Convert Text to HTML Table and e-mail

principiamanagement used Ask the Experts™
I have text file with following columns. I want the to converted to HTML table and the HTML file to be e-mailed.

NASvolumeName | DFSName                 |   Total Size |    Free Size
\\NAS01\Vol1        | \\Dom1\fileshr1       |  1,800        |   600

"|" should be used as a separator.

Based on the topics selected, I'm assuming you're generating the output from VBS scripts.
If yes, then put set the output to HTML or create the email directly in an HTML format and send it from the VBS script.

Alternatively, if you're getting the data in a .txt or .csv format then the easiest option is to create a macro in Excel.

I'm being a lazy admin here, but let me know if you need more help with the specific option you require...


With this script i tried to put for one volume but I am not sure how can do it for mutiple voulmes.....Here is teh script I am using....
 Const wbemFlagReturnImmediately = &h10
Const wbemFlagForwardOnly = &h20

Set objFS = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objNewFile = objFS.CreateTextFile("NASVolumeUsage.htm")

On Error Resume Next

a =    "<style>"
a = a& "BODY{background-color:Lavender ;}"
a = a& "TABLE{font-size: 10pt; font-family: arial;}"
a = a& "TH{background-color: buttonface; font-decoration: bold;}"

   Dim objNetwork , objDrive , objFSO 
   Const Decimals = 2

   Set objNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network") 
   Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") 
   objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "y:", netpath 
   Set objDrive = objFSO.Drives("y:\") 
   Total = FormatNumber(objDrive.TotalSize /1073741824, Decimals)
   Free = FormatNumber(objDrive.FreeSpace /1073741824, Decimals)
   objNewFile.WriteLine "<tr><td> " & netpath & " </td><td>&nbsp;" & dompath & "</td><td>&nbsp;" & Total & "</td><td>&nbsp;" & Free & "</td></tr>"
