Hi all,

This may be a strange question.

Is it possible to create an excel spreadsheet then email that spreadsheet to specific users based on results of a script.

For example, if I have the following example, and this is just an example:

Sub Click(Source As Button)
      
   ' === Get the location of the course DBs
      Dim session As New NotesSession
      Dim dbCur As NotesDatabase
      Set dbCur = session.CurrentDatabase
      Dim sPath As String
      spath = Left( dbCur.FilePath, Len(dbCur.FilePath) - Len(dbCur.FileName) )
      
     ' === Access the Parts database
      Dim dbParts As New NotesDatabase( "", spath & "5LS2part.nsf" )
      
      ' === Set the database search criteria
      Dim sSearchCriteria As String
      sSearchCriteria = | Sex = "Ladies" & @Left(PartID;2) = "GS" |
      
      ' === Gather the collection of ladies parts
      Dim collLadiesParts As NotesDocumentCollection
      Set collLadiesParts = dbParts.Search(sSearchCriteria, Nothing , 0 )
      
      ' === Declare the loop variables
      Dim sGolfSets As String
      Dim docPart As notesdocument
      
      ' === Walk the collection and build the text output of golf sets
      Set docPart = collLadiesParts.GetFirstDocument
      Do Until docPart Is Nothing
            sGolfSets = sGolfSets & Format(docPart.PartPrice(0),"currency")      &  " - "  & docPart.PartName(0) &  Chr(13)
            Set docPart = collLadiesParts.GetNextDocument(docPart)
      Loop
      
      ' === Report the ladies golf sets
Messagebox sGolfSets, MB_ICONINFORMATION , "Big Oak Ladies Golf Sets"
      
 
HERE MY QUESTION

Instead of the messagebox, can I create a spreadsheet from based on the output variable(sGolfSets) and can I then append this spreadsheet as a link and send it in an email to a specific user?

Any help will be much appreciated.

It would be easier to creaate a CSV file that will open in EXCEL.
You could create the excel spreadsheet, but you may have difficulty saving it automatically, before sending it.

I will find you some samples
