Email form

Hi,

I'm looking to create a form that will let me enter details and then click send to send the email via Outlook 2002.

The way i'm looking to do this is...

--------
Subject: TEXT $RequestNo

Message:
TEXT
$RequestNo
$LocationCode
TEXT
$Message
TEXT
---------

So using the above as an example TEXT will be non-editable text, and the $RequestNo, $LocationCode and $Message fields will be data entered into 3 text boxes of that name.

There would then be a send button ($Send) that would send this as a new Outlook 2002 email to the email address the user has entered into the $SendTo textbox.

I currently have the form with the boxes with the names mentioned above but I don't know how to create code to do this, can someone help me out? I dont know how VB code uses variables, that's why i've just put $ before the field names to mark them out.

Thanks,
Paul

Sorry forgot to say, it's an .exe form.

It's basically so I can use this form to send the same email template and set it to sit above my other windows, instead of keep loading the template email and then switching between windows to fill in the info.

Thanks,

I've tried using the send message part but I just get errors all over the place, can someone show me how to fit the code into my file with the names I'm using as to be honest I don't really know what I'm doing with the code.

Thanks,
Paul
