step 1: Connecting to Database and reading data from DB

you have to use a odbc or SQLconnection to get the data from DB, you can follow the below example for the same.

Step 2: write the data to a PDF file...

.NET natively does not support writing to a pdf file, you have to use a third party library which are publicly available.

The below is a library which can help you in writing to pdf file... how to use it and all with examples are also given in the same url.

Step 3: Send that via e-mail as an attachement.

Follow the below link on how to send that using an e-mail

Yes. It is possible. Instead of file content save file physical file path (it could be network path).

Ensure that you have the read/write permission to the shared path.


Write code to attach the file and send as email. Refer below one for that:
