Subject:      display graphic image in e-mail using ODS?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"

Greetings all,

I'm trying to develop a graph that will be e-mailed to its audience, all of whom are on our network and using Outlook. The graph is generated as a GIF on MVS. Rather than mailing the graph to all users, I'd like to keep it on a web server and display it within Outlook using either a simple <img> tag or within an I-frame (not sure if the latter is possible within Outlook, but it's worth a try).

My question is - can I somehow use ODS within a datastep to write the HTML that will render the graph in Outlook either using an IMG tag or within an I-frame? I'd like to have the graph display directly in the e-mail message rather than being an attachment that must be clicked on.

What I want to do is something like this, except have the GIF actually be displayed in Outlook (which isn't happening now, I'm just getting a blank page).

filename temp email to="" subject="Daily Graph" type="text/html";

ods html body=temp;

data _null_;

put "<img src='http://mywebserver/images/mygraph.gif'>";


ods html close;

Is there a way to do this?
