e-mail link in form

P: n/a
I have checked the web and this forum as well, and I must not be
searching for the correct terms..I can't believe this question hasn't
come up before (so I must be missing it)

How would I add a e-mail link into a form (like if the user wanted to
click on it to invoke their outlook client to send me an email onissue
concenring the db)

I made a command button, and then I used on click, open outlook (since
everyone in the company uses a standard PC setup I presume that this
will invoke Outlook for anyone..it does for me). How do I pass my
email addy into it and open an email message?

Thanks
Jerry

Thanks for the suggestion Rick.

After few abortive attempts with syntax and those darn "", I got an
on click event to function in opening an email to me when the user
clicks a cmb button.

Cool.
