hi guys,.. am trying to get this asp form to send the information it has to me, however.. i keep running in to brick walls, as it returns fine, just with no information. so you can imagine its not ideal.

anyway, ill supply the code here, i know its to do with the av_sent.asp file, i just cant figure out where as the cdoMessage.Textbody line confuses me. i have all these feilds that need information to be attached to them and im coming up short.

cheers in advance.

nyall

this is the av_sent.asp

<%
theSchema="http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/"

cdoMessage.From=request.form("emailAddress")
cdoMessage.To="itservices@someplace.org.uk"
cdoMessage.Subject=request.form("name")
cdoMessage.TextBody=request.form("body")

cdoMessage.Send

It looks like you're assigning the TextBody property of your CDO message to Request.Form("body") and you don't have an input element on your form named body. You'll want to do something like this...

Dim strBody
strBody = "Required Equipment: " & Request.Form("requirement")
cdoMessage.TextBody = strBody

Make sense? If not just let us know.

thanks for the reply,

i kinda understand, i realised it had to do with that section of the html, i just lack the understanding of how to include all of the text fields, rather 'glue' them together so it sends all the info. ill give it a bash with what you suggested, although i have to admit i get easily confused, especially about the textbody line

cheers

nyall

p.s

this may sound stupid.. but ill never know otherwise. can i not just add the names of the txt fields to the code.. like..

cdoMessage.From=request.form("emailAddress")
cdoMessage.To="itservices@someplace.org.uk"
cdoMessage.Subject=request.form("name")
cdoMessage.Required equipment =request.form("required")
cdoMessage.TextBody=request.form("body")

eg^

cheers

It doesn't really work like that. The TextBody (or HTMLBody) is the only property that will be included as the body of the email. So you will want to assign everything that you want in the email body to one of those properties. You can use the format below to do this:

cdoMessage.TextBody = "Required Equipment: " & Request.Form("required") & vbNewLine

'use the following line as a guide when adding more fields to the email, not the previous line

cdoMessage.TextBody = cdoMessage.TextBody & "Additional Information: " & Request.Form("moreinfo") & vbNewLine

Hope this cleared it up for you.

many thanks mate, i will endevour to use what you hve written to try and get this form off the ground, tho im sure ill end up confused again heh

cheers
