   This folder will conttiune to receive emails with similar table structure as part of the email "Body"

2) Parse the fields in the embedded table in the "Body" of the email and create reports. (Unsuccessful).

Hello @SudhaC 

 

access the html-body of your mail with this reference [Body][HtmlBody]

This give you the html-code of your mail. Use Html.Table to read the html-code.

This code for example gives you all table-cells

 

 Html.Table(HtmlBody,{{"AllCells", "td"}})

 

this all rows

 

 Html.Table(HtmlBody,{{"AllRows", "tr"}})
