I kindly request you to help me on how to create a simple package for the following senior, I'm new in this area and i did a workaround inside Business Intelligence Development Studio, it seems to me it is easy so far but after specifying for me which flows to use.

1-Open a connection to MS SQL Server R2
2-Choose a Table (In my senior it is one table)
3-Write a query

3.1- if the query retrieve records then do the following
            Send a Mail
            Write a DML like updating another table
            do nothing

3.2  This will be scheduled in the database to be run every minute (don't worry the DB   Administrator will take care after i send him the package file)

what flows to use and what about the query i'm using :

Four Main Columns:
Request NO
status    ------        Status has values like (Open =1, Closed=2, Canceled=3)
et          ----------    End Time
sdate     ------        Date

Select Count(*)
From Table
Where status = 1
            Server Time > et            
            Server Date = sdate
1- What is the right type of the server time and date, i'm using datetime2(7) for field End Time and Date for field sdate.

2- After i get a record with a status of Open, i need to change the record to a status of Closed to prevent the job from sending a message every minute, so where shall i write this DML statement:

UPDATE table
SET status = 2
WHERE   Server Time > et            
              Server Date = sdate
               status = 1

3- When sending the message how can i define or pass the request number field of that particular record in the message body.
