I have HTML text in a field.  I need to get it into a file on my server.

I am using the attached SQL code in a SPROC and need help getting it running.  By now I have completely screwed it up, so please set me straight.  At present I am getting an error -2146828212 on the 'OpenTextFile' and an error -2147211483 on the WriteLine

@AttachmentHTMLContent has already been correctly loaded with the data I want to write
@EmailAttachmentFileLocation has the full path to the filename I want to use (e.g. "D:\Folder1\Folder2\Folder3\Folder4\Folder5\Sample Doc.html")


EXECUTE @OLEResult = sp_OACreate 'Scripting.FileSystemObject', @FS OUT

PRINT @OLEResult

IF @OLEResult <> 0 PRINT 'Scripting.FileSystemObject got an error'
 

--Open a file

execute @OLEResult = sp_OAMethod @FS, 'OpenTextFile', @FileID OUT, @EmailAttachmentFileLocation, 8, 1

PRINT @OLEResult

IF @OLEResult <> 0 PRINT 'OpenTextFile got an error'
 

--Write Text1

execute @OLEResult = sp_OAMethod @FileID, 'WriteLine', Null, @AttachmentHTMLContent

PRINT @OLEResult

IF @OLEResult <> 0 PRINT 'WriteLine got an error'

EXECUTE @OLEResult = sp_OADestroy @FileID

EXECUTE @OLEResult = sp_OADestroy @FS

Open in new window

Do you have to use SQL Server for this? Couldn't you use ASP.NET or another web server technology?
It's really just 5 lines of code in C#.
