Hi all.

I have a website built using php and hosted by godaddy.com.

I want to be able to send an email every night showing the data entry done for the day.

Is there a way to do this?

Thank you in advance.

Set up a cron job to execute a php page that sends you the email.

The answer is "yes" and there will need to be a log of the data entry.  That implies a data base abstraction layer that logs the data entry queries.  It's not hard to do this, but you might want to consider having professional help since it will probably require a number of changes to the existing code set.

Is a cron job a software that needs to be installed on my godaddy web server?

It will already be installed

This won't do anything other than execute a php page you have created - you still need to create this page that gets the data and sends the email.
