Bursting attachment to Email along with html content in body

Normally when we burst the BI Reports we either do the html bursting so that the content will appear in the email body or burst with an attachment so that the end user can open the pdf and view it.

However if there is a requirement to combine both of them, then we can use the below bursting SQL:

select ‘1’                            KEY,
‘TEST’                               TEMPLATE,
‘RTF’                                 TEMPLATE_FORMAT,
‘en-US’                              LOCALE,
‘PDF’                                 OUTPUT_FORMAT,
‘EMAIL’                            DEL_CHANNEL,
‘Test Email’                       OUTPUT_NAME,
‘[email protected]’      PARAMETER1,
‘[email protected]’       PARAMETER3,
‘Test Subject’                     PARAMETER4,

  • Hello,
    I am using OUTPUT_FORMATE as HTML. The body of the mail content is in the RTF template. In the same RTF template, I am having two Docx type attachments. These two Dock attachments should come as the Same type in the mail. But I am getting as HTML type in the mail. Is there any solutions to get this scenario.
    Thank You

  • Hi Lokesh,
    I don’t think the attachments would get displayed in HTML.. You need to upload them somewhere and provide a link to download on the rtf template.. then those links would be visible on the html output.
