Hello

I am using TSQL to dynamically construct an html email for our customers. I need to retrieve and insert a signature (stored jpeg image in sql server table) into a section of the email. The signature will vary, depending on who the customer service rep is for the customer.

I can determine which signature to pull from the database, but am not sure how I can include it in the html of the email.

Any suggestions as to how to do this?

Thanks

So to be clear you have chosen to store the jpeg in the database.  Is that correct?

Yes, I need to do this because the image I need to retrieve depends on a user id variable in my stored procedure - it can vary....

I understand.  It is just that typically it is best to store the image on the file system and just have the name in the database.  Another approach is to use a "hybrid" solution using SQL Server's FILESTREAM storage volume.

Having said that if you need to retrieve an image store in SQL Server you will need to rely on your front-end language (VB6, .NET, etc.) in order to do that.
