Desktop Office Integration and Email


Dear Colleagues:

I have developed a Desktop Office Integration application that retrieves WORD documents from a BDS Content Server, customizes the document with BP data, emails the document to the BP as an attachment, and associates the document with the BP (Document tab). It works well.

I am now trying to figure out how to process the document and use the text as the body of an email message instead of an attachment - I cannot assume that all email recipients use MS Word.

I have tried several FMs that convert raw data to either strings or RTF format but, inspite of my efforts, I get conversion errors.

If anyone has tried something similar I would appreciate any advice.
