I'm having a problem with adding a local variable into my body of a html email sent using the sp_send_dbmail .  My code is below at the moment I'm getting this error


"The data types text and nvarchar are incompatible in the add operator."
alter procedure sp_1
 
@email nvarchar(50)
as
 
declare @username nvarchar(50)
declare @password nvarchar(50)
declare @email2 nvarchar(50)
declare @html nvarchar(max)
 
 
set @email2 = (select email from aspnet_membership where email = @email)
set @username = (select username from aspnet_Users u join aspnet_membership m on m.userid = u.userid where m.email = @email)
set @password = (select password from aspnet_membership where email = @email)
set @html = 'some html code' + @username + 'some html code';
 exec msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail 
		@profile_name='emailprofile', 
		@recipients= @email2 ,
		@subject= "Password",
		@body = @html,
		@body_format = html

Try replacing the below statement

set @html = 'some html code' + @username + 'some html code';

To

set @html = N'some html code' + cast(@username as Nvarchar) + N'some html code';

This should help you out

Thanks for the relpy, I've done what you suggested but I'm still getting the same error message.

The data types ntext and nvarchar are incompatible in the add operator.
 

DECLARE @HTML  NVARCHAR(MAX)
 
@html = N'some html code' + cast(@username as Nvarchar) + N'some html code';

Ok, Try this one out:

Make sure that Username in the table aspnet_Users is of varchar datatype.
alter procedure sp_1
 
@email nvarchar(50)
as
declare @username nvarchar(50),
        @password nvarchar(50),
        @email2 nvarchar(50),
        @html nvarchar(max);
 
set @email2 = (select email from aspnet_membership where email = @email)
set @username = (select username from aspnet_Users u join aspnet_membership m on m.userid = u.userid where m.email = @email)
set @password = (select password from aspnet_membership where email = @email)
set @html = N'some html code' + cast(@username as Nvarchar) + N'some html code';
 exec msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail 
                @profile_name='emailprofile', 
                @recipients= @email2 ,
                @subject= "Password",
                @body = @html,
                @body_format = 'HTML'
