Sending HTML link via sendmail

Working on a project that brings up a form dependent on the criteria that the user inputs.  Am capturing this data in order to send email to another user that will point in to this same form.  The hyperlink will change for each user depending on what path they need to follow.
I need to find a way to send a hyperlink thru the sendmail funcion.
So far it looks like all I can send is text, but I need the link to be 'clickable' so the user can go directly from their mail to the page.  I know how to do it in an ASP page, but we need this functionality thru SQL for other aspects of the project.  Any ideas?

Hi,

Above source code is not to nice so :

Hi,

Use option

MyMail.BodyFormat = 0 (for HTML)
MyMail.BodyFormat = 1 (for TEXT)



For example :

Set myMail = CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")  
HTML = "<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC ""-//IETF//DTD HTML//EN"">" & NL
HTML = HTML & "<html>" HTML = HTML & "<head>"
HTML = HTML & "<meta http-equiv=""Content-Type"""
HTML = HTML & "HTML = HTML & ""content=""text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"">"""
HTML = HTML & "<title>Sample Mail</title>" HTML = HTML & "</head>"
HTML = HTML & "<body>"
HTML = HTML & "This is a sample message being sent using HTML. <BR></body>"
HTML = HTML & "</html>"  

myMail.From = "Example@Microsoft.com"
myMail.To = "Someone@Company.com" myMail.Subject = "Sample Message"
myMail.BodyFormat = 0
myMail.MailFormat = 0
myMail.Body = HTML
myMail.Send
Set myMail = Nothing

Hope this helps.

I don't know what is the relation between your question and the answer and SQL server.

can you explain!!!!!

The answer that was given can be inputed into the trigger that will fire when the database is updated.  I had a trigger that would fire a text email to the designated user, but I needed one that would format the message in HTML so that the links that were sent would be 'clickable'.  The above answer gives me this option.
Does that help?? :)

I know that this code can send an HTML mail may be in VB or in ASP, but I wonder how you can run it from a trigger. As far as I know I don't think you can use CreateObject in MS SQL procedure or trigger, unless you are working with a different SQL server. You can call com objects from a stored proc but not in this way.
