@Ygor: Thanks for the link.

The requirement for is little different. Here it is
  1. I am using HP-UX
  2. I have only sendexchange, mailx and mail utilities to send mails
  3. I want to show the data not as an attachment but to be in the content of the mail.
  4. Mail Contents should be,
    1. CONTENTS - Description of report
    2. TABLE
      1. Header which will have column names
      2. Rows which holds the data
Any suggestions???

Hi: create a file.html and execute this code
BODY=`cat file.html`
cat << _MAIL_ | /usr/lib/sendmail -F "${FROM}" -f "${FROM}" "${DEST}"
Content-Type: text/html;

@franzpizzo: thanks. But the problem is there is no sendmail in my system.

I am not allowed to install any new utilities as well
