Did not work for me on sql2005. Many errors about columns that do not exist...

True. This is a SQL Server 2000 only script. Sorry it wasn't clear.

Very useful code! I get several regular requests for job schedules and this saves me having to create manual static printouts of the job schedules.

Below is a repost of the code, with a few fixes:

USE msdb
GO

/*
Microsoft doesn't provide a way to SELECT the job schedule descriptions. They do
provide a stored procedure [msdb.dbo.sp_get_schedule_description] which will return
a job schedule description for one job.

The below select statement was derived from information in that procedure, and lists
all jobs on a server with their name, description and schedule description.
*/

SELECT
j.name
, j.description
, CASE
WHEN j.enabled = 0 THEN 'Disabled'
WHEN s.job_id IS NULL THEN 'Unscheduled'
WHEN s.freq_type = 0x1 -- OneTime

Works great in 2000. Very handy. Has anyone come up with a version that works in 2005?

Thanks
Boris

My Boss just came up with a sp for 2005 which has a slightly different output but provides essentially the same results. She's MUCH better at coding then I am.

I'll forward her a link to this forum and ask her to post the procedure. It works great by BTW.

I just finished with a 2005 version, and have submitted it to SQL Server Central.

thank you for the helpful script; the original version ran fine when I tried on SQL2000, but above fixed script results in error, anyone else have this issue? Thanks...

Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Line 24
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'WHEN'.
