Hi Team,

Can we use Data of any DSS table while creating Email body? Actually I want data(prepared in my DSS workflow) to be displayed in Tabular form in Email Body.

I am fine if i need to write any custom Python Code for it.

Thanks in Advance

    Hi,

    If I understand correctly you could use a Send Message scenario step and define the dataset to be added in the body of the email. PLease see the screenshot below:

    Let us know if this works for you.

    Thanks Alex, this solves my problem but can we get more structure to the output? As i can see there is no border and alignment is also not proper. How can we make it more readable?

    You should be able to use Freemaker to format you dataset https://freemarker.apache.org/docs/dgui_quickstart_template.html

    You can try something like this :

    <table border=1>
    ${variable_name}
    </table>

    In most cases sending it as an attachment directly may be more suitable instead of including this in the body of the email.

    Hey Alex,

    Is there any simple way to put the borders between the columns of the table, not just around the table, as in the example <table border=1> ${variable_name} </table>

    I would really appreciate your answer.

    You can using CSS. Here is an example.

    <html><head><style media="screen">table {margin: 0 auto;border-collapse: collapse;border-style: hidden;}table td {padding: 0.1rem;border: 1px solid Gray;}table th {padding: 0.5rem;border: 1px solid Black;}</style></head>${Variable_Name}</html>

    I don't know of a way to reference just a column from a dataset natively like you are wanting to. Best bet is to create another dataset with just that column in it and then pass that to the mail body.
