I have an item I am struggling to get a solution for and need a little help. I have a database which is used to handle BlackBerry orders I need to figure out a way for an end user receiving a letter from the DB to be able to submit forms for people with their office. Basically this would be a manager who has the option to submit forms for people within his staff to be offered the option to purchase a BlackBerry. I am struggling for a way to allow them to enter just the basic information about the people on his team.

I am thinking that maybe I can do some code in a button on the email that will create a dialog box that will have the minimum fields they need to complete and then just a submit button, which will take the information gathered and drop the value down to the underlying order form. This form is saved and I could put some code to send a tracer that the item has been submitted. The trick is getting the code elements together that will allow this to be a basic 2-3 field popup to the user and then just submit and the rest happens behind the scenes.

Is this something that may be possible? I have done stuff similar, just never had it open the form, drop the data onto the form and save it without the user even knowing.
