I know how to make a button to initiate emailing a record and populate the TO box.

Send Email and populate the To Box


URLRoot() & "db/" & Dbid() & "?a=GenEmailRecord&rid=" & [Record ID#] 
& "&tolist=" & List(", ",UserToEmail([R/S User 1]), UserToEmail([R/S User 2]))

Insert &dfid=11 to force a form
?a=GenEmailRecord&&dfid=11&rid=




... does anyone know how to make a similar button to pop up that screen to email a report and populate any of the fields (TO, Subject, Body)?

did you get this working Mark?  I'm trying to put a button on a record that will email an embedded report to an e-mail address that is saved in a field in that record.

Why not just email the record and it will send with its embedded report on it.  Or have a special form to slim down the form to just the embedded report.
