    Email HTML using Access

    Hi folks,

    About to embark on another project in the database - HTML emails.

    I've done emailing before in Access however I'm thinking of having each email have a stock standard HTML template that I would write as a file and have Outlook pick up to use in the email.



    Any suggestions on how to get Outlook to pick up html - do I just build a html file using strings and then save as a file then somehow bring that in?

    I'm building in a field where I can paste in custom html and put some words like "replace_html_url" in the html

    then replace(string,"replace_html_url",me.txtCustomURL) and it goes replaces the URL's like email header image or etc in email with the jpeg link using a <img> tag

    This way I can go through and pick out html parts to customize...

    I'm making a test database first and will upload it for you to check it out.
