Hello all,

does anyone knows if it is possible, that instead to print a report
if it is possible to send it via e-mai??

I have alpha 5 ver. 4.5

It will be very nice if someone could give me a help.

Cesar.....

First install the Windows "text only" printer driver & set
all of the field heights in the report to .067 inches & make
sure that the field lengths are long enough to enclude all
characters in the field.

Next depending on the structure of the report you can
add HTML "tags" as text objects to the report similar
to the graphic of the report below.

Then when you print the report use the "Generic Text Only"
printer driver & name the file with an *.HTML extension,
attach it to an email & send.





I have used this method in an application with good success.
The report was a simple one, so depending on the structure
of your report you may want to change the "TAGS" to meet
your needs.....
