Need way to edit vb.net form values that have been sent to email address.
Posted on 2006-06-26
I have a vb.net web form that sends its values to an email address. I have been asked to see if there is a way to modify the form so that the user who receives the email can edit the form values and then forward the modified values to another email address (without having to save the file locally first). In addition, for printing purposes, the email that the user receives must be formatted to look exactly like the web form, including the form values. Is this even possible?
My current page sends the form values to a pre-formatted .htm file that is created on our server. An email (with a ink pointing to the formatted .htm file) is then sent to the user. I have tried converting the .htm file to a .doc file and then attaching the file but the attached file is read-only and cannot be edited. I also embedded the form results w/ html markup so the email is formatted like the web form but again the email is are not editable.
Email Server: Exchange 2003
Code Language: VB.net
Thanks in advance. Please let me know if you have any questions.
