Is it possible to retrieve the contents of a data area in a i5 library and insert the data into the body of an E-mail?

Thank you,

Yes, it is possible to retrieve the contents of a data area, and do with them whatever you choose. In order to accomplish this, you must create a program (either CL, RPG or other language of your choice) that will retrieve the data area and place the contents in a variable. This variable can be referenced in a project using the Execute i5/OS Command or Program task.

You can see an example of this at ... f=21&t=247
