Hi Mike,

The problem I had was that I wanted the report email subject to include the
Paypal transaction ID from the Paypalexpress module, I tried it in the order
profile but couldn't get the transaction ID into the subject, I presumed
that this was because the ID had not yet been created when the profile ran?
