I have an email button that is working properly. I would like it to start referencing the clients first name in the heading. Below is some of the code. Instead of saying "<HTML>Dear Big Arms Swimmers Client,<BR><BR><BR>" . I'd like it to say "Dear <CLIENTFIRSTNAME>

How would I reference that information in the form?



Private Sub Command108_Click()
Dim objOutlook As Object, objEmailMessage As Object

Dim sSubj As String, sBody As String
sSubj = "Swim Lesson Policy at Coto Valley Country Club"


sBody = "<HTML>Dear Big Arms Swimmers Client,<BR><BR><BR>" _
            & "<P>Thanks for signing up for swim lessons at Coto Valley Country Club, " _
            & "we are sure you are going to enjoy your experience at one of the premier country clubs " _
            & "in the area. Your purchase of swim lesson will allow your child the opportunity use " _
            & "the pool during the allotted swim lessons time.</P><BR>The country club is designed to " _
            & "be very affordable option for local families (both in and outside of the gates " _

If  the form containing this button already contains client information, you can refer to the ClientFirstName field directly like this:


sBody = "<HTML>Dear " & Me.[txtFirstName] & ",<BR><BR><BR>" _

Open in new window



Replace txtFirstName with the actual name of the textbox containing your client first name

that is where you set the criteria to get the correct Name form the records..
it could be the unique ID that is currently displayed in your form

strFirstName=dlookup("FirstName", "tableName","ID=" & me.ID)
