Add Column Headings to HTML table

I'm trying to add column heading to the following HTML. The headings contained in the sbody1 are as follows Primary Appellant Full Name, Appeal Number and Adjudicator. This code is being run from an Access db that generates Outlook email with table.


sbody = "Hi " & strname & ",<br>The appeal(s) identified below are currently involved in the LA Initiative.  Although the appeals have not been settled, the appeals have been pended in MAS. " & _
"<br><br>HA processing (i.e., conducting hearings and/or issuing orders) must cease until further notice from HA HQ. <b><u> DO NOT SHIP THE CASE FILE(S) TO THE Ad</b></u>  You must keep possession of the case file(s) until further instruction from HA HQ." & sbody & "</table><br><br><br><br><br><table>" & sbody1 & " </table></b></i><br><br>If you have any questions, please let me know. Thank you!, </i></div></body></html>"

Do yourself a favour and change the approach. Use templates, which then are filled by using Replace(). This way you can create your HTML content like a static web page.

Next time... Don't have time to change now.. Thanks

Option Compare Database
Option Explicit

Public Function GetTemplate(ATemplateID As Long) As String

  GetTemplate = DLookup("TemplateText", "Templates", "TemplateID = " & ATemplateID)

End Function

Public Sub GenerateMail()

  Const SQL_SELECT As String = _
    "SELECT [Primary Appellant Full Name], [Appeal Number], [Adjudicator] " & _
    "FROM Data;"

  Dim rst2 As DAO.Recordset
  
  Dim Body As String
  Dim Rows As String
  
  Set rst2 = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset(SQL_SELECT, dbOpenForwardOnly)
  Do While Not rst2.EOF
    Rows = Rows & GetTemplate(2)
    Rows = Replace(Rows, "{Primary Appellant Full Name}", rst2![Primary Appellant Full Name])
    Rows = Replace(Rows, "{Appeal Number}", rst2![Appeal Number])
    Rows = Replace(Rows, "{Adjudicator}", rst2![Adjudicator])
    rst2.MoveNext
  Loop

  Set rst2 = Nothing
  Body = GetTemplate(1)
  Body = Replace(Body, "{Rows}", Rows)
  Debug.Print Body

End Sub

Thanks .... but I looking for solution to my code
ste5anSenior DeveloperCommented:
This is the solution.

Especally as your HTML is pretty poor and hard to read, when embedded as string literals in VBA code. Cause now you can simply modify your template and add your headers.
shieldscoAuthor Commented:
I don't follow you... can you add example HTML that will work with my code
ste5anSenior DeveloperCommented:
Just change the template.

<html>
    <body>
        <p>Hi {strname}
        <p>The appeal(s) identified below are currently involved in the LA Initiative.  Although the appeals have not been settled, the appeals have been pended in MAS.
        <p>HA processing (i.e., conducting hearings and/or issuing orders) must cease until further notice from HA HQ. <b><u> DO NOT SHIP THE CASE FILE(S) TO THE Ad</b></u>  You must keep possession of the case file(s) until further instruction from HA HQ.
        {sbody}
        <table><tr><th>Head 1</th><th>Head 2</th><th>Head 3</th></tr>{Rows}</table>
        <p>If you have any questions, please let me know. Thank you!
