I am using SQL 2005 dbmail and am trying to add parameters to the @query parameter:

                  EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail
                        @profile_name = @profile,
                        @recipients = @recipients,
                        @subject = @subject,
                        @body = @body,
                        @body_format = 'HTML',
                        @execute_query_database = @db_name,
                        @importance = 'Normal',
                        @query = 'finishedgoods.dbo.FG_SP_EMAIL_Rpt_PDICustomerUnitsSoldSN',---NEED TO ADD PARAMETERS TO THIS
                        @attach_query_result_as_file = 1,
                        @query_attachment_filename = @namedfile,
                        @query_result_separator = '      ',
                        @query_result_no_padding=1,
                        @query_result_width = 600

This works fine with the line @query ='finishedgoods.dbo.FG_SP_EMAIL_Rpt_PDICustomerUnitsSoldSN' without parameters and with an integer parameter of 2 on the end:

@query = 'finishedgoods.dbo.FG_SP_EMAIL_Rpt_PDICustomerUnitsSoldSN 2'

What I am trying to do is add additional non integer parameters to this with dates:

@query = 'finishedgoods.dbo.FG_SP_EMAIL_Rpt_PDICustomerUnitsSoldSN 7/1/2014 7/17/2014 2'

so that there are 3 parameters passed to the stored procedure:  date1 =  7/1/2014 date2 = 7/17/2014 and integer 2.

Any suggestions?  It errors out as soon as I put any of the dates in ''.

Have you tried adding "EXEC" in the beginning of the query? Does this query work outside of dbmail scope?
Does it error out when you pass params with their names, like sp_storedprocedure @date1 = 7/1/2014, @date2 = 7/17/2014, @integer=2"?

The SP does work outside of the scope of dbmail.  It returns the same whether or not 'EXEC' is added at the beginning.  I did get it to work combining both answers:

@query = 'finishedgoods.dbo.FG_SP_EMAIL_Rpt_PDICustomerUnitsSoldSN @start_date=''7/1/2014'', @end_date=''7/17/2014'',  @areaID=''2'''

Evidently it needs the sp parameter name, the double quotes, AND a comma between the parameters.

Thank you both very much!
