    Hello,

    If you are working on Forms 9i or 10g you can do it by importing java mail api provided free by sun and using it in your forms application.

    A good place to start is the Forms 10g demos availaible on otn which include a working example of your requirement.

    With Forms 6/6i or earlier you would have to make use of external procedures (perhaps a c application using ora_ffi) or host to a command line utility like febooti Command line email - Utility to send mail which supports sending attachments.

    Hello,

    Syntax of host commmand is
    host (command, screen_mode);

    It will help u a lot if u also look up the Developer 2000 help. In forms 5 click on help Forms builder help topics or Ctrl+H and type host in resulting window.

    U will also have to look up the help of third party software u wish to use for sending email with attachments.

    Regards,

    Kashif Javed Rana
