2 Oct: Q&A;: How do I attach an ASP page to an email?Mike:
I have a form email an attachment which is a page pulled from our server. This is fine but when I want to email the dynamic content it just won't go - I have spent days on trying to find a work around.
attachfile "e:/endowments/to_excel.asp", "newFile.xls"
This works fine but I really want to use this:
attachfile "e:/endowments/to_excel.asp?ID=37", "newfile.xls"
Do you think there is a work around?
attachfile just picks up the file from the hard disc and sends it - it doesn't "run" the file. To a file system a ?ID=37 just looks like you're trying to open a file using a ? wildcard (which won't work either)
You need to use a "screen scraper" to request the page from your server and save it to disk, then attach that.
