Email Data from SQL 2005 View - Automatically

I have created a custom View that populates with todays new customers. I would like an email sent everytime a new customer is added. I am looking for a solution or method to email as new customers are added into system. My SQL 2005 View name is NewCustomers. I need something that maybe watches this view and as new data populates it sends the email with the data in the view in the body of the text. (or in an attachment if need be)

First you can configure MS SQL Server to be able to send emails with Database Mail feature.

http://www.databasejournal.com/features/mssql/article.php/3626056/Database-Mail-in-SQL-Server-2005.htm

Then you can set up a SQL Server Agent job to run your view periodically throughout the day and email the results.

Once you have Database Mail configured, profiles added and correct permissions granted, you could create a trigger on the table that sends an email

Something like this (untested, going from top of my head):

create trigger email_on_new_trig on tblCust
after insert
as
  Declare @newcust char(10), @newcustname char(50), @msg char(100)

  select @newcust = CustID, @newcustname = CustName
  from Cust c join Inserted i on c.CustID = i.CustID;

  set @msg = 'New Customer Created: '+@newcust+'  Name: '+@newcustname

  exec msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail
       @profile_name = 'Your DBMail Profile'
      ,@recipients = 'you@yourdomain.com'
      ,@subject = 'New Customer created'
      ,@body = @msg
go

Open in new window


(You may need to tweak it for exact syntax, as I said, it's off the top of my head)

This got me moving in the correct direction. Used different system to accomplish system.
