Data Assist

I have made all my admin pages through Data assist. One of my table stores quotes - which have an incremental number.

So when I add a new quote it adds the info to my database.

When I search and view the details of any quote - I want to be able to e mail the contents of the database entry to my clients using Universal E Mail and a nicely formatted HTML e mail ( ie prod decription - qtys and prices ) but Without the Cost prices which are also entered when the quote is set up

I have tried to add to the details page - Webassist Sessions for each section of data - to load Before the page loads - thinking I could then pull out the sessions into the HTML e mail - but it just doesnt work

Am I doing something wrong or is there an easier way to e mail my quote

instead of using sessions, use hidden form elements.

add a form with a send quote button, add a hidden element for each column you want to include in the email, and bind each one to the corresponding column from the recordset.

In Universal Email, if you select the option to create a page for the email and use one of the templates, it will automatically include the form data in the email.

Thank you Jason

Thanks Jason - worked perfectly but I am getting a character issue on the e mailed form which is coming through as follows

We are getting £ on the form sent by UEM4

I think this is something to do with UTF8 but the product details page where I have the form embedded which sends the hidden fields is already UTF8

Where do I embed the code to put this right

Quotation Reference: 10777
Quotation Date: 16/05/2012
Customer Test
Customer E Mail john@interpak.ltd.uk
Product Quoted A box 200 x 200 x 200
Qty : 200 £2.00
Qty : 400 £1.80
Qty : 1000 £1.50
Die forme (if applicable ) £180
Print Stereo (if applicable ) £245

Thanks

In the Universal Email behavior, go to the email server settings tab and set the character set for the email to UTF8.
