FM - Continued Weirdness with Client Email Buttons

Thought I had it fixed, but didn't.  I have a button/script that emails a file and leaves Outlook open to type a customized email (see screen print).  However, when I click on it, a folder opens firsts that says "Desktop", then the email window opens.  However, this usually happens the first time and not on subsequent tests.

I also cannot get it to consistently to work if no file exists ( I want a dialogue box to come up and indicate that no file exists), though a set of buttons that simply open the file (without emailing) work fine:  they open if they exist and show a dialog box if no file is present.

Try disabling OpenURL, my guess is that you see the Desktop folder stop opening. If so, at least you know what's causing it.

Arghh, so easy.  I thought I had put the OpenURL within an IF statement.
