Re: How to e-mail usage reports?

I would create a Macro to do all that you want to do.

First, export a tab delimited text file with the email address and stats
from a query on the Calls table. Use Pegasus mail client to do the mail
merge (create a template text file with placeholders to plug the data from
the text file into). Then, have the macro run a delete query on the Calls
table, or arachive the call records in the Calls Export (History) table.
The macro cam even launch Pegasus for you.

I do a very similar operation for our email billing and it works very well.


btw, if you have the latest copy of the radius.mdb (or whatever it is
named) you should have the necessary queries to do the archiving and
deletion of the Calls records :)
