We are needing to include an external document (i.e. Excel, Word, etc) stored in the Web as part of our output from the Mainframe platform. We have been able to connect to the web and find the document from mainframe. From here, I notice that there are the HTML tags - how do I resolve in such a way that when I email the output of the SAS program along with the document, it is in a readable format.
Review the ODS HTML and FILENAME EMAIL engine parameters when using SAS on the mainframe (presumed IBM's z/OS MVS environment), either as an attachment or as an instream HTML-formatted EMAIL document.
The SAS support website http://support.sas.com/ has technical reference documents as well as SAS (z/OS MVS companion supplement guide) with details on the topic. Here is one related tech support document:
it works for me and my client....
Significant benefits, include :
multiple messages informing recipients, but only one copy of data moves to file-server ;
no recipients need a mainframe account ;
batch process delivers data overnight to server.
I guess there might be more that I don't immediately remember.
