Is it possible to insert a PDF report as an EMail Inline message via Report Caster? I have tried selecting the option in report caster to send the report as INline message but when the email is sent, report is sent as an attachment. Anybody know why this is happening? Thanks.

Hi Alma

HTML is the only output format supported for an in-line message for email delivery.


Thank you for using Focal Point!

Thank you for your quick response. I'm trying to format a table (grid) in the SUBHEAD section of the report, which requires borders and cell shading. I haven't been able to get it to work with HTML format. I'm able to get it to display the data in column format but won't allow borders or shading. Any suggestions?

Here's a sample code for the PDF format. Lines 16-23 is the table I need included in the report.

When I said :
quote:

It means to create a sample using the CAR file that will result in what you need (or similar to).

From what you posted there is a lot of error in the HEADING definition : too many or not enough of double quotes. Maybe related to the fact the you haven't use the code tag.

When posting sample code or output layout, please use the code tag.

What is ?
