It would be awesome if someone could help me with this. If I need to break it up into more questions, I will.

Ultimately what I am looking for is a button that will send an email through outlook to a client about their children.

Attached I have a Microsoft Access database… when you click the button “OC” in the top right, it will open a form…. Saved “MemoFormOC”

I am looking for a button on this page that will do the following:
1.)      Open another form were we can enter the kids names and ages entering onto the “MemoChildren” table
2.)      Click a button that will send the email that is attached in word.

 Also… there is a field in the email that is “CoachesBioLink”. This is from the table InstructorBio. Depending on who the instructor is on the first form, will determine what link this is too.

One more thing... if possible can the subject of the email say "What <SWIMMER> will learn in swim lessons"?

This is more like a project request than a request  for help ...

To open a form, use code like this:

Docmd.OpenForm "MemoFormOC"

If you need to pull data for emails, you can do it in several ways. For example, you can open a Recordset to get information:

Dim sEmail As String
Dim rst As DAO.Recordset

Set rst = Currentdb.OpenRecordset("SELECT * FROM SomeTable")

sEmail = rst("SwimmerName") & " - Thanks for contacting us today. We'll send you some information at your address below:" & vbCrLf &  vbCrLf & rst("Street") & vbCrLF & rst("City") & ", " rst("State") & "  " & rst("Zip")

To send an email you can  use SendObject:

DoCmd.SendObject acSendNoObject, , ,  rst("Email"), , , "What " & rst("SwimmerName") & " will learn", sEmail
