Experts,
I create an email using vbs, an access db and the outlook client.  I have an automated text email, and I just build a long string and have returns and tabs etc, using Chr(13),chr(10), chr(9), etc.  However, is there something I can do to underline text.  Right now I just do a bunch of ---------, but that looks really bad.  Is there a way to underline text in my string without using --------?  Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike

if the e-mail being sent is html format you can try embedding html tags:


<u>Text to be underlined goes here</u>
