Need way to edit vb.net form values that have been sent to email address.

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.

Do you have InfoPath?

Yes I have InfoPath, but unfortunately my superior has ruled out using that application as a solution. Therefore, I must attempt to resolve this with code if possible.

Lol! The answer was right under my nose the whole time! I have embedded the form layout html markup into the email message that gets sent out along with the form values the user enters.

The email that gets sent out is formatted exactly the way I wanted it and now the user only has to 'Forward' the email message and he/she can now edit the form values and then forward the message to the appropriate person or group.

Thank you for trying anyhow Bob. I appreciate it.
