Default How to create HTML page from a dynamic ASP page

Hi folks,

This is my problem, and i am stuck here.
I want to send a newsletter to all the members. If i have the newsletter in HTML file, i can do it easily, just Read the html file with FileSystem Object and then send it in email body.
But what if i have an ASP page that generates some results at run time, takes some data from database and display it. And i want to send those results in Newsletter.
Can there be a possibility where i could 1st generate an HTML page on the basis of results of ASP page and save it on my server and then send that page in newsletter?
Any help please.

One possibility is to use the FileSystemObject to create the HTML file. In the ASP, open the file through FSO, and write the HTML to the HTML file, with the results of your data from the database.

Another option:
The XMLHTML object can return the entire html of a page in a string form, you can then save that to your file system as html
See- http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/webtech/110100-1.shtml

They say, best men are moulded out of faults,
And, for the most, become much more the better
For being a little bad.
