Trick: ‘Pasting’ SQL Developer Exports to an Outlook Message as an HTML Table

Tell Others About This Story:

You have some data.

You want to email it to someone.

You don’t want them to have to open an attachment.

You want it to be in an HTML-Tabl’ish delivery device.

In SQL Developer, write your query.

Export to HTML > File.

Open Outlook.

Start your message.

Attach File

Point to your HTML File

DON’T CLICK ON THE INSERT BUTTON

On the INSERT button, there’s a drop-down widget. Click that instead. And then choose, ‘Insert as Text.’

Ta-da?

Our generated HTML has an some javascript which adds a search mechanism to your webpage. That will render as an ugly red box in your email message…just backspace over it.

I realize this is a few extra clicks than you might want, but it’s probably still faster than what you’ve been doing.
