Generate Job Schedule Descriptions

By Richard Sutherland,

Microsoft doesn't provide a way toSELECT 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.

This script's select statement was derived from information in that procedure, and lists
all jobs on a server with their name, description and schedule description.
