I just upgraded from SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2012 and had a procedure that dynamically builds html and uses xp_smtp_sendmail to send the email. One of the parameters for this procedure is @dumpmsg. This parameter allows you to save the html file to the file system. In SQL Server 2012, sp_send_dbmail does not have a parameter to save the html file to the file system. In 2012, how can I build and html file and save it to the file system? Can this be done in TSQL or do I need to use SSIS?

You could create a job that will use a Cmd Exec step to save the file. It'll save you a trip to SSIS.

Although there's a great amount of unnecessary fear about it, you could use xp_CmdShell to export it using BCP or SQLCmd.

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
     Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is usually not.
Just because you can do something in PowerShell, doesnt mean you should. Wink
