I have an outlook form in which I'm generating an email from values placed in the form at run time.  I want to do formatting for these values (Example, bold, indent, and change color).  I was looking at passing ascii characters in the vbscript code but I can't find the ascii values for any control character.  Any ideas?  Is this possible?

If you want to send formatted messages in Outlook 98 or Outlook 2000, a good method is to use HTML tags and set the HTMLBody property, rather than the Body property.

See http://www.slipstick.com/dev/formatmsg.htm for details and other methods.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!  I didn't see the code samples link.  I used the htmlbody property and now I'm kicking.  Thanks again!
