 Fields within E-mail?
I own a Fast Lube and want to reminder my customers that their car is due
for servicing every three months. Can you place fields within the body of
the e-mail message. For people with more than one car, it would be nice to
say- "Mr. Smith" your "Ferrari" is due for servicing - or - "Mr.Green"
your "Escort" is due for servicing-.I am a G3 Mac user and using Claris E
mailer Lite that came with the system.
Thanks for any help!!!

 Fields within E-mail?

(original question follows reply)

Robin, of course you can do this... It's FileMaker Pro! Just create a
calculated field that concatenates the body text of your message with the
contents of the various fields you wish to intersperse. Guts of the calculation
would look something like this:

Title & " " & Lastname & ", your " & Vehicle & " is due for service. Please
drop by at your earliest convenience. Last service was at " & Mileage & "
miles. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the near
future."

This is where "Title" is a field containing Mr., Mrs., etc., where Vehicle is
the customer's car, truck, etc., where Mileage is the last visit's mileage on
record for that customer, etc.

You can make the calculated field pretty long, interspersing lots of fields in
it. Just tell FileMaker to use this field for the body of your email.
