@mailsend question

(OP)
I am using @mailsend to include fields in the body of a email I would like to include a rich text field but as soon as i specify the field it stops working is there something diffent with RTF
thanks

RE: @mailsend question

Yes, there is.

If you are to check the @MailSend (with parameters) help documentation, this function only accepts fields of text or text list type for its bodyFields parameter.

On the otherhand, its use without parameters expects to have predetermined fields such as the SendTo, CopyTo, BlindCopyTo, Body (this one in rtf format), ... in the document to be sent.

Check Notes help for this.

RE: @mailsend question

You could try creating a hidden field in your document that computes an abstract of your rich text field using the following formula. You would then use this field in your @MailSend.

@If(@IsAvailable(RTField);@Abstract([Abbrev];100;"";"RTField");"")

This will give you the first 100 characters of your rich text field called RTField.

Just remember that the contents of a rich text field are not part of the document until it is saved.

Hope this helps
