    Hi Mohit,

    Regarding the latest Job status query you have posted, i have tried that but it doesn't gave me the expected result.

    Here is what i have done , i have put the T-SQL in the job which will execute infinite times, so the Job Status is In Progress, but when i fired the query of the Job Status it still gives me status as successful.

    Is i am going wrong somewhere , here is the query which i have used so that the Job should remain in the In Progress state. When i stop the job it does show me the Canceled status but In Progress it was not showing.

    Code Snippet:

    declare @count int

    set @count=0

    while(@count<100)

    print 'hi'

    set @count=@count+0

    Looking forward for positive response.

    I added last run time and duration, and FQDN for msdb table to allow this to be used in a stored procedure or elsewhere than Query Analyser 😀 :

    select distinct j.Name as "Job Name", j.description as "Job Description", h.run_date as LastStatusDate, h.run_time as LastStatusTime, h.run_duration as LastStatusDuration,

    case h.run_status

    when 0 then 'Failed'

    when 1 then 'Successful'

    when 3 then 'Cancelled'

    when 4 then 'In Progress'

    end as JobStatus

    from msdb..sysJobHistory h, msdb..sysJobs j

    where j.job_id = h.job_id

    and h.step_id = 1

    and h.run_date =

    (select max(hi.run_date) from msdb..sysJobHistory hi where h.job_id = hi.job_id)

    and h.run_time =

    (select max(hj.run_time) from msdb..sysJobHistory hj where h.job_id = hj.job_id)

    order by 1

    And this, to include category information....

    select distinct cat.name as "Category", j.Name as "Job Name", j.description as "Job Description",

    h.run_date as LastStatusDate, h.run_time as LastStatusTime, h.run_duration as LastStatusDuration,

    case h.run_status

    when 0 then 'Failed'

    when 1 then 'Successful'

    when 3 then 'Cancelled'

    when 4 then 'In Progress'

    end as JobStatus

    from msdb..sysJobHistory h, msdb..sysJobs j, msdb..syscategories cat

    where j.job_id = h.job_id and

    j.category_id = cat.category_id

    and h.step_id = 1

    and h.run_date =

    (select max(hi.run_date) from msdb..sysJobHistory hi where h.job_id = hi.job_id)

    and h.run_time =

    (select max(hj.run_time) from msdb..sysJobHistory hj where h.job_id = hj.job_id)

    order by 1,3

    You will never get "In Progress" status.

    Hi Mohit

    Nice posting!

    One of my DBA brought your post in my attention when he was working on finding list of jobs current status is not successful.

    I happened to notice little change requirement in your query:

    You should replace last part using max(instance_id) that will help user to find latest status even when job ran multiple times in a day. To be precise:

    syntax part:

    instance_id = (select max(hi.instance_id) from msdb.dbo.sysjobhistory hi where h.job_id = hi.job_id)

    Just thought and suggestion!

    This query doesn't take into account the time the job ran - if there is more than one run in a day we have not specified how we want this to be dealt with.

    SQL Rank gives us a good idea of what we're looking at - also selecting step id = 0 gives the job outcome.

    Select

    [Job Name] = j.name

    , [Job Description] = j.description

    , [LastRunDate] = h.run_date

    , [LastRunTime] = h.run_time

    , [JobStatus] = Case h.run_status

    When 0 Then 'Failed'

    When 1 Then 'Successful'

    When 3 Then 'Cancelled'

    When 4 Then 'In Progress'

    End

    ,[OrderOfRun] = Rank() Over(Partition By j.job_id Order By h.run_date Desc,h.run_time Desc)

    From

    msdb.dbo.sysjobhistory h

    Left join msdb.dbo.sysjobs j On j.job_id = h.job_id

    Where h.step_id=0 --only look @ Job Outcome step

    Order By [Job Name] desc,Rank() Over(Partition By j.job_id Order By h.run_date Desc,h.run_time Desc) Asc
