RB 14.04 - HTML Output not compatible with Outlook

edited September 2012 in Devices
Hi there !

I can print my reports to HTML device and view them
in my browser no problem. Looks exactly what's in
RB Preview. Problem is when I try to load the same
html as the body of my outlook email, it's a a mess !

I understand Outlook uses MS Word for rendering emails.
So is is there anyway to make the HTML output Word
compatible ?

Thanks !

    Hi Peter,

    In order to position report objects in their exact locations, the RB
    HTML/XHTML device uses the
    tag to export elements to an HTML file.
    This is unfortunately not fully supported by the latest versions of
    Outlook (2007+).

    It is on our todo list to research an option to export only with tables
    however this would be a large undertaking to the current device.

    Best Regards,
