    Unanswered: errorlog monitoring & job outputs

    Considering email is setup, how would you send emails by scanning errorlog for any issues. Also, how to send program outputs using email.

    Need more info from ya, can use xp_sendmail to do it...I have things setup to do what I THINK you are trying to do...

    Although, this is probably more convoluted than you need...I wanted to try to make my messages a little more readable than just inserting the error message row columns from the EventLog table...

    Anyway...check out the sendmail code near the bottom...that's the gist of what you'll need.

    Keep in mind though, that there's a whole 'nother arm-wrestling match about permissions and user id stuff that must be in place to send mail from SQL Server 2000 through outlook - it was a tad more complex than just point-n-shoot.

     |  Name:	Send_EventLog_Mail_By_Level
     |  Description:	Performs a select against the EventLog table based on input parameters for target date and
     |		target error level and inserts the selected rows into an email which is then sent to a static
     |		mail address list.  No email is sent if selection results in no rows selected for that date/error level.

     |  Modified:	09/20/2004 by Yo_Mama - Added Server Name to message subject/message body.
     |  Inputs:	TDate (smalldatetime) - The date for which any errors are to be selected/reported via email.
     |		TLevel (int) - The relative error level for which rows are to be selected/reported via email.

    Non est ei similis.

    I just read "100 Things To Do Before You Die". I was surprised that "Yell for help!!" wasn't one of them
