Entering email address puts a semicolon instead of a comma

    Hi all,

    Hoping you can help. I have a subform that has a command button that starts
    an email message. It is supposed to take the name on the main form and put
    it into the To field of an email message. It does this except that it puts a
    semi-colon instead of the comma I need. Our email system uses this
    convention to email people: "LastName, FirstName".

    Here's what I've entered so far in the event procedure:


    Private Sub cmdSendEmail_Click()
    Dim strEmailAddress As String
    Dim strSubject As String

    strEmailAddress = Forms!frmContactDataEntry![LName] & ", " &
    Forms!frmContactDataEntry![FName]
    strSubject = Me![IssueName] & " - " & Me![IssueTransDate]

    DoCmd.SendObject acSendNoObject, , , strEmailAddress, , , strSubject


    The subject is in the subform but the name is messing with me. Help!

    Thanks!
    Chris

    Have you tried

    strEmailAddress = """" & Forms!frmContactDataEntry![LName] _
    & ", " & Forms!frmContactDataEntry![FName] & """"

    This will quote delimit the e-mail alias.
