script step EMAIL and Groupwise
Posted on 2004-11-08
we are running windows xp, novell groupwise 5.5 enhanced and filemaker pro 7.0.v3.
i have a script for emailing all the setup information for a new record added in the database for to a specific user for verification.
the email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
i have set the To: field to Specify email address and typed in the full email address
i have setup a global field in the database with the full email address as the content and set the To: field to Specify Field to get the information from this field
i have set the To: field to Specify calculation and had the field name in the calulation result.
i checked the perform without dialog box, but when i run the script it always stops at the new message screen and prompts for an email address. the email address on the new message screen is blank.
i also tried to have the message body in the script pull the pertinent fields through Specify Calculation but nothing gets put in the message box.
i have exported the info into a html file and attached it to the message in the script and that works.
any ideas on why the email script step is not allowing me to pull information from the current record and insert it into the email?
