Modifying HTML Email Templates Width using The Data Loader

Knowledge Article Number 000204609
Description How to change the width of the HTML Email Templates using The Data Loader
Resolution  Steps to be followed:

Step 1 : Login to Data Loader

Step 2 : Once logged into the Data Loader, do an “Export All” command

Step 3 : Then make sure you click the button to “Show All Salesforce Objects” so you can find and select the Email Template object, choose your export destination, then click “Next.”

Step 4 :
Click the button “Select All Fields,” then click the “Finish” button

Step 5 : Open your export file in Excel. There is a field (column) called TEMPLATE TYPE. That column will show you which of your email templates are HTML.

Step 6 : The field that we want to modify is the column called HTML VALUE.

Step 7 :
In that field you’ll see values that define the email as in the example below. You can modify the “width” attribute in the HTML to make your template wider:

Example :

<table height="400″ width="550" cellpadding="5″ border="0″ cellspacing="5″ >
<tr height="400″ valign="top" >
<td style=" color:#000000; font-size:12pt; background-color:#FFFFFF; font-family:arial; bLabel:main; bEditID:r3st1;" tEditID="c1r1″ locked="0″ aEditID="c1r1″ >

Step 8 :
Once you modify that HTML tag, you can use the Data Loader to update the template with the new width value using the same .CSV file with the updated value.
