Hi
I am using msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail and the property @attach_query_result_as_file=1;

It works well..no issues with functionality..but the way the results are formatted in the attached file is not fine.
Tongue
Is there a way to over come this problem. It is fine if I can have the results in the body of the email and not as attachment.

Thanks
GSquared

Yeah, I found the results created that way less than useless.

What I do instead is query the results as XML, then put that in the body of the HTML e-mail, after conversion to an HTML table. There's probably a better way to do it, but this way I can control the layout, et al.
