Thanks for a great tutorial! I've been using the HTML output for a while
but had never quite been able to get the e-mail stuff to work until I copied
One gotcha that I ran into several months ago when I first started using MVS
to output HTML: Creating the file on the mainframe as EBCDIC and then having
the FTP program translate it to ASCII seems to cause random,
non-fatal-but-irritating little problems in the downloaded file. I've had
consistently perfect luck instead using the TRANTAB=ASCII option in my ODS
HTML statement and then downloading the file as binary.
Modifying your example, the e-mail attachments can be sent as binary as
Attach = ('your.html.file.name' Ext='xls' ct='application/octet-stream'
'your.html.file.name' Ext='doc' ct='application/octet-stream'
'your.html.file.name' Ext='html' ct='application/octet-stream')
"ct" is shorthand for "Content_Type".
