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.
