How to create an EMAIL containing Summary Tables

Hey All!

I've managed to create a PROC SQL and SORT steps to produce quite a few summary tables and outputs but wanted to send these out as summary table to several email addresses. This will need to be done via Outlook and also have some content in the body of the email. Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks!

Re: How to create an EMAIL containing Summary Tables

Hi:

  There have been a LOT of previous forums postings about creating report output with ODS and then using the FILENAME email engine to sent email with the ODS report as an attachment. There are also quite a few Tech Support notes about the various system options that you have to set (at startup time) in order for the e-mail routines to work. In addition, you may need to work with your e-mail folks to find out the server names, mail method etc.

  I think if you search you will find the information you're looking for.

  As a way to get started, look at "greatest hit" #2 on pages 7 and 8 in this paper:
