Adding Line Break into Launch("mailto:") Body

Hello Everyone!
I have managed to get the app to launch and start writing the email, the email address populates and the subject & body line also is created!
But now im left with a connundrum, i am attempting to add a line break within the body of the email.

 

This is my coding currently:
Launch("mailto:" & "Approvals@group.com"
& "&subject=Please provide authorization for:"
& "&body=
Customer:
Address:
PO #:
Group #:
Total: "
)

This results in the following in the body of the email:

Customer:         Address:          PO #:             Group #:          Total:

My goal is to have it formatted like so:
Customer:        

Address:         

PO #:            

Group #:         

Total:



tried adding char(13) but results are the same.

eg.
Launch("mailto:" & "Approvals@group.ca"
& "&subject=Please provide authorization for:"
& "&body=
Customer: " & Char(13) &
"Address: " & Char(13) &
"PO #: " & Char(13) &
"Group #: " & Char(13) &
"Total: "
)

any ideas out there how someone can add a serperate line break?

Thank you!

Hi @slabunski

I can get this to work by using the escape sequence %0D%0A (see RFC 1738 for more details).

Can you try this to see if it works better for you?

 

 

Launch("mailto:" & "Approvals@group.ca"
& "&subject=
Please provide authorization for:"
& "&body=
Customer: " & "%0D%0A" &
"Address: " & "%0D%0A" &
"PO #: " & "%0D%0A" &
"Group #: " & "%0D%0A" &
"Total: "
)

Thanks for your fast reply!
Doesnt seem to work though:


Launch("mailto:" & "Approvals@group.ca"
& "&subject=
Please provide authorization for:"
& "&body=
Customer: " & "<br>" &
"Address: " & "<br>" &
"PO #: " & "<br>" &
"Group #: " & "<br>" &
"Total: "
)

Results in:

Customer:         <br>Address:         <br>PO #:            <br>Group #:         <br>Total:
