Create/Read simple table in Body email in outlook


I’m currently trying to implement mail automation for my project.

I can get the email and send one, but i’m suppose to create a Table with some numbers.
Four columns with header and 1-4 rows.

I’ll send it to empty to a person, and he will respond by filling up the table, after that i would like to get those numbers into UiPath.

Is anyone already figured something like that ?
Or should I use a workaround ?

Thank you for your help/time.

Hello Peter,

There is an option on the mail activities for IsBodyHTML - the below link suggests that you can pass HTML to the body of the email rather than plain text so you should be able to pass your table tags through and create the table that way. I have never tried this though.

Hello Richard and thanks,

I have tested that in deed you can fill the body with HTML and activate IsBodyHTML to create a table, care though, the HTML and CSS does not behave like in classic web design, the CSS need to be in your HTML tag in order to function almost properly.
Now the challenge would be to receive that kind of mail and extract infos from it…

Thanks again.
