Is there someone out thar that has managed to achieve this ... I have lots of really cool reports, that are printed and faxed, and OR sent as Snap files, but I would like to just send them as an HTML formatted message. It is possible, because Acclaim mange it very nicely with their Access based accounting package, See http://www.acclaim.co.nz Someone I am sure has been there done that, at the moment M$ seem to think that just selecting the HTML template for the message attachment, will provide a miraculous event ... but do not then continue on to describe how to code the template to accommodate the report body and layout. As per usual I will ship MARS bars to the best answer ... NeoPal excepted :-)

I don't lay claim to the mars bar just a little bored this evening so heres one angle to get a report into the HTML body of a mail message (of a fashion anyway). Certainly not the answer but it might give you an idea or two..see attachment
