Would like to send report as attachment in email

Has any sent a report as an attachment in an email or exported a report as a file to a directory. Our requirement is to run a scheduled job, but not all users will log in to HP PPM to see reports. Does anyone have anu suggestions.

Hi Sharon,

You can't send attachments with the PPM mail function.
All PPM reports are stored in the /reports dir as html files.

You need a external command line mailer on your PPM box to send the report file as attachment.

Modify the report type and add a command to execute the mailer.

Hi Sharon,

There are some Oracle Utility packages which can send attachments in mails.
May be you can add commands in your report types to execute these custom procedures which uses Oracle Utility packages to send attachements in mails.
