Shell scripting unable to send the sql query data in table in body of email

I have written a shell script that calls below sql file. It is not sending the query data in table in the body of email.
Code:
spool table_update.html;
SELECT * FROM PROCESS_LOG_STATS where process = 'ActivateSubscription';
spool off;
exit;

To be able to give you an answer, we would need to know the OS and shell you are using, and see your script and the error messages if any, the little SQL code extract you gave is clueless to us

Thanks Vbe for quick reply

I am using korn shell on an AIX machine..
shell script as below:
Code:
. /ptma/ptma.profile;
echo $DB_PASS | sqlplus $DB_USER@$DB_SID @/ptma/ActivationCountCheck/ActivationCountCheck.sql;
mail -s "Activation Count of Last Day" someone@something.com < table_update.html
exit;

while the sql file has:
Code:
spool table_update.html;
SELECT appid, sum(resp) 
FROM PROCESS_LOG_STATS 
where process = 'ActivateSubscription' and ddate > sysdate-2 group by process, appid ORDER BY process, appid;
spool off;

The mail is triggrred but body of mail has data in text format but not in proper report/excel/html format.

Looks like you will have to send your report as an attachment if you want to keep the HTML format...

This is how I used to transfer fancy stuff and binaries: (Because I remember at the time I had issues when sending .doc or .xls files...)
Code:
cp myheader > /tmp/mailtmpfile
uuencode /path/datafile datafile >> /tmp/mailtmpfile
cat /tmp/mailtmpfile | sendmail -t 
rm /tmp/mailttmpfile
