Send Report output as Email attachment (PDF)

583 Views

Hi Experts,

i am trying to send the contents of an internal table from my report as email using PDF attachment. I have coded the logic and i get the attachment in the email. When i try to open the attachement, i cannot open it.

The message i get is "_Adobe reader could not open the attachment "attach.pdf" because it is either not a supported file type or the file has been damaged(for example, it was sent as an email attachment and wasn't correctly decoded )._

Not sure where i went wrong.
