Hi,

I havent heard anything related to making a phone call from sql server.

Do anyone have idea how to do it?is it possible from sql server?

We are using the .NET and SQL Server. From .NET i guess we can do it.

But normally how does it work?

Thanks,

Deepak

I am not aware of any built in facility to make a phone call from SQL Server. However if I wanted to do it I'd probably write a .net assembly implemented as a windows service that reads on a service broker message queue. Quests would be sent in the form of a message to the message queue and the service would make the call *** requested in its own context.

The probability of survival is inversely proportional to the angle of arrival.

SQL Server isn't an automation engine (or rather not a *general purpose* automation engine), and isn't going to have the hooks you would want to do telephony. You will end up having to do .NET and adding telephony libraries to that (or some such similarsolution), possibly pulling the phone #'s out of SQL if that's where they are stored.

Your lack of planning does not constitute an emergency on my part...unless you're my manager...or a director and above...or a really loud-spoken end-user..All right - what was my emergency again?

It is for sure possible to place a call using SQL server. You can even send text messages using a service like Twilio.com combined with this user friendly DLL here. Basically the idea is that you use this package and you end up with some UDF on your sql server so you can make calls and send text messages from your sql server in one line of SQL code.
