Send data as a message to a hipchat room


This is a line that is the end result of a button click in MS Access to send a test message to a Hipchat room.. works a treat;

HTTPReq.send "{""color"":""red"", ""from"":""SLS"" ,""message"":""TEST"", ""message_format"":""html""}"

What I want to do is wrap up the results from a query (well I have a few I am planning this for) and send that to the room.  The data will have a technician name associated with it and they can grab their task from the room.  I.e. data cleanup, an error with scanning an asset.

I am not sure with the line above how I can basically loop through a recordset of data, have it formatted in a nice way.. i.e. rows and columns and then sent over to the room.

I have the data displayed on PHP pages also, but wanted to avoid just simply pasting links.. I want this to be the process of deriving the data and sending it to the room.  I am not sure if this is possible from within VBA but would LOVE to know if it can be done.


Thanks all.
