    Default Linking to DB?

    I am sending a CDONTS mail message to a user to let them know when a message is entered in the Access DB. Is there a way I can put a link in the body to the specific record they are looking at in the DB? I need to have the DB open to that records report from the link. Follow? I know I could just have the user link to the record in ASP, but I have a specific report format I need them to print. Any suggestions, or am I completely gone?<BR><BR>Thx,<BR>amancalledadam

    Default create a link which uses a query string...

    create a link which uses a query string which holds the value of a field which can identify that record ..then when the user clicks this link it should take him to an asp page which creat and open a connection to the database, then retrieve the record from the database using the value of the query string that was passed by the link....<BR><BR>compendre???
