mail. if you want the code let me know,
