Postby kiran_wiproblr » Tue Feb 21, 2012 12:05 am

Hi could some one help me out?

I would like to send reports in XL(Microsoft Excel) format, with out disturbing of alignment which is there in original data set.
Report consists of yesterday’s data.


My expected features in the email

1. Report present in AAA.BBB.CCC data set and it has to send in XL with file name as “Report for yesterdays date”
Ex: “Report for 16 February 2012”

2. My recipients has to receive reports with subject line as “Report for yesterdays date”
Ex:: “Report for 16 February 2012”

3. Email body is there in XXX.YYY.ZZZ data set

4. Email IDs to which the above report has to sent is in MMM.NNN.OOO data set

I have seen some programs which is using XMITIP in my project, but is not exactly match with my requirement

NOTE: XL(Microsoft Excel) has to set with out disturbing of original alignment of original data set.

the report will be sent in the format it was produced by Your application
to transform <anything> into EXCEL format will require additional processing steps by EXCEL aware applications.
I have seen some programs which is using XMITIP in my project, but is not exactly match with my requirement

I find hard to believe that XMITIP would not satisfy somebodys requirements, no mail program will transform a <file> into an EXECL datasheet

Software that creates Excel workbooks on mainframes costs many thousands of dollars, and it is unlikely that your shop has it. Moreover, you show -- and have shown in your other threads -- a lamentable lack of understanding as to how anything computerish, whether on mainframes or programmable calculators, works. I strongly recommend that you investigate CSV data sets...if you can read and comprehend technical English.

what is that You do not understand in my previous reply
the report will be sent in the format it was produced by Your application
to transform <anything> into EXCEL format will require additional processing steps by EXCEL aware applications.

the only inexpensive solution is to transform the MF data in CSV format
and have some macro on he excel side to transform it into a report

even if for <security> and <auditing> compliance most organization prefer to send reports in and uneditable format ( PDFs with the proper flags )

Hi Enrico,

Many thanks for suggestion.

Can you please provide the process of transforming MF data to SCV format and then transfer to MS excel
The process has to be automate, so that submission of job will have to send to email ,MS excel as an attachment.

Then spend a lot of money on a package which will give you an Excel file.

Or spend a lot of time writing an application yourself.

Or make it a CSV (all this requires is putting commas (or another delimiter) between your fields, and quotation marks (or another delimiter) around your fileds which can possibly contain the first delimeter.

Deliver the file to the user. The user opens the file (probably double-click will be enough) and they can see the data.

OK, yes, you might want to do more when it arrives to the user. You should, like checking it is the right file, from the right business/data date, that it is a complete file. Get a consultant who knows Excel, just for a couple of weeks. Provide a nice file with which you can do integrity checks. Bingo.
