I am a newbie to database programming, so please explain your answer thoroughly- thanx:)  I am starting to put together an intranet for the company I work for.  The heart of my problem lies at creating a directory with email search feature.  I can get the results to come up properly (FirstName, LastName, and EmailAddress), however, I would like the email address to hyperlink to the users mail program and automatically providing the email address in the TO: text box.  I have searched a long time for the solution to this problem, but have come up empty.  This is my last hope.  Thanx to all that attempt to help me.

I will assume the database recordset is called "RS" and the field name is called "EMail":

<A HREF="mailto:<%=rs("EMail")%>"><%=rs("EMail")%></A>

this will create an email link to the person with the email as a hyperlink.

Sorry MasseyM, but this did not work for me.  I am using FP98 if that makes a difference. This may be partly due to my lack of knowledge about setting up databases. I am guessing by viewing the code that my recordset is called fp_rs(i changed your code and tried it but that didn't work either).  Any further help is greatly appreciated, and I will be happy to give you the points the second it works!
