In the sixth Wizard window, select the field that contains the email address of the recipient. In this case, this is the “E-mail” field.
Click the “Next” button.

In the next window of the Wizard, type a subject for the email and type in your accompanying text. A “Subject” must always be typed in an email, which we call ‘Courtesy’ and a message in the “Introduction” is always handy.
Click the “Next” button.

In the eighth Wizard window, click the “Next” button.

In the ninth Wizard window, select who should receive this email. By default, all these are selected but, if you only want a few of your friends to get the email, please uncheck the box next to “Select all” and select only those whom you want to mail.
Click the “Send” button.

When your client, friend or acquaintance now checks his email, he sees this email appear as a HTML message in his inbox.
He clicks the “Reply” button.


It then opens a new message containing the HTML form, in which he can make changes in the various fields. After making the changes he clicks “Send”.

Back in “Access” you click the “Manage Replies” button.

This gives you a list of all the replies received.

When you reload the table and open, you will see that the record is modified.
