This might be an easy question to answer, I need SQL Server to automatically email excel files or csv files reports from views or stored procedures that I have designed, what is the easiest way to do that, I have sql server 2000 running, no exchange server installed on my server, only IIS and SQL Server. A real life situation would be to email me stock levels of inventory on a weekly basis.

Do you have SQL Reporting Services installed?  That would be the best fit solution for this requirement.
