Hi Marty,

As I don't think anyone answered you so far, let me
ask the obvious question: what are you aiming to do?

Enter billing details into a database and with the
click of a button automatically send off an email?
Would the bill be an HTML file that was sent along as
an attachment? Or a PDF file? Or an XML-file?

RunRev can be hooked up to an SQL database (or you can
use the native SDB-library), can generate all sorts of
files, has a strong XML-libaray and has the ability to
send emails.
All in all, virtually anything can be accomplished
with RunRev, though some things require more work than

Maybe with more insight in your wishes, we can help
you tackle one issue at a time.
