Just wondering if there is a workaround. Data Migrator allows exporting reports to Excel file, however, in the email attachment (in process flow)it allows attaching .xht files (not xls) files. Why xls cannot be attached? Is there a workaround to attach csv files to an email message? Is there a way to format email message (instead using plan text) - for instance attach logo, add line as space between paragraphs?

Hello Anna, There was a restriction in the past releases of DataMigrator - to attach only FOCUS type of files to send with an e-mail. We're currently working on the new feature: to allow all of the file types to send with an e-mail. The feature comes into next production release. As for the Excel files, I can suggest a work-around for now. You can save the Excel files as comma delimited files (.csv), and rename the .csv files into the .txt files. I know that's not an elegant way, but it will give you a way to send those files. Thanks.
