Where are these reports to be viewed - on a mainframe terminal, a server terminal, a reort printed from the mainframe, a report printed from a windows/unix server/workstation?

FTP stands for File Transfer Program - it transfers files so it is not going to do any playing with your data except to translate it from EBCDIC to ASCII (or the other way around) if not transfering in Binary mode.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Nic

Did you use SMTP to send the email? If so, you need to be aware that SMTP does not support formatting -- it is plain text only. SAS can provide formatting through ODS but you should be aware that email formatting is under the control of the email client, NOT the email sender so you may want something in your formatted email that the client cannot provide. You may have to experiment to get emails that you like.

Thanks Robert and NICC.. I'm using SAS to send emails. I'll try to test the ODS and post my results
