Email Notification - Table formatting

I am trying to create a email notification and I am creating a table in my email. For some reason, table is messing up my email. It's creating extra spaces between the table and following paragraph. Plus, row height is too much and unnecessarily increasing the length of email. I tried to change the row height using the functionality already provided in email notification but it's not helping. Any suggestions?

@RAHULGANDHI .....instead of building table in send notification action, use build string and build your table there and use that variable in notification email.

@RAHULGANDHI ......you already have your HTML code in send notification. Just cut and paste that code in build string.....clean the code if needed and save it in a variable. Use that workflow variable in the body of your email notification, that's all.

Re: Email Notification - Table formatting

I created a build string but it does not help in my case.

 

I created a workflow, created a table without borders. The output is fine in this case. I have attached this output 'table_without_border_in_Outlook_email.JPG'.

 

Table looks fine in Send Notification action. But when borders are present and when we sent out email notification, then it's height enlarges. Refer to screenshot 'table_with_borders_in_Outlook_email.JPG'. 

 

I have attached workflow. Please modify the HTML code/ workflow and share it with me. I have spent lot of time but no luck.

 

I have pasted the screenshot of the output that I desire named as 'desired_output.JPG'.

This is bug in Nintex. It should not be this difficult. Table creation isn't userfriendly.

 

Thanks.

@RAHULGANDHI .....What if you specify the column width in your HTML?

Re: Email Notification - Table formatting

Column width is fine. Row height is the one which is giving me issue. I went online and read about changing row height but it's doesn't help. I tried the in built table layout feature to change row height but no luck. Can you create a simple workflow with a table that sends out email with the table which matches with the one I shared in desired output JPG and share it here?
