SQL Server: Sending Email in HTML Table Format Using TSQL

As part of our DBA life , we have to configure many alert or statistical  mails which gives an idea about the state of the database server. Let us discuss how we can send an email in HTML table format using TSQL. I am just going to give a sample script and it is self explanatory.

USE MSDB
GO
DECLARE @Reportdate DATE
SET @Reportdate =CONVERT(VARCHAR(10),GETDATE(),121)

/**************************************************************

DECLARE @FullBackupHeader VARCHAR(MAX)

SET @FullBackupHeader='<font color=black bold=true size= 5>'

SET @FullBackupHeader=@FullBackupHeader+'</font>'

You can download the formatted script from here. I have implemented this method to send various statistical/alert mail. Hope this will help you.

  1. As we know that SQL language is specified as an ANSI and ISO standard and performance, scalability, and optimization are important for database-driven applications, especially on the Web. In application development, we are required to build a SQL program to perform certain task(s) on periodic basis or daily basis. For example, send email alert of order details from SQL Server to the business users. Let us discuss how we can send an email in HTML table format using TSQL.
