insert image into HTML signature

I currently have a vbs script that queries the users AD account, then creates a html file for their outlook signature based on the AD data.

its all works peachy, now management want to ad a logo to the signature!! BEcause the script automatically creates the signature i have been trying for the life of me to add a new line to the script that inserts an image.

attached is the vbs that im using. If i open the html file and add in the the html part it works fine, however when i try and use this code in a vbs file it keeps giving me the following error

"Error: Expected end of statement"

i have compated it to my other objfile.write code and cant see where i am going wrong.



objfile.write "<br><img src="gptw.jpg" /></br>"

The HTML tag <BR> is a singleton tag, for one thing.

You can't do this:

<BR> text </BR>

BR only works this way:

<BR />

It creates a carriage return.

Maybe this misuse is creating your problem, or maybe it's the nested double-quotes.

try this instead:

objfile.write "<br /><img src=" & chr(34) & "gptw.jpg" & chr(34) & " /><br />"


objfile.write "<br /><img src=" & chr(34) & "gptw.jpg" & chr(34) & " /><br />"

bhwithun suggestion should solve your problem. In any case, here's an alternative using 2 double quotes.

objfile.write "<br /><img src=""gptw.jpg"" /><br />"

hey thanks for getting back to me, i realised why. I was placing the code in the wrong spot

the vbs cript creates and an email signature in html, rtf and plain text.

i realised that i put the code in the section where it creates the plain text signature, and moved to the section where it creates the html siganutre. my bad

but both of your suggestions worked and thanks again for your assistance
