I am using the following code, see attached code in my query to convert an image to rtf.

At present the two fields outputted are applicantid, RTF

I want to add another field to the output, but cannot seem to be able to do so.

The field is p.surname which is of varchar(20)

i.e.

DECLARE YourCursor CURSOR
        FOR SELECT  c.applicantid, p.surname                    
            FROM    applicant a
                    LEFT OUTER JOIN coverletter c ON a.applicantid = c.applicantid
                    LEFT OUTER JOIN PersonalInformation p ON a.ApplicantID = p.ApplicantID
            WHERE   c.date_dt >= @start and c.date_dt < @end
           
Can anybody help?

Not sure what you're needing to DO w/ surname once you get it ... but this should get it into the table for you.
